The new poster for Steven Soderbergh's Contagion is hazardous
Posted by: Zack Bruce
The trailer for Steven Soderbergh’s CONTAGION looked very intriguing. Sure it’s another virus film but this one is a little different. Usually in films containing a virus it takes a bite, cough, sneeze, etc. In this one, basically all you need to catch this deadly virus is to touch someone. So the people in the movie have one ultimate goal– to stay away from one another.
Another exciting thing about this film is the cast. We get stars like Matt Damon, Gwyneth Paltrow, Lawrence Fishburne, Jude Law, Marion Cotillard, Kate Winslet, Bryan Cranston, John Hawkes, and Elliot Gould. A new poster for the film is basically a biohazard sticker listing all the cities struck by the virus. It’s everywhere. No one is safe.
The story follows, “the rapid progress of a lethal airborne virus that kills within days. As the fast-moving epidemic grows, the worldwide medical community races to find a cure and control the panic that spreads faster than the virus itself. At the same time, ordinary people struggle to survive in a society coming apart.”
