Here’s the first trailer for Steven Soderbergh’s latest film Contagion. The film follows a rapidly spreading lethal airborne virus that kills its victims within days. The government works to contain the widespread virus and panic, while racing to find a cure. It also sports a cast of fantastic actors including, but not limited to, Matt Damon, Marion Cotillard, Bryan Cranston, Kate Winslet, Jude Law, Gwyneth Paltrow, Laurence Fishburne, and John Hawkes.
I think the most notable thing to look out for, though — aside from Soderbergh’s marvelous camerawork — is how great Damon’s performance looks for just being a simple trailer.
Contagion will be released on September 9th, 2011.
