Contagion seems like a simple enough, at times overdone, plot (per Collider):
“Contagion” 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.
However, with an excellent directer (Steven Soderbergh) and an even more excellent cast (Matt Damon, Kate Winslet, Gwyneth Paltrow, Jude Law, Marion Cotillard, Lawrence Fishbourne, Bryan Cranston, and Elliott Gould) this is shaping up to look like an awfully promising thriller. Plus, at the very least, you get to see Gwyneth Paltrow die, so that will please a lot of people on it’s own. It’s due out September 9th, 2011.
