Contagion Movie by Steven Soderbergh

Contagion MovieDirector Steven Soderbergh is working on Contagion, an upcoming action thriller about a dangerous virus outbreak. The cast includes Matt Damon, Kate Winslet, Jude Law, Gwyneth Paltrow, and Marion Cotillard. The movie Contagion will be released on October 21, 2011.

"The movie Contagion is an action-thriller centered on the threat posed by a deadly disease and an international team of doctors contracted by the CDC to deal with the outbreak."

- Gwyneth Paltrow as Beth Emhoff, a business woman back from a trip in Asia and who's struck down by a mysterious ailment
- Matt Damon as Thomas Emhoff, Beth's husband, who's forced to care for his wife, and soon his step-son, as her condition worsens.
- Laurence Fishburne as Dr. Ellis Cheever, the head of the Center for Disease Control (CDC)
- Kate Winslet as Dr. Erin Mears, she works for the CDC
- Marion Cotillard as Dr. Leonora Orantes, a European doctor who's working for the World Health Organization
- Jude Law as Alan Krumwiede, a blogger with an unfortunate interest in conspiracy theories,

From what I heard, Steven Soderbergh's Contagion movie won't be a sensationalist sci-fi movie, it will actually be rooted in reality: what we'll see in the movie Contagion could definitely happen today. So following the recent H1N1 outbreak, this film may revive the public’s fear... But well it's just entertainment, and maybe it's for the best: we should not let our guard down! Potential virus outbreaks are just lurking around, waiting for their time...

Don't miss the movie Contagion when it comes out in theaters!
