Trailering Contagion

Talk about timing. Steven Soderbergh’s lethal virus outbreak thriller starring Kate Winslet, Matt Damon, Jude Law, Gwyneth Paltrow, Marion Cotillard, and Laurence Fishburne is the perfect post 9/11 metaphor for the 10th anniversary. As the fast-moving epidemic grows, the worldwide medical community races to find a cure and control the panic as ordinary people struggle to survive in a society tearing apart. Contagion (Sept. 9) looks like the kind of gripping political conspiracy thriller my generation grew up with in the ’70s, which Soderbergh is definitely channeling. Can’t wait to see it in IMAX.
