Contagion features a cast with enough Oscars to play a game of chess with the statues: Marion Cotillard, Matt Damon, Laurence Fishburne, Jude Law, Gwyneth Paltrow, Kate Winslet, Bryan Cranston, Jennifer Ehle, Sanaa Lathan, Elliott Gould, Chin Han, and John Hawkes. Christ, if it wasn’t for cut and paste my carpal tunnels would be on fire. Here’s the scenario: we have a bunch of super high profile talented actors, and a script about the sudden appearance of a deadly virus in America that has been in the fear mongering news lately, except now it kills 99.99999999999% of people who have ever sat next to someone with the letter “e” in their name. The government is going to cover it up! Helicopters and blockaded towns! In three months, a billion people will be dead! In six months, a trillion! Cats and dogs, living together!

Outbreak was a crappy movie, we don’t need another one. Hell, I don’t know if we even need a good virus disaster movie at this point. Good, bad, they’re all exactly the same movie.

Here’s the trailer:

Well gosh, I’m sure that this film is getting released 2 days before the decade anniversary of 9/11 totally on accident.
