CONTAGION gets an amazing trailer
It’s about time we start seeing stuff from this project.
Apple has just released the first trailer for Steven Soderbergh’s latest film, CONTAGION, and good heavens is it one hell of a piece of footage.
The film stars a kick-ass cast including Matt Damon, Gwyneth Paltrow, Marion Cotillard, Jude Law, and Laurence Fishburne just to name a few, and follows the story of a mass disease outbreak that is threatening humanity itself. The film is one of many that Soderbergh will be giving us over the next couple of years, and seems to be a weird blend of Soderbergh’s patented style and some really intriguing discussions of disease.
Overall, the most interesting aspect of this trailer is just how much of a Soderbergh film CONTAGION looks like. With stunning HD photography, CONTAGION looks gorgeous, features an all-star ensemble cast, and what more could you ask for than a disaster picture from one of cinema’s most singular directors?
CONTAGION opens on September 9, 2011.
