Contagion Trailer

Jesus, this looks frightening. One of the things that has been so depressing about horror movies of late is that they are so divorced from contemporary life. They don’t touch upon the inherent fears of modern society.

Looks like director Steven Soderbergh has managed to make a movie that does tap into the collective fear of germs and widespread infectious disease outbreaks. Instead of blood and gore, Soderbergh is taking the finger nails on a chalkboard approach.

September 9th in theaters. Starring Matt Damon, Gwyneth Paltrow, Kate Winslet, Jude Law, Marion Cotillard, Lawrence Fishbourne, Jonathan Hawkes and Bryan Cranston.
