Contagion: A Must-See Action-Thriller In 2011
Sci-fi and action-thriller fans may be looking forward to the opening weekend of Contagion. The cast boasts of a star-studded lineup with Matt Damon, Gwyneth Paltrow, Laurence Fishburne, Jude Law and Kate Winslet just to name a few.
It is the second time that Damon and Law are working together since The Talented Mr. Ripley in 1999. Add director Steven Soderbergh and an interesting plot to the mix to make it another potential blockbuster hit.
Contagion is about a rapidly spreading deadly virus and a team of doctors hired by the CDC to control it and ultimately find a cure. As they race against time, the stakes are higher as the virus spreads around the world.
The plot may be fictional but it seems close to reality. Aside from the fact that this film will attract sci-fi and action-thriller fans, even fans of horror movies might find Contagion worth watching.
The film premiered at the 68th Venice Film Festival on September 3, 2011 and will be commercially released on September 9, 2011.Get free updates directly to your e-mail from Showbiz Renegade.
