Entertainment Magazine: Film: 2010: "Contagion"

Contagion is contagious

Principal photography is underway on Warner Bros. Pictures' global thriller "Contagion," being directed by Academy Award® winner Steven Soderbergh ("Traffic").

The film brings together a stellar international ensemble cast, including Academy Award® winner Marion Cotillard ("La Vie en Rose," "Inception"); Academy Award® winner Matt Damon ("Good Will Hunting," the "Bourne" films); Oscar® nominee Laurence Fishburne ("What's Love Got to Do With It," "The Matrix"); Oscar® nominee Jude Law ("Cold Mountain," "Sherlock Holmes"); Academy Award® winner Gwyneth Paltrow ("Shakespeare in Love," "Iron Man"); and Academy Award® winner Kate Winslet ("The Reader," "Titanic").

"Contagion" follows the rapid progress of a lethal airborne virus that kills within days.

As the fast-moving epidemic grows, the worldwide medical community races to find a cure and control the panic that spreads faster than the virus itself. At the same time, ordinary people struggle to survive in a society coming apart.
