Contagion movie trailer

Is this how the world ends?

There's alot of creepy stuff about this trailer. But the most disturbing aspect is the seemingly realistic nature of it all. Obviously, the first thing that stands out is the immense star power on display here. This is one amazing ensemble. The fact that it is being directed by an expert of star-studded ensemble movies, Steven Soderberg (Traffic, Ocean's 11), makes the project even more intriguing.

End of the world scenarios for a film aren't exactly original. But it's fascinating that an Academy award winning director like Steven Soderberg is intrigued with the concept and was able to recruit some of Hollywood's biggest movie stars. Yeah... I know the subject matter is ripe for drama. But what appeals to me here is the lack of over the top special effects. The focus seems to be on reality and human interactions. So in a sense it's almost like a zombie film...without the zombies... or even blood. 

Just the terror. 

The terror of the end of the world. I really dig the movie's theme of man's inhumanity to man in the face of extreme adversity. Cause we all know that this is how it will all really go down. Not with dignity... but in an inhumane, ugly, disturbing, tragic epic mess.

Contagion stars Matt Damon, Gwyneth Paltrow, Kate Winslet, Marion Cotillard, Jude Law, and Laurence Fishburne. It is directed by Steven Soderberg. It is scheduled for release September 9, 2011
