I don’t know how many people were able to catch a movie released straight to DVD a couple years ago called CARRIERS, but to me that was an extremely overlooked movie that depicted the aftermath of a worldwide takeover of an extremely lethal virus. A new trailer has surfaced for Steven Soderbergh’s CONTAGION which kind of looks like what a prequel to CARRIERS would look like. CONTAGION stars Matt Damon, Gweneth Paltrow, Marion Cotillard, Kate Winslett and Laurence Fishburne and follows the growth and outbreak of a virus with extremely deadly side effects that sweeps over the world.
There is quite a bit of imagery at the beginning to put anyone with OCD on edge or happens to have a phobia of germs and follows with doctors struggling to understand and of course eventual panic and complete desolation. The film was directed by Steven Soderbergh and open in theater’s on September 9, 2011.
