'Contagion' Trailer: So Many Stars, So Much Disease

July 15, 2011


In Steven Soderbergh's Contagion, the world faces the threat of a new, deadly airborne virus that's highly contagious, hard to fight, and seems to possess enough pop culture knowledge to know to make killing Gwyneth Paltrow a priority. Scary! Here's the first trailer for the thriller, which stars far more people than you think it's going to star. It starts off and you're like, "Alright, so we've got Matt Damon and Paltrow in this, got it," but then there's more! Kate Winslet? Laurence Fishburne? The Not David Spade from Just Shoot Me? Marion Cotillard? Ken Jeong? No, that wasn't Ken Jeong, but that is Jude Law with a wonky tooth! This could be a good one.

It all starts meagerly enough with Gwyneth Paltrow, but how long until all of our hottest stars are covering Cee Lo? What a powerful metaphor for covering Cee Lo.
