While most of the film world is eagerly awaiting the debut trailer for Chris Nolan’s upcoming film, The Dark Knight Rises, Steven Soderbergh may have just stolen the week.
WB has released a trailer for Soderbergh’s upcoming film, Contagion, and while it does promote it’s all star cast, it also gives us a great look as to just how intense and impressive Soderbergh’s first true-blue thriller has the potential of being.

Starring Marion Cotillard, Matt Damon, Laurence Fishburne, Jude Law, Gwyneth Paltrow, Kate Winslet and Bryan Cranston, the film follows the story of an H1N1 outbreak that spreads across the world.Â Penned by Scott Z. Burns, the film features a score from Cliff Martinez who did Soderbergh’s SOLARIS, and overall it appears to be one hell of a film.
As a fan of Soderbergh’s, this writer would have been a fan of the trailer no matter what, but this looks like a genuinely fantastic film.Â Contagion looks absolutely thrilling, and with that great cast, you really can’t go wrong. Â If you don’t believe me, head over to Apple to watch the trailer in all of its HD glory, as it features Soderbergh’s patented HD filmmaking.
