It’s time for paparazzi to get some press as both Laughing Squid and Just Jared have leaked out images from the destroyed San Francisco set of Steven Soderbergh’s airborne Contagion. Inside you can see just how bad the apocalypse will hit this 3D thriller that stars Matt Damon, Jude Law, Kate Winslet, Marion Cotillard, Gwyneth Paltrow, Laurence Fishburne, Josie Ho, Demetri Martin, Jennifer Ehle, Bryan Cranston, and Elliott Gould.
In theaters October 21, 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.
“The corner of Taylor and Union was spookily transformed this weekend. It looked like post-pandemic America, with mounds of infected clothes thrown out on the street, political posters and memorials for the dead posted everywhere.”
