Contagion is a frightening, sci-fi thriller from Steven Soderbergh about a terrible virus set loose on the world that begins wiping out all humans, very quickly. Well, it’s not so much sci-fi since little of this story will be fiction. Hence, why it’ll be so terrifying, the whole concept is frighteningly possible. 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.
Below is a gallery of six new character posters, each featuring a members of the stellar ensemble.
