Well, this The Talented Mr. Ripley reunion is not off to a good start. In Steven Soderbergh's new thriller Contagion, Gwyneth Paltrow comes down with a terrible case of bird flu while abroad, then promptly comes home to her husband Matt Damon, infects the hell out of him, and dies. Well, forget you, too, bird flu! Meanwhile, as the super-bug begins to spread from there, Jude Law gets involved in trying to contain it (we're guessing that there is no time for a homoerotic bath-tub reprisal between him and Damon, but at least Damon looks doomed enough for Law to have his Ripley revenge) with the help of other A-listers like Kate Winslet and Marion Cotillard. It doesn't go so well, to judge from the heaps of dead bodies strewn throughout this trailer. We have to hand it to Steven Soderbergh: After making a cast of huge movie stars look beautiful and eternal in the Ocean's Eleven movies, he's basically doing the opposite here. Everyone looks awful and probably dies! (You can put that on the poster if you need, guys.) [Apple]
