Don't talk to anyone. Don't touch anyone. Beware the air around you. A deadly virus is mutating its way around the world in Contagion arriving onto Blu-ray Triple Play, DVD and Digital Download on 5th March 2012 from Warner Home Video.
This critically acclaimed thriller tells the story of the infectious paranoia and fear that accompany the spread of a lethal virus. Directed by Steven Soderbergh from an original screenplay by Scott Z. Burns (The Bourne Ultimatum, The Informant!), Contagion brings together a stellar international ensemble cast featuring Academy Award® winner Marion Cotillard (La Vie en Rose, Inception), Oscar® winner Matt Damon (Good Will Hunting, the Bourne films), Academy Award® nominee Laurence Fishburne (What's Love Got to Do With It, The Matrix), Academy Award® nominee Jude Law (Cold Mountain, Sherlock Holmes), Academy Award® winner Gwyneth Paltrow (Shakespeare in Love, Iron Man) and Oscar® winner Kate Winslet (The Reader, Titanic).
An international traveler reaches into the snack bowl at an airport bar before passing her credit card to a waiter. A business meeting begins with a round of handshakes. A man coughs on a crowded bus... One contact. One instant. And a lethal virus is transmitted.
When Beth Emhoff (Paltrow) returns to Minneapolis from business in Hong Kong, what she thought was jet lag takes a virulent turn. Two days later, she's dead in the ER and the doctors tell her shocked and grieving husband (Damon) they have no idea why. Soon, others exhibit the same mysterious symptoms: hacking coughs and fever, followed by seizure, brain hemorrhage... and ultimately, death. The numbers quickly multiply as the contagion sweeps across all borders, fueled by the countless human interactions that make up the course of an average day. A global pandemic explodes.
As the death toll escalates and people struggle to protect themselves and their loved ones in a society breaking down, one activist blogger (Law) claims the public isn't getting the truth about what's really going on and sets off an epidemic of paranoia and fear as infectious as the virus itself.
