New 'Contagion' TV Spots Are Really Catchy

Get it? [post-video postid="220170"]Steven Soderbergh's upcoming viral thriller Contagion is premiering in just a few weeks, provided humanity can survive that long. And you know what that means: TV spots! Here are two, fresh off the Petri dish. Above is the first one, which focuses more on Matt Damon and wife Gwyneth Paltrow before branching off into worldwide panic, while the other one (below) is pretty much all worldwide panic. You can also catch glimpses of Jude Law, Laurence Fishburne, Marion Cotillard, and Kate Winslet. Can't wait to watch them all slowly die of an incurable virus! I think these both look great, and I'm excited to see Soderbergh take on such an established genre. And it'll almost definitely be better than Outbreak.

The 'Contagion' Trailer Will Kills Us All!

It's like 'Outbreak' but with...Ok. It's just like 'Outbreak'. But with Soderbergh and an amazing cast. We've got the first trailer for Steven Soderbergh's latest, Contagion. The plot is similar to Outbreak, in that it's a medical thriller about a race against the clock to find a cure...yadda yadda, but Steven Soderbergh gives us hope that this could be a more moving, thoughtful film. Oh, and the cast features a murderer's row of Oscar winners that includes Gwyneth Paltrow, Matt Damon, Kate Winslet as well as Lawrence Fishburne, Bryan Cranston, Marion Cotillard, and, of course, Demetri Martin. Wait, what? Contagion opens September 9th. If we even last that long with this, this THING out there.


Steven Soderbergh Reminds Us He's Pretty Talented With Penultimate Film 'Side Effects'

If only we had let him do 'Moneyball'. After losing directing duties on Moneyball, Steven Soderbergh said "f*ck it," and decided to throw in the directing towel. After a few more films. Magic Mike was a hit as it made women everywhere go crazy and rub their titties together, which leaves Soderbergh with two films to go. The first of which is the Rooney Mara-starring Side Effects. In the film, Mara stars as a young woman whose life is perfect after Channing Tatum's return from prison. Everything is all dissolves and sailboats. Then, the dissolves get ominous and she turns to medication and Jude Law besmirching to help cope with the pressure of living with Magic Mike himself. After that, everyone is yelling at everyone else! Yelling is how you know a drama is taut. This Soderbergh is going to really make us sorry that he didn't get to make the version of Moneyball where Demetri Martin yells at Catherine Zeta-Jones.


'Haywire' Trailer Proves Soderbergh Can Do Action

Introducing the nation's deadliest, hottest killing machine. [post-album postid="201315" item="1"]Giddyup. If you ever wondered what the Bourne series would be like is Matt Damon was a crazy-hot chick, then this Haywire trailer is your Woodstock.. The plot of the film seems familiar enough: Government agent wakes up one day to find out that her employers are trying to kill her. She goes on a tear to find out why and to save her own ass. Everything else is just window dressing. We haven't seen Soderbergh tackle such a straight action flick before, and it looks like he brings a masterful touch to even the most action-packed scenes. The film boasts a cast that demands it be taken seriously, featuring Gina Carano, Ewan MacGregor, Michael Fassbender, Antonio"Puss in Boots" Banderas, and Michael Douglas. Just go ahead and get excited about this one.

New ‘Super 8' TV Spot Will Take You Back

Will this be the one that finally gives the whole movie away? J.J. Abrams's Super 8 is a throwback to another era. More specifically, it's a throwback to the 70s and 80s - even more specifically, a throwback to the scifi movies of Steven Spielberg that came out in those decades. Movies like ET and Close Encounters of the Third Kind (OK, pretty much just those two) that combined slick excitement with a true sense of wonder and awe. So it is with this TV spot, which reminds me of those halcyon days when commercials didn't feature iPhone apps, computer-manipulated talking babies, or dumb-looking guys in glasses. Watch it, and remember what it was like to watch commercials for movies in a simpler time.


Kate Winslet Is Following Her Vagina's Every Whim Again In 'Labor Day' Trailer

This film reminds me of 'The Iron Giant'. But with pie sex. In Jason Reitman's Labor Day, Kate Winslet once again plays a character who complicates her existence by jumping into bed with the wrong person. This time, it's Josh Brolin's sexy escaped convict who takes she and her son hostage. Before long, Stockholm syndrome and horny mommitis take over leading Winslet to attempt to build a life with the fugitive killer after discovering he can not only satisfy her physical needs, but do so while baking a pie. That's just showing off. Between the time period and the boy having to stay one step ahead of the law in order to protect their house guest, this film reminds me of The Iron Giant. Except for the pie sex.
