Watch: Gwyneth Paltrow and Matt Damon bite the big one in “Contagion”

Pin it

Oh, Gwyneth Paltrow. When she's not writing super-yuppie cookbooks and singing on Glee, she's going to Asia and coming back with the bird flu and inadvertently killing us all — and not even the A list is safe! Because it looks like she takes Matt Damon, Kate Winslet, Jude Law, and Marion Cotillard down with her in Steven Soderbergh's Contagion. (Seriously, there are about one-million famous people in this movie. It's like a sweaty, vomit-y Ocean's Eleven.)

I have the give the woman her props, though: she looks very convincing as a person who is dying from an incredibly virulent form of disease.

And, before you say anything: yes, I know Matt Damon doesn't actually die in this trailer. But his character's wife is Patient Zero, so… he's probably going to die. Just my hunch.
