About Contagion

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.

Directed by Steven Soderbergh from an original screenplay by Scott Z. Burns, Contagion also stars Bryan Cranston, Jennifer Ehle and Sanaa Lathan. It is produced by Michael Shamberg, Stacey Sher and Gregory Jacobs, with Jeff Skoll, Michael Polaire, Jonathan King and Ricky Strauss serving as executive producers. The creative filmmaking team includes production designer Howard Cummings, editor S tephen Mirrione, costume designer Louise Frogley and composer Cliff Martinez.

A Warner Bros. Pictures presentation, in association with Participant Media and Imagenation Abu Dhabi, a Double Feature Films/Gregory Jacobs Production, Contagion will be distributed by Warner Bros. Pictures, a Warner Bros. Entertainment Company. The film is rated PG-13 for disturbing content and some language.
