Contagion again getting popularity online as the movie depicts current coronavirus like virus pandemic globally. Very scary movie with ensemble cast.

Well?

The funny thing is, the writers of Contagion talk about this whole Covid-19 pandemic not to long ago and despite the movie was release back in 2011, the writers knew something like this was gonna happened at some point. Its not a matter of how, but when? If anyone likes the movie Contagion, I also recommend checking out the movie Outbreak as well.

Here's an article if anyone wants to read about Contagion vs today's pandemic. Link: How the movie ‘Contagion’ perfectly predicted the 2020 covid-19 crisis

Edit: I saw the movie back in 2011 when it release and Matt Damon was awesome in that movie and as well Anna Jacoby-Heron. I might rewatch it cause this movie is almost a decade old. I wonder what Matt Damon thinks all of this now?

@magnum3000: @magnum3000: Contagion and Outbreak are both pretty good movies, but I think the Contagion writers did better research. Also, I didn't notice Steven Soderbergh directed it. Man, that guy is great.
