Gwyneth Paltrow doesn't look so hot in 'Contagion' trailer

After watching the trailer for Steven Soderbergh's "Contagion," we're now rethinking hugging loved ones when they come back from traveling. Or, frankly, touching anything at all.

The thriller tells the story of a virus that spreads with just an inkling of contact, and kills off Gwyneth Paltrow and plenty of the population before the two and a half minute trailer is over.

The all-star cast includes Paltrow, Matt Damon, Jude Law (why yes, that is the cast of "The Talented Mr. Ripley," together again!) Marion Cotillard, Laurence Fishburne, Kate Winslet and Sanaa Lathan.

While Paltrow plays the traveler who comes back home infected, Damon is the husband she leaves behind as the world dissolves into panic over the rapidly spreading disease.

"Contagion" arrives September 9.

    Outbreak II is looking awesome! It's a shame that Dustin Hoffman won't be back for this sequel.

    Ugh! I hate these end-of-the-human-race movies. They're stressful to watch. Every minute you're hoping that something will STOP THE MADNESS. And they're depressing. Although, if I thought I'd never see Lady Gaga again, I wouldn't be too sad about that. Not saying I want anything bad to happen to her. Just don't want to see her anymore. That's all.

      Calling other people names (even if it is accurate) doesn't show a high level of maturity, either... just saying.

    I've already seen this movie. Last time it was called "Outbreak", & there will be a "miracle cure" in the end. Some1 will unknowingly have it in their backpack or shoe or baby's formula! Sorry to give away the whole plot, just trying to save people some $$ in this cr. ap. py economy! You're welcome!!

    Finally, something everyone wants to see – Gwyneth Paltrow dying a horrible death.
