Steven Soderbergh's thriller “Contagion” is expected to be released in October of 2011. Film crews today shot action scenes of Black Hawk helicopters zooming along the Amstutz, a very popular piece of highway with filmmakers because it is low-use (part of an incomplete project, it goes nowhere and is only used for local traffic). Film crews should be finished shooting by 6:00 AM tomorrow and the expressway reopened to public.
Only two things could get me to the theater for yet another “OMG, WE ALL GONNA DIE” mutant killer virus movie; Steven Soderbergh has the talent to make it less cliché than all of the others, and Laurence Fishburne NEVER fails in any role.
As awesome as they are to see, I have to say that it is a bit unnerving to have a pair of Black Hawks thunder low over my house.
