    I'm a little dissappointed. I didn't know what the movie was about, all I knew was the cast and its anticipation.

    When I saw this trailer I was like "oh I didn't know it was a remake of Outbreak." :-/

    believe me folks. that cast with Soderbergh. the script - which I got to read - by Scott Z. Frank (look him up). it's NOT OUTBREAK. sure it's EASY to make a comparison but this is a realistic look at a pandemic and paranoia around it, the way the bird flu and SARS was for us. not the pulp action-fiction of OUTBREAK. give it some time you'll see. vigilance!

    This looks pretty scary to me. "Outbreak" restricted the action and setting.

    This looks bigger.

    A global pandemic is nothing to sneeze at.

    Looks like the entire planet is White expect Mr. Fishburne...I'll wait for Instant watch on Netflix. Understand that casting is is very methodical...so looking at this trailer, they decided not to cast any people of color on the entire planet. ....Think about that shit.

    Elliott gould's name is on the list but he's no where in the trailer nor in the credits at the end, wtf?

    It 'looks' like Soderbergh. I've seen this story before. We all have and not just with "Outbreak"...

    Vanessa,
    Yep, I was thinking the same thing.

    I don't know. Great actors, just not blown away. This one has to marinate for awhile. I'll wait for reviews.

    There's a lot of great actors...but am I wrong or is this the same exact plot as the 1995 film "Outbreak" with Dustin Hoffman and Renee Russo?? I feel like I've seen this.
