CONTAGION: 2011 Movie Has Gone Viral


Steven Soderberg's 2011 movie Contagion has seen a huge resurgence amid the panic over the coronavirus outbreak.

The thriller, which starred GwynethPaltrow, seems to be a carbon copy of the current global emergency. It follows a virus that begins via a live-animal market in China and is passed from bats to humans.

People have noticed the similarities and are frantically searching it on Google and posting about it on Twitter. And now the movie has hit the Top 10 on the iTunes movie rental chart.

The Hollywood Reporter points out that "it's a rare feat" for a movie released nine years ago to make the list. All the other movies came out in the past few weeks.
