io9 [Celluloid 02.15.11] post apocalyptic movie news scifi

New images from the virus film Contagion, which people are calling Crash meets Outbreak, show Jude Law (who plays an angry damn-the-man blogger) handing out leaflets to the ruined masses, warning that the CDC is FULL OF LIES. Methinks Jude needs to be a bit more concerned about his ridiculous suit than the CDC. But the rest of the snaps look fantastic.

Images are courtesy of Laughing Squid, who were clever enough to snag a few pictures from the set, and Just Jared.

The film is "centered on the threat posed by a deadly disease and an international team of doctors contracted by the CDC to deal with the outbreak." Months ago, Jude revealed to io9 that he would be playing a conspiracy blogger, which is why we find these set pics so interesting. What use does a blogger have for paper? Is the power out on the West coast? Also what sort of disease causes the city's inhabitants to dump all of their blankets and clothes out onto the streets? Color us interested.

Images after the break.

Picturing Jude Law playing a grumpy conspiracy theorist is making me laugh.
