Technically, this is a spoiler alert regarding what follows, though if you’ve followed our posts so far on Contagion, you won’t be surprised at what Matt Damon discusses below.

Contagion is out already in the US and has opened strongly. We poor put-upon folk in the UK have to wait until 21st October to see it, but it looks excellent and since director Steven Soderbergh rarely puts a foot wrong and more often than not puts it very right, it should be well worth the wait.

In this clip, Damon is interviewed about the scene (presumably pretty early on) when his character is told that his wife has died. As he discusses the choices that were made, the progress of his character through the scene and the alternating shock, anger and disbelief he portrays, you are left feeling increasingly confident that this material is going to be well handled.

Thanks Yahoo.

Dave has been writing for HeyUGuys since mid-2010 and has found them to be the most intelligent, friendly, erudite and insightful bunch of film fans you could hope to work with. He's gone from ham-fisted attempts at writing the news to interviewing Lawrence Bender, Renny Harlin and Julian Glover, to writing articles about things he loves that people have actually read. He has fairly broad tastes as far as films are concerned, though given the choice he's likely to go for Con Air over Battleship Potemkin most days. He's pretty sure that 2001: A Space Odyssey is the most overrated mess in cinematic history.
