What Scares The Guy Who Wrote Contagion More Than Ebola

In case you hadn't noticed, Ebola has kind of become a hot topic in our news media.

Weekend Box Office: Contagion Spreads To Number One

After sitting at number one for a solid 25 days straight (the longest stretch since 1999 when The Sixth Sense held the post for 35 days in a row) The Help finally took a break and settled for second place, making room for newcomer Contagion to rule the weekend.

Good news for the box office, but only so-so for the film itself.

Watch This: Contagion Billboards Made Out Of Bacteria And Fungi

Perhaps its because I spend a good portion of every day looking at ordinary film advertisements, but I really love creative marketing. Movies have gotten so expensive and and studios have become so risk averse that every trailer and poster is simply a different version of an idea we've seen 1,000 times before.
