This is one of my notable films of the year so I'll be watching...in 2D though if it's available otherwise I'll pass on it.

Been waiting to see how a serious, straightforward 3D drama with critical cred will be received... this could be just that test run.

Also, 3D Kate Winslet? I'm definitely interested.

Yeah, I've been looking forward to this one as well.

I don't ordinarily care for 3D, but now I'm actually curious to see what Soderbergh does with it.

But is Soderbergh going to ignore X-Men: The Last Stand?

If they can figure out something to do with this topic that I haven't seen before, I might check it out.

Soderbergh is pretty great. Law is pretty great. Why not? I may watch it.

Oh wow. I have a shelf of epidemic books and a plush Ebola toy on my desk at work. I'm very much interested.

I have Outbreak on DVD. Silly as it is, it's a great romp. There was actually a competing movie called "Crisis in the Hot Zone" which was to be directed by Ridley Scott and to star Robert Redford and Jodie Foster. Sadly, it never got off the ground.

Both films deal with some sort of virus that is harmful to our heroes, so it doesn't look promising. :(

I saw this last night and quite enjoyed it. I wouldn't really call it an "action" thriller, though, as that synopsis quoted in the opening post did. Soderbergh took a much different approach to this type of epidemic movie than most directors do or would.
