Warner Home Entertainment has announced that the thriller Contagion, starring Matt Damon, Gwyneth Paltrow, Kate Winslet, Marion Cotillard, Laurence Fishburne, Jude Law and John Hawkes, will be released on Blu-ray January 3, 2012. Contagion follows a few individuals as a deadly virus reaches epidemic proportions and starts wiping out millions of people. The film is a great study of human interaction as well as human reaction, and is a fascinating story of man trying to fight against an invisible enemy given to us by director Steven Soderbergh.
I recently watched this film and found it quite disturbing on several levels. It’s a very, very good movie but I would not recommend watching it with or recommending it to anyone who has any degree of germ-a-phobia. I promise you that this will freak them out and you will have to stock up on hand sanitizer and bottled water. With that in mind, definitely give this one a watch because you will not be disappointed. Special Features include three behind-the-scenes featurettes: “Contagion: How a Virus Changes the World”, “The Reality of Contagion” and “The Contagion Detectives”.
Kate Winslet has spoken for the first time of her divorce from Sam Mendes, and of her battle to rebuild her life.
Looking sultry with a Sixties edge in a glamorous photo shoot, the Oscar-winning actress told how she coped with the sadness by “soldiering on” â€” but that she now feels as if she is at the beginning of a “new narrative”.
Winslet, 35, parted from the Reading-born stage and film director last year after seven years of marriage. They have a two-year-old son Joe, and Winslet said that although it had been “hard”, they were focusing on raising him together.
The British star, who also has a 10-year-old daughter, Mia, from her first marriage to director and writer Jim Threapleton, told Harper’s Bazaar UK: “One thing I will say about me and Sam is that it’s fine, it’s really fine. I’m not going to shit-fling, there’s no point in even going there. It is what it is.
“We’re grown-ups at the end of the day, and however hard it’s been for me, it’s been equally hard for him. And we have a child together who we both love – and raising him together, jointly and without any conflict, is absolutely key. It’s the only way to do it, and I’ve really learned that with Mia.”
Awesome news, Kate fans! Heavenly Creatures is finally being released on Blu-ray on September 12 in the UK!

Today, April 2nd, is World Autism Awareness Day. This day was labeled as such by the United Stations back in 2007. This makes it the third annual World Autism Day. Autism is a life long disease that usually appears in the first three years of a person’s life. There are a number of symptoms of the disease including the inability to communicate his or her needs verbally, not responding to name being called, and repeating words or phrases instead of speech. They might also appear deaf, even if they aren’t deaf. Autism sufferers might also display violent or aggressive behavior. If you are helping support Autism Awareness Day, you are asked to wear blue today. For local Autism Awareness Day events in your area, go here.
HBO is jumping in with their support today as well. Tonight, they will be airing an all-new documentary narrated by Kate Winslet. The movie titled A Mother’s Courage: Talking Back To Autism follows one Icelandic mother’s, Margret Dagmar Ericsdottir, journey as she battles to help her ten year old son, Keli, get treatment and improve his way of life. BjÃ¶rk and Sigur Ros also contribute music to the movie which airs tonight on HBO. Check your local listings for times in your area.
In order to mark this day, U.N. Secretary-General Ban Ki-moon made this statement: “Let us join persons with autism, their families and their advocates in a community of voices for greater awareness and understanding. Let us also look within, and re-evaluate our attitudes and those of our societies so we can remove the prejudices that discriminate against persons with disabilities. Let us dedicate ourselves to creating a fair and caring society that affords true dignity and rights for all.”
To find out more about autism, watch this video and also the trailer for A Mother’s Courage below.
A documentary narrated by actress Kate Winslet debuts on U.S. television Friday aiming to take audiences beyond narrow depictions of autism in films like Rain Man and expose them more broadly to the disability.
The film, A Mother’s Courage: Talking Back To Autism (aka The Sunshine Boy), is based upon an Icelandic woman’s journey as she meets scientists and autism experts in the United States in an effort to improve the life of her 10 year-old son.
Mother’s Courage premieres on cable TV’s HBO on World Autism Awareness Day, and shows Margret Dagmar Ericsdottir struggling to find treatments for her autistic son, Keli.
Along with Winslet, Icelandic musicians BjÃ¶rk and Sigur Ros add their voices and music to the movie, and Iceland’s first lady Dorrit Moussaieff backed the project when filming began four years ago. While celebrities bring name value to Mother’s Courage, its makers say their aim is to educate and change narrow perceptions of autism.
