Almost after ten years, Contagion is surprisingly back in business again

A movie with the story of a horrible and mysterious virus spreading in China was released in 2011 and saw moderate success. However, it became a hit in 2020.

The story of the movie has shown incredible similarity with the reality.

The movie, Contagion, was not the one which made business or was a blockbuster, though it starred actors like Matt Damon, Gwyneth Paltrow, Jude Law, Kate Winslet and Michael Douglas.

In 2011, it was ranked 61st in the list of the movies which did business.

Almost after ten years, Contagion is surprisingly back in business again. It made the list of most downloaded movies in the US Apple iTunes Store. 

Moreover, people's tendency to search the name of this movie has increased according to Google search list.

Contagion was produced by the Warner Bros. They said the movie was ranked 270th in the list of the most popular movies of the world, when the first coronavirus outbreak occurred in China.

Three months later, it has ranked ninth. Only the eight movies of the Harry Potter series are above it. 

The reason behind this popularity is coronavirus. The current outbreak of coronavirus has many similarities with the story of the movie, which was made almost a decade ago.

Till Wednesday, the number of coronavirus cases has risen worldwide to more than 115,800, with 4,200 deaths.
