Well this is a bummer. Carriers wasn't even on my radar until Paramount Vantage put out a chain of intense trailers showing a world ravaged by viral pandemic. Now, according to Fangoria, I'm not even going to have the opportunity to see Chris Pine and Piper Perabo wear cute surgical masks while they try to survive the end of times. You can't go from "What's Carriers?" to "Man, I can't wait to see Carriers!" to "What do you mean I can't see Carriers?". That's just mean, Paramount Vantage.

But if you live in one of the following cities that isn't Austin, TX, September 4th should be a good day to wear a surgical mask of your own to the theater and freak out everyone sitting next to you:

- Atlanta, GA
- Charlotte, NC
- Denver, CO
- Detroit, MI
- Minneapolis, MN
- Philadelphia, PA
- Pittsburgh, PA
- Phoenix, AZ
- Portland, OR
- St. Louis, MO

Oh well, guess I can find solace in the knowledge that there will be an inevitably uncut Blu-ray of Carriers, which is PG-13 theatrically. Gotta admit, though, watching the trailer below is going to make that wait a little bittersweet.
