The new movie "Contagion" opens in theaters Friday, and people in two Chicago suburbs will probably be going to see it.

Several Elgin residents were extras in the movie. They will have their own film premiere Friday night. Some scenes were also shot in Western Springs.

"Contagion" features Matt Damon, Gwyneth Paltrow, Kate Winslet and Jude Law. It's about the rapid spread of a lethal virus.
