Warner Brothers has release a new trailer for Alfonso Cuarón’s Gravity. It’s hard to capture the sense of vertigo that will probably be present on the big screen, but I think this movie is going be an amazing piece of science fiction suspense using only two characters, sound (or lack of it), and the impending death by orbital re-entry if the two astronauts can’t save themselves.
Just recently James Cameron called Gravity “the best space film ever done.” By that I’m assuming the most realistic and suspenseful.
Here’s what Gravity is about directly from Warner Bros.
Academy Award® winners Sandra Bullock (The Blind Side) and George Clooney (Syriana) star in Gravity, a heart-pounding thriller that pulls you into the infinite and unforgiving realm of deep space. The film was directed by Oscar® nominee Alfonso Cuarón (Children of Men).
Bullock plays Dr. Ryan Stone, a brilliant engineer on her first shuttle mission, with veteran astronaut Matt Kowalski (Clooney). But on a seemingly routine spacewalk, disaster strikes. The shuttle is destroyed, leaving Stone and Kowalski completely alone—tethered to nothing but each other and spiraling out into the blackness.
The deafening silence tells them they have lost any link to earth…and any chance for rescue. As fear turns to panic, every gulp of air eats away at what little oxygen is left.
But the only way home may be to go further out into the terrifying expanse of space.
