Sandra Bullock and George Clooney finds themselves in space for this out of this world thriller by director Alfonso Cuaron. The first trailer for GRAVITY sets up quite a cliff hanger for the new sci-fi flick.Sandra Bullock goes where she's never gone before--into space. Bullock's co-star George Clooney revisits the outer limits once again after the disastrous Steven Soderbergh's space drama Solaris in 2002. From Mexican director Alfonso Cuaron (Y Tu Mamá También, Children of Men, Harry Potter and the Prisoner of Azkaban) comes an intriguing project that stars Sandra Bullock and George Clooney as astronauts sent into orbit literally when their space station breaks apart. The scene in the trailer sets up the accident which might send Bullock's Dr. Stone into orbit without a lifeline.
It's not clear what happens to Clooney's character, but GRAVITY will be one to watch for since it seems to suggest that the audience might follow Bullock's character as she faces being lost in space. How long can astronauts go with the oxygen pack? There's the ticking clock for the plot. The synopsis doesn't give much away except to describe it as "a heart-pounding thriller that pulls you into the infinite and unforgiving realm of deep space." Given that IMDB only features four actors in roles, two of them as voice overs, Clooney and Bullock will be carrying the film. The poster's tagline also has an interesting concept, "Don't let go" which can either be taken literally or figuratively after watching the trailer.
GRAVITY certainly wets the appetite to see where Cuaron might take this film. We haven't seen much of Cuaron since 2006's Children of Men, so we're excited to see him back on the big screen and if he continues down the dark path in storytelling.
GRAVITY open in October.
