You have to check out this amazing new trailer for Gravity, the new film from director Alfonso Cuarón (Children of Men) starring George Clooney and Sandra Bullock.
You don’t see teasers as good as this that often. It’s only one scene, but it gives you a great idea of the sort of sci-fi “realism” that they’re going for. It’s one long take that shows the quick chain of events that causes Sandra Bullock’s character to drift off into space.
Check the trailer out and the official synopsis beneath it.
Bullock plays Dr. Ryan Stone, a brilliant medical engineer on her first shuttle mission, with veteran astronaut Matt Kowalsky (Clooney) in command of his last flight before retiring. But on a seemingly routine spacewalk, disaster strikes. The shuttle is destroyed, leaving Stone and Kowalsky 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.
