Geez, talk about a close -up. Check out these two character posters for Gravity, the new film from director Alfonso Cuarón (Children of Men). Sandra Bullock and George Clooney’s worried expressions get full frame in these two new posters.
A medical engineer and an astronaut work together to survive after an accident leaves them adrift in space.
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.
