Check out this great new trailer for Gravity, the upcoming sci-fi film from director Alfonso Cuarón (Children of Men). While the last few trailers have been more or less clips from the film, this piece of marketing offers more footage and gives us some background to Sandra Bullock’s character.
James Cameron, in a recent interview with Variety, had this to say about the film:
“I was stunned, absolutely floored…I think it’s the best space photography ever done, I think it’s the best space film ever done, and it’s the movie I’ve been hungry to see for an awful long time.”
We. Are. So. Excited.
Character posters and official synopsis beneath the trailer.
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.
