If you’ve never seen an Alfonso Cuaron film, I highly encourage you to do so right now! If you love Harry Potter like I do, The Prisoner of Azkaban was directed by him, and it’s my favorite one. The man can take a tracking shot and extend it better than I’ve ever seen before. When I heard he was teaming up with George Clooney and Sandra Bullock for a sci-fi film; I knew I’d be excited to see it. Below, is the trailer for Gravity, and it looks to be a great one!
Here’s the synopsis for Gravity:
Sandra Bullock plays Dr. Ryan Stone, a brilliant medical engineer on her first shuttle mission, with veteran astronaut Matt Kowalsky (George 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.
Gravity opens in 2D, 3D, and IMAX 3D October 4th.
