In the early hours of last evening, just as the stars were starting to come out in various parts of the country, Warner Bros. unleashed the full trailer for Alfonso Cuaron’s upcoming space thriller Gravity. It’s perhaps the most intense 2-minutes you’re going to have today, assuming you don’t have a heart attack later. Or during the trailer, for that matter.
See for yourself, because that’s what it’s going to take.
Gravity tells the story of “Dr. Ryan Stone (Sandra Bullock), a brilliant engineer on her first shuttle mission, with veteran astronaut Matt Kowalski (Clooney). But on a seemingly routine spacewalk, disaster strikes. The shuttle is destroyed, leaving Stone and Kowalski 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.”
All that’s left to say is get ready for the ride. Based on the reactions from the film’s debut in Venice last week, this one is going to be quite the experience, especially in IMAX and/or 3D. It’s due out in both on October 4, 2013.
