The first trailer is out for Alfonso Couron’s Gravity starring Sanda Bullock and George Clooney. The film, which is set on what appears to be the International Space Station tells the tale of two astronauts trying to get back to earth after a horrible accident in space.
The movie looks pretty spectacular so far. Space can be a truly epic location when its vastness is portrayed correctly. I think there’s no better way to do that than when it is just one or two people against the blackness trying to fight for a way home. I’m looking forward to this
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.
