Gravity-PosterAlfonso Cuarón’s Gravity has already begun impressing critics following its world premiere at Venice – you can read our review here – and the momentum is naturally expected to build towards the Oscars early next year.

The film has continued its tour on the festival circuit at Telluride, before heading to Toronto this weekend. And it was part of the announcement of the 2013 London Film Festival line-up this morning, giving us just a few short weeks to go before its UK premiere.

The first teaser trailer landed back in the spring, and was more recently followed by a brilliant trio of trailers showcasing some spectacular longshot sequences. And now Warner Bros. have launched a new trailer, teasing more from Cuarón’s anticipated space-set thriller.

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.

Sandra Bullock and George Clooney are front and centre here as essentially the sole cast members, with Cuarón directing from a script he co-wrote with his son, Jonás Cuarón.

Gravity is set to be released in 3D and IMAX 3D on October 4th in the US, and will follow a little later than expected in the UK on 8th November, with its release date pushed back a little to accommodate for its LFF bow.
