The trailer gave us a glimpse of what promises to be a spectacular unbroken shot, and it’s thought the film will not only open with a seventeen-minute long shot, but also feature many more unbroken shots throughout. And thus we come to the next trailer in what is set to be a three-part series, giving us a look at Sandra Bullock as she drifts off into outer space, hoping against hope for salvation.
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.
George Clooney of course stars opposite Bullock, with the two set to be front and centre as the only main cast.
Cuarón is directing from a script he co-wrote with his son, Jonás Cuarón (Año uña / Year of the Nail), with Alfonso Cuarón producing alongside David Heyman (Harry Potter, I Am Legend).
Gravity is set to be released in regular and IMAX theatres on October 4th in the US, and has its UK release date set for two weeks later on 18th October. In the meantime, here’s the latest trailer, along with the new teaser poster.
