Gravity-PosterIn the past couple days, Warner Bros. have been teasing us brilliantly with new footage from Alfonso Cuarón’s anticipated next feature, Gravity, releasing the first two of three new trailers.

Adding to what we’ve seen so far, the studio have now released the third trailer in the set, and the poster to match, giving us yet another awesome look at what’s to come for Cuarón’s return.

The film has already been set to open the Venice Film Festival next month, before heading to Toronto in September, all of which will give it an even stronger position on the awards radar come Oscar season.

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 will take centre stage as the sole leading cast.

Cuarón is directing from a script he co-wrote with his son, Jonás Cuarón (Año uña / Year of the Nail), with David Heyman (Harry Potter, I Am Legend) producing alongside the elder Cuarón.

Gravity will be released into regular and IMAX theatres on October 4th in the US, slightly ahead of its UK release date on 18th October. Needless to say, we’re very much looking forward to its arrival.
