A mate of mine brought the following trailer to my attention this week – thanks Hirsty!
Gravity is the forthcoming film from writer/director, Alfonso Cuaron (Y Tu Mama Tambien, Children of Men, Harry Potter and the Prisoner of Azkaban), and stars George Clooney and Sandra Bullock – don’t worry though, it’s not another rom-com.
The premise is great – firstly it’s a two-hander (a rarity – can anyone name any famous examples, I’m having a mind block?). Secondly, if the trailer is anything to go by, it’s high on drama and tension – when I watched the following clip with three or four others, everyone had questions and it got us all talking.
The set up is simple – two astronauts attempt to return to Earth after debris crashes into their space shuttle, leaving them drifting alone in orbit.
Check out the trailer below:
Gravity is out on the 4th October in the US and two weeks later on the 18th in the UK.
