After what we saw at Comic-Con this past weekend, Alfonso CuarÃ³n‘s Gravity promises to be one of the greatest space age thrill rides that comes with a series of one-shot takes. We recently saw a trailer titled “Detatch” that saw one of the character’s (Sandra Bullock) desperately trying to remove a harness before she can be thrust into the edge of space. While the clip did end on a cliffhanger, Warner Brothers has released two more clips that will surely make tensions rise.
Generally, I refrain from posting clips. But the movie looks so good, and there is positive buzz surrounding this film like some crazed whirling dervish, that I couldn’t help but post these clips. So if you want to go into this movie with a fresh pair of eyes, then do not click ahead. But if you want to feel the same fear that you felt when you saw the most recent trailer, then go right on ahead and hit the jump.
The first clip is titled “Drifting.” Seems like an appropriate title considering it is following up after the events of the second trailer. We see how lonely space can really be. The unknowing, the darkness, the virtual silence that surrounds you is unnerving, and set a precedence to the fear that when things go bad in space, they go really bad.
The second trailer below is called “I Got You” and it’s not some bad Sonnie and Cher cover song sung by Bullock and George Clooney, it’s more of a tension driven clip – what a surprise. We see Bullock and Clooney, presumably the remaining crew members, scramble to reach each other and get back inside the ship. While it may look like a successful mission at first, the lack of gravity propels them closer to the Earth’s atmosphere. We see the two try to use anything to break their fall, and we close with Bullock trying to grab a hold of Clooney before he is pulled into Earth.
Gravity opens in theaters on October 4.
