‘Gravity’ Trailer: Deep Space Character Exposition
Thursday, September 5th, 2013 at 12:00 pm
If you weren’t already convinced by the Venice Film Festival reaction, James Cameron’s thoughts, or any of the previousfootage, then here is one more trailer that proves Alfonso Cuaron‘s Gravity is not to be missed. While we have seen what happens to the doomed space shuttle, this new trailer offers a little character exposition, with a particular focus on Sandra Bullock‘s Dr. Ryan Stone character.
I really can’t help myself watching any of the previous trailers or clips because once is not enough. But with the film clocking in at 91 minutes, I wonder how much intense footage is actually left to enjoy. Regardless, this film will be one huge thrill ride that is filled with Cuaron’s signature long one-shot takes. Hit the jump to see the new trailer.
In addition to Bullock, Gravity also stars George Clooney. The film opens in theaters October 4.
Bullock plays Dr. Ryan Stone, a brilliant engineer on her first shuttle mission, with veteran astronaut Matt Kowalski (Clooney). But on a seemingly routine spacewalk, disaster strikes. The shuttle is destroyed, leaving Stone and Kowalski 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.
