So just a day ago we were blessed with the first very brief footage from Gravity, the new sci-fi from director Alfonso Cuaron (Children of Men). We have also been promised that the proper trailer will land later today, so make sure you check back here to see it!
However, as the promotional campaign kicks into gear, what we have for you here is the first poster for the epic sci-fi, and it is quite something. In harsh blue, white and black, the image features an astronaut in some serious trouble in space, and with what appears to be no means of surviving. Check out the full poster at the bottom of this post.
Gravity opens in the UK on 18th October, and is set to be one of the biggest sci-fi events of the year. The film is rumoured to have an unbroken 17 minute opening sequence!
Written and directed by Alfonso Cuaron and co-written by Jonas Cuaron, Gravity stars Sandra Bullock and George Clooney, with Basher Savage and Eric Michels providing the voices of the Space Station Captain and NASA.
Sandra Bullock plays Dr. Ryan Stone, a brilliant medical engineer on her first shuttle mission, with veteran astronaut Matt Kowalsky (George 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.
