Remarkable and frightening trailer lands for Alfonso Cuaron’s sci-fi thriller ‘Gravity’




As expected, Warner Brothers have released the first trailer for Alfonso Cuaron’s stunning looking sci-fi, Gravity. The film was due for release last year, put was pulled so that more time could be spent on the special effects, and judging by the truly astonishing trailer below, it was well worth putting the film back.

Cuaron directed the gobsmackingly brilliant Children of Men, so we already know that he is capable of jawdropping scenes in his films, and Gravity appears to be no different. The trailer below is one of the best trailers I have seen do far this year, and it totally captures the feeling of panic which the films story is based on.

Sandra Bullock is rumoured to be the main focus of the film, and most of the screentime will be dedicated to the brilliant actress who, judging by the trailer, ends up literally drifting into space. A very frightening thought indeed, and made all the more real by the stunning trailer. See for yourself below.

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.

A keen enthusiast and collector of all horror and extreme films. I can be picky as i like quality in my horror. This doesn't necessarily mean it has to be a classic, but as long as it has something to impress me then i'm a fan. I watch films by the rule that if it doesn't bring out some kind of emotive response then it aint worth watching.
