Yep, if you thought yesterdays two minute trailer for Alfonso Cuaron’s Gravity was intense enough, wait until you see this new trailer titled “Drifting”.
By now you should know that the film see’s Sandra Bullock’s astronaut Dr Ryan Stone knocked off her ship and sent drifting into space, a terrifying idea if ever there was one. However, visionary director Cuaron (Children of Men) films Bullock as the drifts helplessly through space desperate to find help, and this new trailer shows her as she has just come away from the spaceship, leaving George Clooney’s Matt Kowalsky onboard to somehow try and save her.
If you have nerves of steel, then check out the new trailer below, but try not to think about it too much, the idea is absolutely horrifying!
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.
