First footage from Alfonso Cuaron's Gravity with Sandra Bullock and George Clooney: full trailer on Thursday!

05.08.2013

Gravity

It's been seven years since Alfonso Cuaron directed CHILDREN OF MEN and I've been impatiently waiting for something, ANYTHING to be released for GRAVITY. There hasn't been many details about the director's upcoming science-fiction film besides a basic synopsis, a rumor that there's a seventeen minute uninterrupted opening shot and that the movie in general will contain some very impressive visuals. 

Even though there's just seconds of footage from GRAVITY in this tease from ET it was enough for me to get pretty excited to see more from this film ASAP. Good news is we won't have to wait long: a full trailer should be released sometime tomorrow. There's literally seconds of footage so maybe I shouldn't get too pumped up. But GRAVITY looks looks like it could be a fantastic "smart" science-fiction film, and with a decent budget of $80 million and Cuaron helming the flick I can't help but NOT be excited for this movie. Take a look:

Synopsis:

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.

GRAVITY is in theaters on October 4th, 2013. I have a feeling this sucker is going to look gorgeous in IMAX.

I'd prob have to say the opening shot from "Serenity" establishing all the characters ("Everything's shiny, Cap'n. Not to fret") & the ship itself. Well, technically 2 shots melded together.

Allllllllllllllllllright!

Okay, I'll admit it, I really enjoyed Children of Men, but I personally thought it was a little over-praised. It was a very good science fiction film, but not one of the all-time greats in my book, however I am looking all kinds of forward to this one.

As for the extra tidbit: Whatever else you say about the film, the opening sequence for Watchmen (both the opening scene with the Comedian and the credits sequence that follows) is one of the all-time greats.

This movie, as i recall had a lot of trouble. Didn't a lot of stars pass on this one? Wasn't Julia Roberts attached to it at one time? This one I had heard about years ago going through development hell and all that.

I don't necessarily think it's an issue of quality, however. I think it could have something to do with the fact that the movie is just two actors floating through space and it seemed like studios weren't willing to sink a lot of money into it (because it couldn't be turned into a franchise, I'm sure). A constantly changing schedule will cause actors to come and go.

My most anticipated of the year.

I've literally been impatiently waiting for ANYTHING related to this film. Knowing that Cuaron grew up obsessed with astronomy, were all in a for a blast with this film. Plus, for some reason Clooney just goes well with space, loved Soderbergh's Solaris. Hankering for a viewing of that again.

Can't wait!!

I've been looking forward to this since it was first announced. I'm very curious.

TIDBIT: I'm 100% with you on Way of the Gun (obviously).

meh

This just doesn't appeal to me.
Not a fan of either apart from sandys work in the early 90s.

Teasers for teasers aside, I'm very curious as to what's in store with this film. From the tiny glimpse we've had, it certainly looks like well-made high-concept science fiction, and I hope it turns out as such. Cuaron is one of those directors who has a vivid imagination and a Cuaron movie set in space...the possibilities are rather thrilling.

Hell yeah!

This is the film I am looking forward to the most this year. It will sadly only make back its budget or a little more since it will be intelligent and not dumbed down. Cauron is going to blow us away with the techniques in this film I feel.
