It’s a rare occurrence for me to get excited for a big budget movie these days. With a few exceptions of course, 2013 hasn’t lived up to the hype created by it’s trailers that oversell the product. However the trailer for Gravity, the new film from Mexican director Alfonso Cuaron, seems promising. With the underrated Children Of Men from 2006 and the 2004 film Harry Potter and The Prisoner of Azkaban in his credits, Cuaron is one of those directors that carefully chooses his films.
In Gravity, the premise is simple. Two astronauts are caught in a shower of debris that cripples their shuttle and threatens their lives. Sandra Bullock and George Clooney stars as the only two characters in the film. Watch the newest trailers here for “Drifting” and here for “Detached”. After a year of delay and 3d post production conversion, Gravity with land in theaters on October 4 in IMAX 3D and other large format 3D theaters.
