Alfonso Cuaron impressed many with the impressive tracking shots in Children Of Men. With Gravity he’s promised to take that even further. Indeed he expressed a little frustration with the first trailer for the movie, which had quick cuts he felt didn’t really represent the movie.
Now a new trailer and clip have emerged that really show us the amazing single-shot philosophy. The trailer shows the moment when astronauts Sandra Bullock and George Clooney’s spacewalk goes terribly wrong. Their shuttle is hit by debris from a satellite the Russians have been trying to decommission, which sends Bullock flying off into space – and it’s all done with no cuts whatsoever.
The clip meanwhile is from after that moment, when Bullock is drifting through space, completely untethered and apparently with no way home. It certainly suggest this is going to be one to watch when it’s released this October.
