Alfonso Cuaron’s Gravity is definitely one of the most intriguing movies of the year, largely as it mainly has just two cast members – Sandra Bullock and George Clooney – will be largely done with extremely long takes and much of the time will be Bullock & Clooney alone in space.
We got the first teaser trailer a few weeks ago, which concentrated on the disaster that strikes as space station, and now USA Today presents the first still image, which sees Sandra having a bit of a float, presumably before everything goes horribly wrong.
Here’s the official synopsis: ‘Academy Award® winners Sandra Bullock (“The Blind Side,” “The Proposal”) and George Clooney (“Up in the Air,” “Syriana”) star in “Gravity,” a heart-pounding thriller that pulls you into the infinite and unforgiving realm of deep space. The film was directed by Oscar® nominee Alfonso Cuarón (“Children of Men”).
‘Bullock plays Dr. Ryan Stone, a brilliant medical engineer on her first shuttle mission, with veteran astronaut Matt Kowalsky (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.’
It’ll be out later this year.
