After dropping its first poster the other day, Warner Bros. has released a teaser trailer for Gravity starring George Clooney and Sandra Bullock.
Initial impressions on the Alfonso Cuarón-directed film is that it looks gorgeous. A light piano and violin melody sets the scene 372 miles above Earth.
“Beautiful, don’t you think?” Clooney says to Bullock. But after an accident while working on a space station, the pair find themselves adrift with little chance of getting home. The movie is rumoured to have an opening shot that runs close to 20 minutes with no edits (something I’m totally crazy about seeing).
In an interview with USA Today, Clooney described the film as a “very odd film, really. Two people in space. No monsters. It’s more like 2001 than an action film.”
I loved Clooney’s Solaris, which was a space thriller that also doubled as a love story, so this looks like it could be right up my alley.
I’m not sure about the pair getting a happy ending, though.
Gravity was one of last year’s most anticipated films before its November release date was swapped for fall 2013. It will now be released on October 4.
