Two new teaser trailers for Alfonso Cuarón’s sci-fi thriller Gravity have emerged online, courtesy of Warner Bros. Pictures. The first trailer is titled ‘Detached’, while the second is titled ‘Drifting’, with the second being somewhat a continuation of the first. The trailers aren’t too different from the teaser that was released back in April, but they do show more footage from the space shuttle disaster.
It’ll be intriguing to see if Cuarón is able to pull of a full length film featuring two people floating in space. The formula worked for Open Water and Buried, being entirely set in the ocean and the trunk of a car, respectively; so I’d imagine a director of Cuarón’s talent will handle this material just fine. Still, it seems very possible that the film will be beautiful to look at it, but perhaps lack substance? We’ll find out.
Trailer one: ‘Detached’:
Trailer two: ‘Drifting’:
Dr. Ryan Stone (Sandra Bullock) is 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 opens on October 4th in 3D, 2D, and IMAX 3D.
