Alfonso Cuaron first came to our attention with the dystopian future film Children of Men. Now he’s got another Sci-Fi movie coming to the big screen, Gravity, starring the man himself, George Clooney. It’s definitely going to be one of the best Sci-Fi date movies for those of us nerds dating the not so nerdy this summer.
The story: Two astronauts (Sandra Bullock and George Clooney) become stranded on a damaged space station with no ability to communicate with Earth. How will they manage to survive? In the trailer we get to see the accident unfold in a breathtakingly beautiful sequence which leaves the two astronauts struggling to survive in space.
The cinematography is incredible, Cuaron is known for his long uninterrupted shots and Gravity is said to have a seventeen minute long opening shot that will blow us all away.
This trailer has me sold on buying a theater ticket. What do you think?
Gravity will hit theaters on October 4, 2013.
