Trailer: “Gravity” starring George Clooney and Sandra Bullock

Oh jeez, this jump-started my “slow coffee” wake-up. The movie trailer is not intended for viewing during a quiet morning in bed. I love both actors, but I don’t know how I could get through this movie. I think it would scare me to death. Too many issues with being abandoned or trapped… (heart still pounding a bit…)

“Gravity” – a heart-pounding thriller that pulls you into the infinite and unforgiving realm of deep space.

Directed by Alfonso Cuarón and starring Sandra Bullock and George Clooney.

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.

Opening 18th October, 2013.
