For months now we’ve been hearing about the very long-awaited out of this world film starring George Clooney and Sandra Bullock. For Bullock, Gravity is said to put her back on the map as a serious actress, or at least one that doesn’t star in undercooked romcoms. Now we finally have a 10 second teaser of the hyped up Gravity.
For those that have been following the film, Gravity has been in development for years. For a long time it was just known as “the space film” starring George Clooney and Sandra Bullock. Then we heard news that the film would be shot in 3D and has an extremely heavy hand in special effects. Initially the film was slated for a 2012 release date, but was then pushed back because more work needed to be done on the VFX end of things. However, now it looks like the film is finally ready. With a release date of October 4, we now how visual evidence that this film actually exists.
The clip for Gravity was released by Entertainment Tonight as a promo for their next episode, which is said to show more of the clip. In this minuscule preview we see George Clooney suspended, as Bullock’s body is thrown out of their aircraft.
The official synopsis reads as follows:
“Dr. Ryan Stone (Sandra Bullock) is a brilliant medical engineer on her first shuttle mission, with veteran astronaut Matt Kowalsky (George Clooney). 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.”
The script, which was leaked a few years ago seems to be a light adventure, with its fair share of big thrills. Distributed by Warner Bros. Pictures, Gravity is set to release in 3D and in 2D in select theaters and IMAX on October 4th. It’s a solid release date if George Clooney and Sandra Bullock want a serious shot at Oscar season. So far we don’t know when the film will go wide but we have a feeling WB will want to capitalize on the film, especially given their big name stars and the source material.
