The trailer for Alfonso Cuaron’s new movie Gravity has arrived online.
The upcoming sci-fi flick, which has been in development since 2010, stars Sandra Bullock and George Clooney. The movie tells the story of two astronauts who find themselves stranded after a spacewalk goes horribly wrong.
As far as movie previews are concerned, the trailer for Gravity is deeply impressive. The 90-second clip conveys quite a bit in just a short span of time. It’s also apparent that the director’s penchant for sharp visuals and palpable suspense are present in the drama.
Cuaron is already responsible for delivering a handful of memorable motion pictures. He helped usher the Harry Potter universe into adulthood with his 2004 adaptation of Harry Potter and the Prisoner of Azkaban. The tone was drastically different from the previous entries in the series, which gave the franchise a more grown-up feel.
The director followed up this film with the 2006 action-drama Children of Men. Based on the novel by P.D. James, the movie took place in a world where babies are no longer born. One man must fight against unspeakable odds as he attempts to help a pregnant woman find sanctuary.
“It’s a two-hander with only two actors in the whole film. It is a very odd film, really. Two people in space. No monsters. It’s more like ‘2001’ than an action film,” Clooney said during an interview in 2011.
After years of development, the folks at Warner Bros. hope to have the space drama in theaters by October 4. You can check out the clip for the flick embedded below.
