Goodbye, Astronaut Dreams. Hello, Nightmares: Alfonso Cuaron’s Gravity Gets Another Hair-Raising Trailer



If the final cut of Alfonso Cuarón’s Gravity was sent back in time to be screened for NASA and the Apollo Space Program during the 1960s, I’m pretty sure they would have hit the kill switch on all of their projects.  In this exclusive new trailer, Warner Bros. seems determined to really sell us on how scary this film will be.  Well, I tip my hat to them.  Mission: accomplished.

Ah, but you know, while the film has been heralded as a real terrifying piece of work, a number of critics who’ve seen the film haven’t been shy about the film’s overall greatness.  Justin Chang of Variety stated, “Of the many sights to behold in this white-knuckle space odyssey, a work of great narrative simplicity and visual complexity, it’s [the image of Sandra Bullock  seeking refuge in an abandoned spacecraft savoring a brief respite from her harrowing journey floating around 375 miles above the Earth]that speaks most eloquently to Cuaron’s gifts as a filmmaker: He’s the rare virtuoso capable of steering us through vividly imagined worlds and into deep recesses of human feeling.”

James Cameron has even stated that, “it’s the best space film ever done”.

Sometimes simplicity is key: the film stars Sandra Bullock and George Clooney.  It opens in theatres on October 4th.


Academy Award® winners Sandra Bullock (“The Blind Side,” “The Proposal”) and George Clooney (“Up in the Air,” “Syriana”) star in “Gravity,” a heart-pounding thriller that pulls you into the infinite and unforgiving realm of deep space. The film was directed by Oscar® nominee Alfonso Cuarón (“Children of Men”).
