First Footage From Alfonso Cuaron's Gravity

Reputedly one of the most technically and narratively ambitious science fiction films ever attempted, Alfonso Cuaron‘s first narrative feature since Children of Men is the space thriller, Gravity.

We’ll finally be seeing the trailer this Thursday, but in the meantime, Entertainment Tonight have released the first snippets of footage.

Shame that was lo-ish res, on a computer screen, 2D and had some fella talking all over it. These shots were designed to be seen and heard in cinemas.

Here’s the film’s official blurb to put those fragments of zero-G misadventure into context.

[Sandra] Bullock plays Dr. Ryan Stone, a brilliant medical engineer on her first shuttle mission, with veteran astronaut Matt Kowalsky [George 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.

Gravity will be released in the US on October 4th and in the UK two weeks later on October 18th.
