EW previews the October 4 release of Warner Bros. and Alfonso Cuaron’s sci-fi thriller Gravity, which takes us into deep space where chaos ensues.
George Clooney and Sandra Bullock star in the heart-pounding thriller that pulls you into the infinite and unforgiving realm of deep space. “Bullock plays Dr. Ryan Stone, a brilliant medical engineer on her first shuttle mission, with veteran astronaut Matt Kowalsky (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.”
With Gravity, Oscar winner Sandra Bullock returns to the action-thriller subgenre that gave her such an illustrious career.
