One of the coolest things about the recent hype for Alfonso Cuaron’s sci-fi thriller Gravity, opening October 4 via Warner Bros., is that everyone’s chattering about the film without George Clooney and Sandra Bullock’s names being dropped. The trailers all speak for themselves, promising a terrifying journey on the edge of Earth’s atmosphere.
Now that everyone already wants to see the film, Warners has begun inserting the film’s stars into the fold, starting with a character banner for George Clooney. Sandra Bullock
is soon to follow has also been added!
The heart-pounding thriller is said to pull 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.
