Warner Bros. Finally Tells General Audiences That ‘Gravity’ Stars George Clooney and Sandra Bullock…

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.

    Not sure how gripping this tale can be – 2 people in space with lack of survival? Brings memories from “open water” only instead of water, we have space. Having said that, I am a HUGE fan of Alfonzo since I witnessed how incredible “Children of Men” was – one of the best films ever. However, I would love to see proper acting face off with Bullock, whom I love her and Clooney. Del Toro said that he saw crazy things in the set. I am looking forward for this

      doomas10,

      “Not sure how gripping this tale can be – 2 people in space with lack of survival? Brings memories from “open water” only instead of water, we have space.”

      I AGREE 100%! it would be one thing if the movie starred 2 hugely charismatic, interesting, fascinating, “I COULD ENJOY WATCHING ______(fill in your favorite actor/actress) READ THE PHONE BOOK!” actors/actresses but, (no offense to fans of Bullock or Clooney) i find both leads to be extremely bland/boring (in past films).

      just an example, i could watch Jessica Lange, Frances Conroy (AMERICAN HORROR STORY), Mireille Enos (THE KILLING, WORLD WAR Z), Vera Farmiga, etc, doing nothing all day long and still be loving it/fascinated by them. nearly every movie/show i’ve seen with Bullock or Clooney i’ve never found them engaging or interesting.

      but i’ll keep an open mind! maybe they will be great in this movie! :)

    I saw the trailer for this during Pacific Rim. It’s going to be in 3D and I can tell, just from the way of the camera motion in the trailer, that this will be an infamous “puker” movie ala Cloverfield. That makes me hope it goes to the theatre in town that I DON’T work at. Hahahaa.
