After years of waiting, the first footage from Alfonso Cuaron’s first film since “Children of Men,” “Gravity,” is now online. In a teaser for the full trailer, which drops tomorrow, Sandra Bullock and George Clooney face outer space peril when their shuttle is destroyed.
Even in the brief clip, you can already see the impressive effects work that has taken a long time to perfect.
Check out the teaser for “Gravity” after the jump!
Dr. Ryan Stone (Sandra Bullock) is a brilliant medical engineer on her first shuttle mission, with veteran astronaut Matt Kowalsky (George 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.
Gravity opens on October 4th.
