Houston, we have one heckuva problem.
In a nutshell, George Clooney stars in the film as a seasoned veteran of space wanderings who's guiding Sandra Bullock's medical engineer character on a routine little zero grav trek outside the ship while ooh-ing and ahh-ing at the wonderments of wonder ... until his upcoming retirement soiree gets cancelled indefinitely once a pile of debris knocks the pair of space stragglers loose from their ships. All the shudders.
So, yeah, spoiler alert: When it looks like there's a person floating off into nothingness there near the end of the teaser, that's exactly what's happening. Tack on the facts that they've lost radio contact with Earth and have a limited oxygen supply, and you have got yourself a pretty gnarly little nightmare.
We pegged this one as an early Oscar contender over a year ago, 'cause duh. Now we're thinkin' it'll be a box office runaway too. 'Cause who can resist watching this terrifying business unfold in 3D?
For those counting, according to our movie math so far, "Moon" + "Open Water" - "Jaws" = "Gravity."
The film will make a (safe) landing into U.S. theaters on Oct. 4.
