If you’re looking for pure thrills, you might not have to look any further than director Alfonso Cuarón’s “Gravity”. After releasing an exhilarating trailer titled “Detached” for the movie, the studio has now released a second trailer called “Drifting”, featuring Sandra Bullock detached from her buddy George Clooney and floating in space by her little lonesome. I’m frankly not sure how the entire movie will work if it’s just Bullock floating in space, but I’ll be damn if I’m not incredibly intrigued to find out how Cuarón pulls it off.
Check out the new trailer, and the previously released trailer “Detached” below.
Bullock plays Dr. Ryan Stone, a brilliant medical engineer on her first shuttle mission, with veteran astronaut Matt Kowalsky (Clooney) in command of his last flight before retiring. 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.
Starring Bullock and Clooney, and drifting this October 4, 2013.
