It sucks to be Sandra Bullock and George Clooney in Alfonso Cuarón’s “Gravity”, a film that’s getting a ton of great reviews. It looks intense as hell, but then again, anything higher than my car roof gives me the willies, so you can imagine how scary it is for me to see Sandy Bullock spinning around in space with the planet Earth in the background. Heart attack, here I come!
Anyhoo. Check out 24 images from the upcoming movie. Houston, we have issues.
Bullock plays Dr. Ryan Stone, a brilliant engineer on her first shuttle mission, with veteran astronaut Matt Kowalski (Clooney). But on a seemingly routine spacewalk, disaster strikes. The shuttle is destroyed, leaving Stone and Kowalski 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 Sandra Bullock and George Clooney, and spinning out of control this October 4th.
