I’m so excited that Warner Bros. is doing a panel for Gravity at Comic-Con.  It’s a rare movie that can play at both a fan convention and open the Venice Film Festival.  So far, we’ve only gotten a teaser trailer for the movie, which stars Sandra Bullock as a medical engineer who becomes stranded in outer space with a veteran astronaut (George Clooney) when their shuttle is destroyed.  Today, a new image has been released of Bullock in the “zero-gravity” environment.  Cuarón reportedly took five years to get the zero-gravity effects just right, and according to USA Today, “It required numerous processes to show the floating, from elaborate wire work to encasing Bullock in a specially constructed 9-foot cube. And that was before the computer graphics were added.”  As for the story, Cuarón says “She’s confronted with the idea that Earth is so far away. She can see the whole Earth and she doesn’t belong to it,” says Cuarón. “What is really scary for people is being lost or alone in the immensity of the void.”

Hit the jump to check out the new image.  Gravity opens in 3D on October 4th.

Here’s the synopsis for Gravity:

Sandra Bullock plays Dr. Ryan Stone, a brilliant medical engineer on her first shuttle mission, with veteran astronaut Matt Kowalsky (George 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.
