New Image of Sandra Bullock in Alfonso Cuarón’s GRAVITY

     July 8, 2013


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.

    This film will be golden! As for the picture well….Bullock is so fine!

    Wtf would Cuaron, who’s brilliant, pick Sandra Bullock? Any of the other choices would have been better. Sandra Bullock is the blandest actress in Hollywood.

      While I mostly agree, I’m still holding out hope that she’ll surprise us.

    • Scullibundo

      If James Cameron can pull an awesome performance out of Tom Arnold, Cuaron can pull a great performance out of Bullock.

        Best Actress Oscar winner Sandra Bullock? Just thought I’d remind everyone of that fact.

      • Scullibundo

        Are we now using Academy Awards as benchmarks of quality?Don’t get me wrong, I like Sandra Bullock. But if her performance in The Blind Side is the bar, then we’d better hope Cuaron raises it considerably.

      • GrimReaper07

        A dull performance from a terrible movie. Oscars don’t mean anything.

      • JayF

        That’s your opinion. One of billions out there.

      • GrimReaper07

        First time I’ve heard of anyone defending The Blind Side.

      • JayF

        You mustn’t read much.

      Well, to be fair, it was pretty much the studio imposing its choice. The lead was originally going to be played by Natalie Portman, but she got pregnant.

    I am a huge fan of Y Tu Mama Tambien and Children Of Men was a pretty cool movie too and it would have been an even better movie if they had gotten a more talented actor in the lead. Sorry Clive, but your performance was lame. I hope this does not happen again with this one, Bullock is not a bad actress esp when she works with great directors, but Clooney is just underwhelming in EVERY movie. Why couldn’t they get someone more interesting after RDJ dropped out.

    It took him 5 years to get the gravity right? Bullshit. That sounds like some studio hype. Expect straight to video with this one.
