I have two must-see movies at this year’s Toronto International Film Festival, and one of them is Alfonso Cuaron‘s Gravity (the other is 12 Years a Slave). The film tells the story of Dr. Ryan Stone (Sandra Bullock), a brilliant medical engineer on her first shuttle mission, with veteran astronaut Matt Kowalsky (George Clooney). When disaster strikes a seemingly routine spacewalk, they only have each other. The trailers have been chilling, and the new images and posters continue to convey that sense of dread and desperation. TIFF can’t get here soon enough.
Hit the jump to check out the posters and images. Gravity opens in 3D on October 4th.

Here’s the official 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.
