New GRAVITY Trailer Features More Footage and Character Background from Sandra Bullock

     September 4, 2013


There’s been plenty of positive buzz surrounding Alfonso Cuarón’s Gravity lately, whether it was out of the Venice Film Festival or the mouth of James Cameron.  This new trailer shows why.  In previously-released glimpses, we see the terror that unfolds as astronaut Dr. Ryan Stone (Sandra Bullock) careens off into space after an accident about the International Space Station.  Her only lifelines are Matt Kowalsky (George Clooney) and her own ability to keep her wits.  This latest cut gives an extended look at the relationship between the two scientists as well as some more background on Stone and some truly sensational space-based effects.  Hit the jump to watch the new trailer.  Gravity opens October 4th.

Watch the new trailer for Gravity below:

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.

    Whoa! That was intense! Even more so than the other trailers, and I think they’ve all be pretty good. Cannot wait for this film!

  • Mixed Race rich kid NYC

    I guess that’s an imax 3d kind of a movie

  • rhizomeman

    I’m sorry, I don’t get it. Who thinks this sounds like a realistically trained astronaut? Bullock’s character sounds ridiculous. And I LOVE sci-fi.

    • Starchild

      She is a new astronaut. It is her 1st space walk. So yes, it’s very believable for her reactions.

      • rhizomeman

        Nope. Astronauts are all trained for many different disaster scenarios – both new and veterans. She would not have been allowed in space without being able to pass the disaster/stress tests (way to risky). Again, totally unrealistic.

      • Jason Richards

        It’s a movie, man. Lighten up.

      • rhizomeman

        It pisses me off because I was really looking forward to this! Now, it all just looks and sounds so silly. I hope I am proven wrong when I see it – I am willing to give it a chance.

      • starchild

        You haven’t seen this movie yet. And yea, I’m sure there have been many soooo many scenarios where you have your space station literally destroyed. It’s literally impossible to recreate a “disaster/stress test” similar to what she is going through. Also during those “stress/disaster test”, a person knows that they are coming out alive, where as in space, you can literally you can die at any minute if something goes terribly wrong.
        And by the way, obviously in the trailer she regains her composer. I don’t think she will be freaking out during the entire movie. So again her 1st initial reactions to the whole situation seems verryy realistic to me.

        But anyways I think this will be an awesome movie.

      • Guest

        You have no idea what you are talking about – astronauts are ALL prepared for the possibility of death. Do some research on NASA history and the things that astronauts must go through before entering space.

      • Mark

        they couldn’t prepare for the disaster that hits the shuttle.

      • GonSmithe

        It’s. A. Movie. It isn’t real. It’s not realistic. It’s not a documentary. They are actors. Unrealistic things happen because they are more entertaining.

        You’ll have much more enjoyment out of life when you stop trying to apply real ideals to something that isn’t real.

    • Jeremy D

      Not saying I agree, but Bullock’s relentless “Ah!” “Uh!” “Eh!” throughout the ENTIRE trailer is a total turn off for me. Granted it makes sense (to me) because there are no other sounds in space aside from her voice, but it is just annoying. Regardless, I am excited for the movie!

  • Chachi

    WOW! Second only to the Man of Steel for trailer of the year.

  • Aditya Nugraha

    That’s it. i watch this trailer one time. and i will not watching any promo till 4thOct!!

  • Baby Jean

    God (o_O)

  • davey

    Could go either way. Hopefully the movie will have a lot less of Sandra Bullock’s rough sex noisemaking than the trailer.

    • Jeremy D

      Completely agree!

  • Joseph M

    What happens after the whole shuttle disaster sequence (that the trailers rely on so much)? Is it both characters floating through space getting to know each other, or is there another event of some sort?

    • goop

      Here’s the latter half of the synopsis, beyond that I think going into the movie with the details we already have is what makes that first viewing experience so exciting. For a movie like this anyway.

      “… 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.”
