Thoughts: As is proven by my enthusiastic reviews for Prometheus and Oblivion, I love a good space flick so I’ve had Gravity on my radar for some time. Originally meant to star Angelina Jolie and Robert Downey Jr., director Alfonso Cuarón’s 3D space thriller signed Oscar winners Sandra Bullock (Extremely Loud and Incredibly Close) and George Clooney (The Descendants) to suit up in their place. Though this type of film is arguably outside Bullock’s comfort zone, I’m anticipating good things from her when paired with Clooney. This will be a curious film for most people with only the two leads on screen for the entire film – but this trailer is an impressive whetting of our whistle until we can see the finished product in October.
