Raise your hand if you've ever been in space. Anyone? Anyone? Neither have I. And therefore I submit that the newest trailer / clip for Alfonso Cuaron's Gravity is firmly detached from any reality that I have ever known.
So, yes, there is something decidedly unearthly and unreal about this footage, yet my heart rate increases and my blood pressure rises when I watch it, and I dearly hope that Cuaron delivers on the promise that we've seen in the promotional material so far.
George Clooney and Sandra Bullock star. The movie will debut at the Venice Film Festival and then screen at the Toronto fest before opening in theaters on October 4.
