Sandra Bullock Worried on Her Poster for Alfonso Cuaron's 'Gravity'

Just after yesterday's spotlight on George Clooney with his own poster for the sci-fi drama Gravity, this time Sandra Bullock gets the same treatment, but she looks a little more concerned. We're not surprised since it's her character who gets rocketed into space when a mission goes sour, and she's left floating in the vastness of space. Again, the film has been getting rave reviews out of the Venice Film Festival this week where both stars appeared, and each of their performances is getting just as much buzz as the film, which is said to be marvelously shot. It's one of our most anticipated films of the fall, and we just can't wait to see it.
Here's the new poster for Alfonso Cuaron's Gravity from Warner Bros. Pictures:
Dr. Stone (Bullock) is a brilliant medical engineer on her first shuttle mission with veteran astronaut Matt Kowalsky (Clooney). 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've lost any link to Earth... and any chance for rescue.
Gravity is directed by visionary Mexican filmmaker Alfonso Cuarón, of Great Expectations, Y Tu Mamá También, Harry Potter and the Prisoner of Azkaban and Children of Men previously. The screenplay was written by Alfonso Cuarón and his son Jonás Cuarón. Warner Bros delayed Gravity from its initial release in 2012 and now has it scheduled to hit theaters in IMAX and 3D on October 4th this fall. See the first trailer.
