Very Brief First Glimpse of 'Gravity' Footage from ET Promo Video
"No!" Like with the first Ender's Game tease before this, yet another highly anticipated sci-fi first footage tease that we can't resist posting. Entertainment Tonight (the worst!) is set to debut the first teaser trailer for Alfonso Cuarón's Gravity on Thursday later this week (now available for viewing here) and to tease the reveal, they've launched a 15-second promo video. It features barely 10 seconds of actual Gravity footage, with a few shots of Sandra Bullock and George Clooney. Considering we've been waiting many years for this very moment, for the official first footage, it's worth sharing and taking a quick look at below.
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 his it scheduled to hit theaters on October 4th later this year. Watch the first teaser trailer.
