Clooney and Bullock Lost in Space in Terrifying First GRAVITY Teaser

Alfonso Cuarón's Gravity has been a long time coming and today we finally get a glimpse of the film through its first teaser. The film stars George Clooney and Sandra Bullock as astronauts who become stranded in space.

Originally set up years ago at Universal before going into turnaround, the film eventually found a home at Warner Bros. After many big names coming and going, such as Angelina Jolie, Robert Downey Jr., Marion Cotillard and Natalie Portman, Clooney and Bullock were eventually set as the leads in the $80 million project that went into production in London in May 2011.

Two years later and we finally get a look at the film, and boy is it something. Starting off serenely, the tone quickly shifts to terror as, following an accident, the astronauts become lost in space. Claustrophobic and intense, the film looks to be a gripping experience.

Cuarón hasn't made many films but his small and varied body of work demonstrates that he's capable of handling anything. His last film was 2006's Children of Men, one of the most innovative sci-fis of recent memory. Can't wait to catch this when it open October 4!

    Cuarón has always been visually gifted, and this looks very nice.
    Hoping that Cuarón has a story tell also, thanks for the teaser Mr Conran.

    I dont know how that could keep me interested for 190minutes or more. I assume once everything is done exploding it is going to suck. Open Water in space.

    I love Cuaron, and I love this concept. I just hope Bullock is equal to the material (I have serious doubts).

  • Joe Foolio

    I also have doubts concerning Bullock, but by the looks of the trailer all she has to do in the movie is sound desperate and whinny so she should be good to go. hah!

  • Cuaron? Sold!

    Looks good. What is the piece of music at the beginning? I feel like I've heard so many times before, but I can't remember what it is or where I've heard it.

    It's Arvo Part's Spiegel im Spiegel, beautiful piece.

    Thanks, guys! After googling it I realized that the reason I've heard it so much is because I've watched Gerry about 10 times.
