Life in space is impossible in this seriously tense new trailer for GRAVITY

2 min read


Oh look, it’s Kervyn once again gushing like a 12-year old girl at a Justin Bieber concert about Alfonso Cuaron’s Gravity. Yes, I know I’ve been talking about this film non-stop lately, but it’s not often that a film I’ve been this excited for since I first heard of it, apparently delivers as amazingly as Gravity appears to be doing. Hell, even James Cameron called it “the best space film ever done”.

And if you check out this stomach churning, testicle clenching new trailer, then it’s hard to argue against that.

Dr. Ryan Stone (Sandra Bullock) is a brilliant medical engineer on her first shuttle mission, with veteran astronaut Matt Kowalsky (George Clooney) in command of his last flight before retiring. 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 have lost any link to Earth…and any chance for rescue. As fear turns to panic, every gulp of air eats away at what little oxygen is left. But the only way home may be to go further out into the terrifying expanse of space.

Holy clenched buttcheeks, Batman! I can’t remember when last a trailer got me on the edge of my seat like that, and according to all reports, the film keeps up that ridiculous tension for a sphincter destroying 93 minutes.

I’m expecting this film to a real serious awards contender in the technical apartment for its utterly amazing cinematography and VFX, and also in the bowels loosening department for about the same reason.

Gravity drops internationally on October 4, 2013, while it hits our shores on October 18, 2013.
