If you're not excited for Alfonso Cuaron's next film, Gravity, yet, listen up: This post is for all of you. A new boatload of promotional material has just been released for the flick, including a ton of new stills and photos, as well as a brand new 30-second TV spot that is somehow just as compelling as the one-and-a-half-minute trailer was earlier this year.
The film, if you're not familiar, stars Sandra Bullock and George Clooney as two astronauts whose mission is thrown off course when debris from a Russian space station hits their shuttle Explorer, mostly destroying it. Their means of communication from Earth are effectively cut off in the crash, leaving them with a limited amount of oxygen — and only each other — to survive.
It's only premiered at the Venice Film Festival and the Telluride Film Festival so far, but it's already receiving rave reviews (it currently holds a 94 percent rating on Rotten Tomatoes) and even Oscar buzz.
In the new promo, we see the initial collision of the debris with the shuttle Explorer, and Bullock's character's insane struggle to survive after being literally detached from her space shuttle and sent flying into open space. You can check out the promo below, and head on over to Indiewire to check out about twenty new photos from the film.
Gravity will open everywhere on Oct. 4.
