The newest trailer from Alfonso Cuarón (Children of Men, Harry Potter and the Prisoner of Azkaban) for his latest project Gravity has just been released and it's quintessential trailer art.
Boasting a basically two person cast of George Clooney and Sandra Bullock (in a role many critics are already saying will bring her another Oscar nom), director James Cameron has already called the film the best space movie ever made. I think you'll agree that the special effects appear to come closer than anything before in conveying a realistically believable sense of weightlessness. A neat trick after a generation of moviegoers has grown up with watching real space walks for decades on TV.
The trailer is neatly introduced, wonderfully filmed and edited with just enough of a feeling of vertigo to make the peril palpable. Lets just hope no one's planning to build a theme park thrill ride based on these scenes.
See for yourself and thanks for continuing to drop in on the blog. Here's the latest trailer for Gravity. (For a look at Gravity's earlier teaser trailer click here.)
