The Art of the Trailer: the new Gravity trailer.

Hey, Moviedozer's still on hiatus while I'm busy putting together enough written pages to call the stack a book. But there's a brand new trailer that is just too good to pass up for a post.

The newest trailer from Alfonso CuarĂ³n (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.)

Thanks to Warner Bros. Pictures for poster art and trailer access.
