Alfonso Cuaron both likes, and dislikes, the teaser trailer for his upcoming film Gravity. He told Hall H at Comic-Con a trailer full of explosions doesn’t really tell the true story of the movie. He said the movie is a very intense, emotional journey that puts the viewer in an immersive experience. Hopefully, that experience should make them feel like they’re floating in space. Plus, there’s no sound in space, so you can’t hear any explosions.
To illustrate, he showed a several minute long, long take featuring stars George Clooney and Sandra Bullock at the moment where they realize this trip into space is not going to go well. The shot sweeps all over their ship. Down, around, upside down, all leading up to a rogue, debris field that’ll crash with the astronauts and send Bullock’s character off into space. To say the shot was intense and scary would be an understatement.

Saturday is traditionally the biggest day at San Diego Comic-Con and 2013 is no different. Four of the biggest studios will be bringing their films to Hall H. Warner Bros. has Godzilla, Seventh Son, 300: Rise of an Empire, Gravity and The Lego Movie (but no mention of future DC films), Lionsgate has I Frankenstein and The Hunger Games: Catching Fire, Marvel Studios brings Thor: The Dark World and Captain America: The Winter Soldier and 20th Century Fox is bringing…something. It’s listed at “To Be Determined” on the schedule but you’d bet it’s The Wolverine, Percy Jackson: Sea of Monsters and maybe, hopefully, X-Men: Days of Future Past?
After the jump, check out the full schedule and some other highlights including The Sandman, The Simpsons, Kevin Smith, Hellboy and more. Read More »
Among film fans, few directors are as revered as Alfonso Cuarón. Children of Men, Y Tu Mamá También, A Little Princess; these are new classics that never found the mainstream audience they deserved.
For the casual moviegoer, few stars are more likable than Sandra Bullock and George Clooney. Oscar-winners both, each has proved time and again they’re major box-office stars. So what happens when you combine their mainstream Hollywood clout with a true auteur aesthetic? You’re about to find out.
The first trailer for their collaboration, Gravity, has just been released. Co-written and directed by Cuarón, it stars Clooney and Bullock as two astronauts who go into space but are detached from their ship, forced to survive all alone in the infinite darkness. The potential Oscar-contender is set for release October 19 in 2D, 3D and 3D IMAX. Finally, after years of delays and anticipation, you can see footage from it now. Read More »
After years of anticipation, tomorrow we’ll get our first good look at Sandra Bullock and George Clooney in Alfonso Cuarón‘s space drama Gravity. A few seconds of footage hit the net on Tuesday and now, in anticipation of the trailer, the first poster for the film is out. It gives just a hint of the terror to come for two astronauts who are stranded in space when they’re separated from their ship. It opens in 2D, 3D, and IMAX 3D on October 18. Read More »
We’ve waited what feels like an age to see anything at all from Alfonso Cuaron’s new film Gravity. So we’ll indulge Entertainment Tonight one of their lousy fast montages that mar footage from the film with graphics and voiceover. The clip below has the first Gravity footage that most people have had a chance to see, and while we’ll get a much better look at the film when the trailer drops this Thursday, this is a good little taste.
The film features Sandra Bullock as an engineer on her first trip into space who is put in terrible danger during a routine spacewalk. With her is a veteran astronaut played by George Clooney, who seems just a bit more zen about the whole experience than she is. Read More »
Okay, so I know you’ve already seen the trailer for Zack Snyder‘s Man of Steel. Snyder was in Las Vegas at CinemaCon to premiere the trailer, which was exactly timed with when the video went online.
The Warner Bros presentation this year was kind of underwhelming, it may have something to do with all the bad buzz they got last year with their preview of early 48fps Hobbit footage. Whatever the reason, they kept most of their presentation safe, sticking mostly to trailers or previously cut footage (for instance the Pacific Rim reel already played at WonderCon). The Man of Steel trailer was very impressive, and they also screened the first trailer (or was it a teaser trailer?) for Alfanso Cuaron‘s Gravity, which was breathtaking. I’m not sure when Warner Bros will be officially releasing this trailer, maybe on Oblivion?
We recorded a video blog giving quick reactions to both of these trailer, and failed in our attempt to discuss them in less time than the source trailers themselves. Watch the video now embedded after the jump.

The thing about these most-anticipated lists is that they can’t help but be woefully underinformed. While a few of the earlier 2013 releases have already revealed trailers or received film festival attention, others haven’t unveiled so much as an official still. So I’m going mostly by instinct, and as a result I will doubtlessly cringe at some of my misguided predictions when I look back on this list a year from now.
But that’s all part of the fun, of course. What’s exciting about a new year of movies isn’t any one specific title, but the hundreds of new opportunities it offers to be moved, thrilled, delighted, or surprised. That said, there are a few movies I’m especially eager to get to, and you can read my picks for 2013 after the jump.
