When we ran a video of the full Gravity panel from Comic Con, I lamented that for the time being, most people would have to digest the conversation without having the context provided by the long clip shown off in Hall H.
Things have changed. Warner Bros. has released what amounts to a new trailer, comprised of nearly two minutes of that footage, sans cuts. It is intense, scary, and demonstrates what looks like insanel accomplishment on a technical level. As astronauts played by George Clooney and Sandra Bullock work during a spacewalk, debris from a destroyed satellite comes hurtling toward them, and their routine mission turns deadly. Check it out below.
Updated: Warner Bros. has released a second single-shot “trailer” for Gravity, added below. We’ve also added a third clip/trailer, which features more conventional editing but is no less impressive.
The Comic Con footage started quite a bit earlier than this clip does, but here you’ll see the most intense stuff. It might not be quite the same without the build-up, which is quite good, but this is still great to see, and probably tells you a lot more about the movie than the teaser trailer did. And while calling this “single shot” isn’t the same as talking about long in-camera shots as practiced by many directors in the past, there’s no question that this is an achievement of its own sort.
Here the second trailer released by Warner Bros:
Here’s the third trailer:
After premiering at Venice and showing at TIFF, Gravity opens on October 4.
GRAVITY, directed by Oscar® nominee Alfonso Cuaron, stars Oscar® winners Sandra Bullock and George Clooney in a heart-pounding thriller that pulls you into the infinite and unforgiving realm of deep space. Bullock plays Dr. Ryan Stone, a brilliant medical engineer on her first shuttle mission, with veteran astronaut Matt Kowalsky (Clooney). 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.
