Director James Cameron (“Aliens,” “Terminator 2,” “Avatar”) recently sat down with Variety and talked about how much he loved Alfonso Cuaron’s newest film, “Gravity,” in which he called it the “Best space film ever,” on-top of other nice things like:
I was stunned, absolutely floored. I think it’s the best space photography ever done, I think it’s the best space film ever done, and it’s the movie I’ve been hungry to see for an awful long time. What is interesting is the human dimension. Alfonso and Sandra working together to create an absolutely seamless portrayal of a woman fighting for her life in zero gravity.
James Cameron, who’s directed many great space films himself, praising over Alfonso Cuaron’s “Gravity” really excites me.
Today, Warner Bros. Pictures released an official main trailer for “Gravity,” which I’m pretty sure I had a panic attack just watching it. Check it out for yourself:
Dr. Ryan Stone (Sandra Bullock) is a brilliant medical engineer on her first shuttle mission, with veteran astronaut Matt Kowalsky (George Clooney) in command of his last flight before retiring. 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.
“Gravity,” which was co-written and directed by Alfonso Cuaron, hit theaters October 6th, 2013, and stars Sandra Bullock and George Clooney.
