The New Teaser Trailer For The Sci-Fi Drama, GRAVITY, Wins Today's Internet

There are some directors that I genuinely appreciate, but don't particularly care for their movies. Alfonso Cuarón is one of them. While his critically-acclaimed films Y Tu Mamá También and Children of Men prove him to be an undeniable visionary and a fascinating storyteller, they ultimately fail to resonate with me. His movies, including the critically-acclaimed films

However, I must hand the man props for today's spectacular trailer for his upcoming sci-fi drama co-written by his son Jonás Cuarón and starring Sandra Bullock and George Clooney, GRAVITY. Despite the fact that at its core it tells the familiar story of a routine space mission gone awry, the clip (which clocks it at just under a minute and a half) is filled with so much suspense and authenticity that you don't even want to blink while watching it.

Read more in the official film synopsis (from JoBlo):

Bullock plays Dr. Ryan Stone, a brilliant medical engineer on her first shuttle mission, with veteran astronaut Matt Kowalsky (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.

Sounds great, but the only thing I worry about is whether Clooney or Bullock's general lack of intrigue in their dramatic performances will impede the story. But, then, you can't deny this trailer:

I know, right?! It kinda makes you feel like they released a one-hour clip, huh?

GRAVITY heads to theaters October 4th.

Technically, Alfonso Cuarón looks like he's going to deliver something truly impressive. The trailer is one of the best cut trailers I've seen, really get a sense of suspense from the set up, just wonder if it can be held up for the entire movie.

Damn, this looks pretty damn good. Very intense trailer. If the movie maintains this, should be one to definitely check out. Definitely has my interest piqued.
