I had a daughter. A little girl with brown hair. Tell her that I’m not quitting. So says Sandra Bullock while floating in space in the new trailer for Gravity. It’s director Alfonso Cuarón’s first feature film since 2006’s Children Of Men, and the beautiful long shots have totally sold me on this.
The first 17 or so minutes of Gravity are one unbroken shot, which may be why other directors are praising it. Guillermo Del Toro said it’s five years ahead of its time. Earlier this week, James Cameron also lauded it in a Variety interview. “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,” Cameron said.
The new trailer below includes some footage from previous clips, but it also gives us more backstory on Bullock’s character and extra scenes of her and George Clooney trying to save themselves. Warner has made the new trailer available in 2K HD. We recommend checking this out in the highest resolution. We also recommend bringing a change of pants to the theater.
