Gravity trailer delivers fast paced excitement

Gravity.jpgThe trailer for Alfonso Cuarón's Gravity has arrived and it's surprisingly fast paced and action packed. I have to admit that the first thing that hit me was "Is that how fast things really are in space?".

The film leads with Sandra Bullock and stars George Clooney and was co-written by Alfonso Cuarón and his half-brother Jonás Cuarón, and tells of astronauts stranded in space after a terrifying accident outside a space station.

In the trailer we see parts of that accident and it looks fast paced and much more dramatic than it would seem to be in space itself. Objects such as space stations and people are travelling at such a speed to orbit Earth and there's nothing really to give people a visual reference of relative speed. Perhaps that's why when debris hits the station it does look so dramatic and fast.

The trailer does look like it's going to be exciting to begin with and then leave us all stranded. I think it's going to be a real challenge to get across that feeling of loneliness, isolation and sheer expanse of nothingness up there, but I'm sure Alsonso Cuarón will pull it off.

Here's the trailer through TrailerAddict for Gravity:

Looks impressive, but will the post-action sequence be as strong?
