Gravity Trailer: Ground Control to Miss Congeniality

Someone should go get Sandra Bullock?

George Clooney

Alfonso Cuarón knows a thing or two about dramatic single-take shots: his last film, 2006’s Children of Men, was chock-full of haunting unbroken action. And now that he’s making his long-anticipated return, with George Clooney and Sandra Bullock in space-exploration disaster Gravity, it only makes sense that he’ll give us a trailer offering some more of the same. While the first teaser for the movie hopped all around in traditional kinetic trailer style, this new one bores down on the one bit of action, running us through two minutes of straight interstellar catastrophe. Um, someone should go get Bullock? But first, explain why Cuarón held out on us for so long!
