After years of waiting, the first footage from Alfonso Cuaron’s first film since “Children of Men,” “Gravity,” is now online. In a teaser for the full trailer, which drops tomorrow, Sandra Bullock and George Clooney face outer space peril when their shuttle is destroyed.
Even in the brief clip, you can already see the impressive effects work that has taken a long time to perfect. (MTV)
The Gravity trailer got classified this week. Alberta Film Classification (Canadian classification system) updated their recently classified list with the Gravity rating. The movie will be distributed by Warner Bros. and the trailer got a PG rating with a 1:25 running time. Looking forward to see it!
Thanks Lindsey for the heads up!
Finally some good news regarding ‘Gravity’! The FilmStage has tweeted earlier this month that MPAA ratings has arrived for the film:
Gravity rated PG-13 for intense perilous sequences, some disturbing images and brief strong language.
We are now wondering if a release date is near, since MPAA ratings are only given when the film is nearly complete. The first test screening was back in May and a few days later WB has moved the movie to a vague 2013 release. Maybe now with the MPAA ratings we can have good news!
Gravity, the upcoming thriller starring Sandra Bullock and George Clooney as astronauts stranded at a space station, has been pushed to a 2013 release, studio Warner Bros. announced on Monday.

The expectations are sky-high for Alfonso Cuarón‘s Gravity, the director’s first film since 2006?s Children of Men. In fact, between the A-list cast (Sandra Bullock and George Clooney), its intriguing sci-fi premise, its ambitious long shots, and gushing praise from colleagues like Guillermo del Toro, we have plenty of reason to believe the film could be his most brilliant yet. On the other hand, this wouldn’t be the first time we’ve been dead wrong about a movie this early on.
This week in Pasadena, Gravity had its first test screening, and while the cut was apparently very rough, audiences saw enough to form some strong opinions about it. From here, it sounds like it could be this year’s Tree of Life — gorgeous, innovative, worthy of acclaim, and perhaps a little divisive. Hit the jump to see some reactions.
Our Germain Lussier didn’t actually attend the viewing, but he’s heard some others talking about it:
VERY unfinished but heard it’s visually ambitious, interesting but not world-changing.
The Film Stage‘s Jordan Raup, wasn’t present either, but the reactions he heard were more wholeheartedly positive:
Despite rough FX, hear good things about last night’s Gravity screening. “Masterpiece, phenomenal, visually amazing.” We’ll see in 200 days.
George Clooney and Sandra Bullock are the only actors in their new film, ‘Gravity,’ which appears to be a ‘Major Tom’ style saga.
The pair star alongside one another in sci-fi drama ‘Gravity’ which is directed and co-written by Alfonso Cuaron. The film sees them portray two astronauts working on a space station together – George finds it odd that they don’t have any other co-stars.
George said: “A satellite blows up and space junk causes damage. We go out in space suits, and she and I are tethered together, floating through space.”
“It’s a two-hander with only two actors in the whole film. It is a very odd film, really. Two people in space. No monsters. It’s more like 2001 than an action film.”
The star admitted while he was thrilled to be working alongside Sandra – who he has been friends with for 20 years – he is less than impressed with the movie being shot in 3-D.
George added in an interview with USA Today: “Sandy is the lead. And she is beautiful in it. We have known each for way over 20 years. It’s fun to work with her.”
“It is the first time I’ve been in 3-D and, hopefully, the last time. It’s not near ready yet. They just showed the first cut to the studio.”
Warner Brothers and the IMAX Corporation are planning to continue their successful relationship in 2012 with three more releases in the IMAX format that haven’t been announced yet. They include the Alfonso Cuaron’s outer space thriller Gravity, starring George Clooney and Sandra Bullock. The movie also will be released in 3D.
Gravity is scheduled to hit theaters on November 21, 2012.
I’ve posted a few weeks ago that Warner Bros. was working to get their Oscar hopefuls released in the end of this year, and probably “Extremely Loud…” will be released in December.
So, today the final dates were announced. Stephen Daldry’s “Extremely Loud & Incredibly Close“, the adaptation of the Jonathan Safran Foer novel starring Tom Hanks and Sandra Bullock, will open in select cities on Dec. 25, and go wide Jan. 20.
Alfonso Cuarón’s space thriller Gravity 3D, starring George Clooney and Sandra Bullock, has been set for Nov. 12, 2012.
Sandy is currently in London, shooting her scenes for “Gravity”. The film follows two former astronauts as they attempt to get their lives in order following a space shuttle disaster.
A week ago Sandy was photographed on set with her son and her co-star George Clooney, and yesterday she was spotted wearing a cropped brown wig. Check pictures in the gallery:
