Gravity continues to achieve orbit in Hollywood, capturing top honors for trailer of the year.
The ad for the sci-fi spectacle won Friday night’s Golden Trailer Award, which has been honoring the industry’s best coming attractions since 1999. The Sandra Bullock-George Clooney drama took the Best of Show award, the night’s biggest honor. The trailer, titled “Detached” and featuring a panicked Sandra Bullock drifting into space, also won as best coming attraction for a thriller. – USA Today
The Hollywood Reporter – Bullock is circling to star as trailblazing sales exec Brownie Wise in an untitled project detailing the rise of Tupperware that has The Help director Tate Taylor attached to direct.
David Hoberman and Todd Lieberman of Mandeville Films/TV, whose credits range from The Fighter to The Muppets, are producing.
The producers put together the package over the course of several months and hope to find a home for it soon. The likely first stop would be Disney, where the company has its production deal.
The script, which Taylor wrote, is based on Tupperware Unsealed, the non-fiction book written by Bob Kealing. Taylor has met and discussed the project with Bullock, but although the actress has expressed a desire to do it, she is not formally attached.
Tupperware was originally developed by Earl Silas Tupper but took off in the 1950s when sales exec Wise came up with the idea of having Tupperware parties. Soon those get-togethers were sweeping the nation and Wise became as popular as the product she was selling and in 1954 she also became the first woman to appear on the cover of Business Week.
Wise, however, clashed with Tupper, who eventually pushed her out in 1958 and tried his best to erase her from the company records. She never recovered from the action and was an early casualty of the sexism wars that were beginning to be fought in post-World War II America.
Finally, I managed to add screen captures of Gravity to our gallery, as well screen captures from the DVD extras. It took me the whole day to proper sort everything, since there’s over 2 hours of extras, with plenty of behind-the-scenes and interviews. Check it by following the previews below:
And finally I have updated the gallery with pictures of Sandra last night at the Academy Awards. She was stunning in a navy blue dress, and sadly, she didn’t win as Best Actress (the award goes to Cate Blanchett), but it was definitely a great award season for Sandy, specially when it goes to her style. She had so many incredible choices and this navy Alexander McQueen gown. Check our gallery for over 200 HQ pictures and you can expect more during the week.
Sandra Bullock presented “Gravity” director Alfonso Cuaron with the Visionary Award during the 12th annual VES Awards last February 12, 2014.

I have a few pictures added to the gallery, thanks to Claudia.
