Gravity (Trailer #1) Review
I like this trailer it’s got a good realistic feel to it. The visuals look great and it’s an intriguing idea, truly scary because they are alone and if they lose their grip they are gone forever. When I first watched this trailer I thought it was a nightmare I had once (I have nerdy dreams) and obviously to me feels frightening. There’s a scene that got to me, just got chills when that astronaut floats away into the darkness. The director of Children of Men is behind this one and whilst that film isn’t my favourite the concepts where fantastic. The cast is really small for a big budget film, with a grand total of two. Sandra Bullock and George Clooney will be our brave space walkers. My prediction is that one dies and one cries, mwahahahaha!
My Score: B+
Release date: 4th October 2013
Dr. Ryan Stone (Bullock) is a medical engineer on her first Space Shuttle mission and is accompanied by veteran astronaut Matt Kowalsky (Clooney), who is in command of the shuttle flight, due to be his last. During a spacewalk, the space shuttle is destroyed, and Stone and Kowalsky are stranded in space with no communications with Earth.
Top 6 Scenes
6. Great Shots of Earth
I cannot wait to see all these beautiful images of earth from high orbit. This shot looks like the aurora borealis, probably wrong but I am sticking with it. The visuals look gorgeous and you can really see the large budget at work. I do fear that the film won’t make as much money as it cost because it just feels like a niche film market to cash in on.
5. Damn Space Debris!
Oh snap that came out of nowhere. The pace and thrills just escalate massively in this scene and it has some great visuals. I am guessing that thing hitting the arm is some space junk, certainly hope it is because it’s a real problem up in our outer atmosphere and makes it more realistic and possible.
4. Grab The Rope!!!
This is a situation where I know I would be an absolute goner. I’d miss the rope and be fat blob exploding in re-entry. Ha ha keep that imagery in your minds.
3. Look At All The Bits
Got to say the intricate detail in that explosion is amazing. Normally in these things its 5 pieces of something big like sheets of metal, well no it’s actually made of thousands of small pieces of which fly in all directions in space.
2. The Bits Are On Fire!
Dear god no! Not my bits, not the glorious bits scrap. Looks pretty cool though, something I would like to see through a telescope. The kind of reminds me of the Transformers scene when they all come to earth.
1. Into Darkness
Terrifying, just plain terrifying. Think about just losing your grip and never being able to get back. Nobody could come get you, you can’t get back and you will just float away with no hope of survival. Your only choices are how you die; Thirst, freezing or lift your helmet off so that the air in your blood forces its way out.
Well that’s my views. Now what do you think about this newest trailer?
