The teaser poster does a wonderful job showing off a cool image that makes you want to know what happened right before this to cause the destruction of the shuttle. Its exactly what a teaser should be. It gives little away yet draws you in. The teaser trailer has also been released, and it is safe to say the IMAX format was made for a movie like this. The visuals are breathtaking, & it looks as though it will live up to the hype. The Earth looks stunning in the footage, and if they do the 3D correctly, it will all really pop out. Then of course, the asteroids or whatever it is that destroys the shuttle will be enough to make the toughest person squirm in their seat. I got chills watching it, and seeing Bullock's character seemingly drift off into the eerie calm of space is proof that this entire film will be quite the ride. Watch it here:
Here is the official synopsis: Sandra Bullock plays Dr. Ryan Stone, a brilliant medical engineer on her first shuttle mission, with veteran astronaut Matt Kowalsky (George Clooney) in command of his last flight before retiring. But on a seemingly routine spacewalk, disaster strikes. The shuttle is destroyed, leaving Stone and Kowalsky completely alone–tethered to nothing but each other and spiraling out into the blackness. The deafening silence tells them they have lost any link to Earth... and any chance for rescue. As fear turns to panic, every gulp of air eats away at what little oxygen is left. But the only way home may be to go further out into the terrifying expanse of space.. The film will be released on October 4, 2013.
Sandra Bullock is in for another big year as her return to comedy with Melissa McCarthy, The Heat, is out on June 28, 2013.
