Although we may look up at the stars in wonder, space can actually be a very scary place. In this terrifyingly awesome trailer for Gravity, director Alfonso Cuarón attempts to destroy any childhood dreams you once had of becoming an astronaut.
The film stars Sandra Bullock and George Clooney (and only Bullock and Clooney) as astronauts on a space shuttle mission that turns catastrophic. Space debris forces them to detach from the shuttle, leaving them completely stranded and running out of oxygen.
In case you didn’t notice, the trailer is one continuous shot. In fact, the first 20 minutes of the film is a single extended take, just to heighten to the fear of what it would be like to helplessly drift further and further into the infinite darkness. Gravity is set to open the Venice Film Festival on August 28, and will be released in theaters on October 4.
