HOLY COW – what an epic action trailer. Gravity looks awesome!!

Firstly it will be awesome because it is a Alfonso Cuarón film. He is best known for the amazing films CHILDREN OF MEN, HARRY POTTER AND THE PRISONER OF AZKABAN, Y TU MAMA TAMBIEN and a bunch of other amazing pieces of work. Secondly it is part of the year of the sci-fi so this will fuel the amazement of science. It has a real Apollo 13 feel to it. Originally it was going to be Robert Downey Jr. and Angelina Jolie – very odd casting right there that would have ended in punch ups. Then it was going to star Natalie Portman and Clooney – another odd casting match but Portman got a bun in the oven and I really feel sorry for Bullock – but god love her – her and Clooney will be great.

Sandra Bullock took the role after the following either had it or were offered. Angelina Jolie, Rachel Weisz, Naomi Watts, Natalie Portman, Marion Cotillard, Abbie Cornish, Carey Mulligan, Sienna Miller, Scarlett Johansson,Blake Lively, Rebecca Hall and Olivia Wilde. Talk about last choice – but I do love a good bit of Bullock.

This one is going to be very Apollo 13 – two astronauts left floating in space with no contact with the world. PLEASE OH PLEASE can Bowie’s Major Tom be on the soundtrack 🙂 It is one astronauts first trip to space and other’s last trip to space – I do believe in true Hollywood fashion that Clooney’s character will die in space to save the life of Bullock’s – just putting my cynical idea out there 🙂

Regardless, the trailer looks brilliant – GRAVITY releases October 3 in Australia and 4 in US.
