But I'd say watching this on the big screen there will be many a person in the auditorium throwing up into their nacho tray from dizziness.
I will wait till I see a proper trailer before deciding on whether I want to see the movie or not.

These are the most impressive FX shots I think I’ve seen composed yet! We are finally at ‘photoreal’ with Gravity on what we’ve been shown so far. Hats off to all concerned… this is stellar work!!!

Sure this will be a nauseating experience in IMAX… and I’ll be first in line!

Sandra Bullock's character seems to be getting a hard time in these trailers.
But,generally,its looking good.

I’m really curious to see how (or if) this concept can sustain a full length feature. But given the director I am more than willing to go with it and find out!

As a technical achievement though, this thing is already waaaayyyy out there. I seem to remember people talking it up a couple of years back, as the next true step from what Avatar accomplished with VFX. Totally see what they were getting at now.

Good way to maximise profits! £1 extra for 3D glasses + another (mandatory) £1 for a vom bag

I wouldn't say it's photoreal. The CG is excellent, but it still looks CG.

To these old eyes…that looks as real as it gets with 1's and 0's

I probably shouldn't have watched the trailer since it shows the major set piece, but it does look very impressive.

I hope there is more to this film than CGI people getting thrown about in space... I get that it's visually impressive, but I'd ideally want the trailer to intrigue me with the story and characters too.

Why? A good trailer only needs to entice and tease. Any heavy-indulgence in plot/character will only spoil its secrets for you.

Exactly, and this trailer did neither of those things. It just showed a clip that in itself could have simply been a short film experimenting with outer-space cgi/cinematography. It gives no impression of this as a full length film, or reason why I should watch it for 90+ minutes. I think Alfonso's previous film's are brilliant, but I don't like the way this looks. There was no sense of weight (possibly due to the floaty, fast camera darting about everywhere) and so I didn't believe it for a second, like a scene from a photorealistic animation rather than a tangible situation. If that's all it is for the full length then I'm not interested because for those reasons it lacked any drama or tension for me (but i am very picky about CGI). I can't engage with a film that is just showy visuals, regardless of their quality. It's like getting a desert that's just sauces and fillings, sure, they are well crafted, but I'm hungry and I want some cake with that. The question is, has Alfonso baked a cake, or not? I just don't know at this point.

I don’t think these are really to be viewed as trailers in the traditional sense. WB is releasing 3 clips over 3 days, each showcasing single track shots.

Call them small promos… perhaps even tech demos to get nerds and space enthusiasts interest but these aren’t really trailers. I should think after the 3rd clip is released there will be a theatrical trailer to follow the brilliant teaser that was released a while back.

As amazing as I find these clips, they’re not going to spark interest with the general public. A character/plot driven trailer will be along shortly, given that the film is only about 3 months away now.

You can see clip 2 here now:

Well if you watch the film, I'm sure you'll find out either way.

Good trailers tease, but primarily they are marketing tools. It's a bit silly to be dismissive of something based on that. Rather than some slick and overly informative promotional design, surely your liking for Cuaron's previous work should be the bigger incentive to go and see it?

All 3 clips were amazing! Was sold… now I’m double sold.

But I will be stashing a vom bag next to the smuggled in snacks when I head to the IMAX for this.
