Bullock plays Dr. Ryan Stone, a brilliant medical engineer on her first shuttle mission, with veteran astronaut Matt Kowalsky (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 spiralling out into the blackness.
Directed by Alfonso Cuaron, Gravity looks to be a solid space thriller with some glorious visuals to go with the peril. It’ll fly into our cinemas on October 18, and you can see the trailer right here.
