Gravity Character Poster Arrives
Update: Now with added Sandra Bullock

30 August 2013  |  Written by James White  |  Source: Warner Bros.

Update: Just as the moon goes around the Earth, so a Sandra Bullock poster naturally follows the Clooney image. We've included it in the gallery. 

Alfonso Cuaron’s Gravity is receiving plenty of critical buzz as it unspools before audiences at the Venice Film Festival. Our own Damon Wise has seen and liked it, so it seems only fitting that a new, George Clooney-centric poster arrives in the vacuum of cyberspace, which you can see lower down the page.

Clooney plays veteran astronaut Matt Kowalsky, a witty, solid space jockey on his last flight before he hangs up his space suit. He’s overseeing nervy Dr. Ryan Stone (Sandra Bullock), up for her first time to conduct experiments and work on the Hubble telescope. She’s not dealing with it well, but Kowalsky is the calm voice of reason and encouragement.

And he’ll need to be, because tragedy strikes while they’re out on an otherwise routine spacewalk and their shuttle is destroyed in a random accident. The pair find themselves suddenly very much alone, tethered only to each other and floating off into the inky depths. There’s no radio contact with Earth, and as panic sets in, they discover the only way to get home might be to go deeper into space.

The thought is already giving us palpitations but we can’t wait for Gravity to dock at UK cinemas. We’ll have to be a little patient, though – it arrives on October 18.
