Ah, Alfonso Cuaron. Let me count the ways that I love thee... Cuaron, the directorial genius behind such masterpieces as Children of Men and Y Tu Mama Tambien is finally returning with the space disaster thriller, Gravity.
A few days ago, we got our first extremely short glimpse of the movie, but now we can finally appreciate the first official poster. Check it out below:
Want an official synopsis to help explain the poster? Well, here you go:
Dr. Ryan Stone is a brilliant medical engineer on her first shuttle mission, with veteran astronaut Matt Kowalsky 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 spiraling out into the blackness. The deafening silence tells them they have lost any link to Earth... and any chance for rescue. As fear turns to panic, every gulp of air eats away at what little oxygen is left. But the only way home may be to go further out into the terrifying expanse of space.
To say I'm excited for Gravity is a bit of an understatement. I have been following this movie practically since the idea popped up in Cuaron's brilliant little brain. From what I've heard it really will be a cinematic masterpiece, including stunning visuals, great performances from and and a 17-minute single shot opening scene courtesy of Emmanuel Lubezki.
What do you think? Have you, like me, already fallen for Gravity? Let me know below.
