In the category of upcoming films I can’t wait to see, I would have to include Gravity (2013). The movie is directed by Alfonso Cuarón, whose last feature film was the excellent Children of Men (2006), which was about a crumbling future society where humans stopped reproducing. Gravity is also in the science-fiction category, but this time Cuarón goes to space.
Gravity stars Sandra Bullock and George Clooney as two astronauts on a space shuttle mission where the shuttle is destroyed, leaving the two stranded in space. It is an interesting casting choice, especially considering that it looks like the two leads will have to carry the film. Clooney has already been in a very good creepy space science-fiction film with Solaris (2002), and Bullock is an excellent actress.
The trailer makes me think the movie might give me nightmares, but the cool kind of lost-in-space nightmares, not the scary-monster nightmares. Check it out.
Gravity is scheduled to be released October 4, 2013. Mark your calendar.
