OH MY! Tim here with the second trailer for what looks to be an incredible movie in GRAVITY. Word has also come that it will make its North American premiere at the Toronto Film Festival after it opens the Venice Film Festival a few days earlier.
It's all in one shot! One single take for the incredible action shown in the trailer. Previously we had been told that the film would have an incredibly long take (17 minutes) with additional long takes running throughout, and this small snippet helps us to understand just how incredible these long shots will be. Cuarón mastered long takes in his previous films, but this one seems to be capable of raising the bar. The trailer gives me a strong feeling that this film will win awards.
The trailer is code-named "Detached" and yet, the trailer is anything but detached from suspense. In it we witness the collision event, which was previously shown as quick snippets in the previous trailer. This is from early on in the movie, and sets the stage for the rest of the film's drama.

Bullock stars as 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 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.
