Vamers - FYI - Movies - Gravity Official PosterGravity is a long awaited science fiction thriller that focusses on a tragedy which leaves two astronauts deserted in the infinite and unforgiving realm of deep space.

The film stars Academy Award® winners Sandra Bullock (The Blind SideThe Proposal) and George Clooney (Up in the AirSyriana), and is being directed by Oscar® nominee Alfonso Cuarón (Children of Men).

The film follows Dr. Ryan Stone (Bullock), a brilliant medical engineer, who is on her first shuttle mission to space. Her companion, veteran astronaut Matt Kowalsky (Clooney), is in command of the flight, which also happens to be his last before retiring. Unfortunately, as is the norm when it comes to science-fiction films, things take a turn for the worst during a routine spacewalk. The result is a disaster that leaves Stone and Kowalsky completely abandoned in space, with no communication to Earth, as they spiral further into the inky blackness of the universe.

The official teaser and full trailers are embedded below and they are stunningly goose-bump inducing.

Gravity hits South African cinemas on 18th October 2013.
