24 Frames: The 'Preview' Edition (What to see at the cinema as 2013 continues…)

Last week I saw the trailer for this movie which stars Sandra Bullock and George Clooney as space explorers who appear to be in great peril. I remember seeing the announcement for this movie at least two years ago, but it kind of died a death through lack of oxygen (sorry, awful pun). I would also like to apologise for leaving this movie off my preview piece from last week, I hope you can all forgive me!

While the director of the movie, Alfonso Cuaron has fronted everything from Harry Potter to a modern take on Great Expectations, it is his 2006 movie Children of Men that stands up as one of the best science fiction movies of the past decade. As you will see from the trailer, Gravity features a glorious tracking shot that is intense and well shot. I enjoyed George Clooney's other foray into space with the existential and subdued Solaris (2002) which was directed by the now 'retired' Steven Soderbergh.

My main thoughts on this trailer are that if the rest of the movie can maintain this stratospheric brilliance (sorry bad pun again) then we could be looking at one of the best movies of the year. It is rare for such a claustrophobic movie featuring only two central characters to be green lit by a major studio. The last movie I saw with such a specific story arc was the terrifying Buried (2010) where Ryan Reynolds spends much of the movie inside a coffin. It is great to finally see Gravity getting the traction it deserves. It's been a long wait; I guess wonderful movies are worth waiting for. Let us know what you think of the trailer in the comments below!
