So we’re gonna start a new segment here at Ticket Stub Love called “Trailer of the Week”, where I show trailers that have caught my eye. Granted, I probably won’t be able to do one every single week but let’s see how it goes because I love watching trailers. It’s seriously my favorite part of going to the movies. So here we go, our first trailer: Gravity. Directed by Alfonso Cuarón, starring Sandra Bullock and George Clooney. Coming to theaters October 4, 2013
I first saw this trailer when I went in to see Man of Steel. The special effects look fantastic. Keep in mind, that this is from the same guy who did Harry Potter: The Prisoner of Askaban, so obviously it’s gonna look great. The beginning of the trailer with the soft piano music and the glimpses of space was beautiful…..then came the crash and the spinning and then I lost interest. Don’t get me wrong, the film looks good, but I don’t think I could stand 90 minutes of Sandra Bullock screaming around in space and the amount of CGI is already giving me a headache. Also, I personally thought the trailer was kind of funny and I started cracking up in the end when they show Bullock spinning and whispering “Anybody, please copy”. Am I the only one who laughed? Well, let’s see how Gravity does when it comes out and then hopefully catch up with it and do a review.
