The TV spot for Gravity that debuted during yesterday’s MTV VMAs has arrived online and if you’re like us, it’ll stop your heart for a moment. George Clooney and Sandra Bullock are astronauts out on a space walk and Clooney sums it up best in the spot’s opening lines when he says, “It’s beautiful, don’t you think.”
What begins as placid appreciation of the Earth’s beauty… ends in horror.
In the midst of their space walk, debris smashes into their ship leaving them stranded. What on Earth will they do?
Gravity feels like Cast Away in space, but even worse. At least Tom Hanks had things around him to help him survive. What will Bullock and Clooney do, simply floating in space? If two actors can command our attention over two hours while free-falling in space… it’s Clooney and Bullock.
Gravity takes hold of audiences October 4.
