My recent trip to see Man of Steel was a joyful one but one thing I always look forward to are trailers before the movie starts. I’m a real stickler for making sure I’m on time when going to the cinema specifically not to miss any of the adverts or trailers. It adds to the experience in my mind. Along with my reviews over the coming weeks, I’ll also be writing about the trailers that have caught my attention and added themselves to my list of things to watch over the coming year.
The first one to start off my cinematic chronicles comes in the form of Alfonso Cuarón’s ‘Gravity’. It’s a teaser trailer, not giving very much away but it immediately caught my attention. George Clooney and Sandra Bullock in a movie about being stuck in space, what could go wrong? It’ll be interesting to see the movie when it is out later on this year as the first thing that comes to mind is the phrase ‘in space, no one can hear you scream’. although on further research it turns out that slogan belongs to the movie Alien.
I’m not really too sure what to expect from the movie. Quite possibly the plot of two astronauts being trapped in space is what pulls you in. The idea of that happening is quite frightening as there’s no where for you to go if you’re thrown off course. Will Sandra’s character end up floating around space with no hope of rescue? Will George Clooney be able to save the day and end up back on earth? I guess the only way we’re going to find out is to watch the movie in a few month’s time.
