Trailer: Gravity

The second trailer for director Alfonso Cuarón’s sci-fi thriller starring Sandra Bullock and George Clooney as astronauts stranded in orbit during a disasterous mission.

First Impressions: The first trailer showed some impressive looking glimpses and already had us interested in seeing this, the new trailer with a whole sequence shot in one take just seals the deal. This looks absolutely stunning, and the director of Children Of Men looks sure not to disappoint. Having seen the first trailer in 3D at cinemas, I can say that this one also looks to be one to see in 3D. Gravity is due to be released in UK cinemas  on October 18th.

Trailer: The Descendants

From director Alexander Payne comes this drama Starring George Clooney as an absent father who tries to reconcile with his daughters after their mother has a boating accident. Due out in UK cinemas at the start of 2012.

First Impressions: I still have never seen About Scmidt but I must be about the only person who didn’t think much of Sideways, but strangely I like the look of this, and really enjoy George Clooney in these meaty roles, Michael Clayton was a complete surprise to me, I think this may be a performance from him along the same lines.
