Bullock's Dr. Ryan Stone suddenly 'can't breathe' after her craft is hit by debris in the first teaser for Alfonso Quaron's film, which also stars George Clooney.
After previously debuting its first footage, director Alfonso Quaron's upcoming flick "Gravity" has recently unleashed its first teaser trailer that unveils a breathtaking view of outer space as well as a nerve-racking experience undergone by Sandra Bullock, whose character Dr. Ryan Stone gets into a panic during her first shuttle mission.
Released on May 9, the video follows Stone doing a leisure spacewalk in company with a veteran astronaut when flying debris suddenly hits their craft. "I can't breathe! What do I do?" Stone says. Completely lost in outer space, she later desperately says, "Anybody, please call me."
The space-set film centers on Stone, a brilliant medical engineer who is on her first shuttle mission. Accompanied by astronaut Matt Kowalsky, the seemingly routine spacewalk turns into a disaster as their shuttle is destroyed, leaving Stone and Kowalsky completely alone. The deafening silence tells them they've lost any link to Earth and any chance for rescue.
The sci-fi film marks the return of Quaron, who has not helmed any pic since 2006's "Children of Men". Taking triple duty in the project, the Mexican filmmaker directs, pens the script with his son Jonas, and co-produces alongside "Harry Potter" producer David Heyman.
Also starring George Clooney, "Gravity" is set to hit theaters in the United States on October 4.
