Gravity trailer goes ‘bong!’ as George Clooney and Sandra Bullock go flying George Clooney and Sandra Bullock become the victims of an unfortunate incident while watching the sun rise. Skin cancer? Nope. Do they get mugged? Nope. What happens then? As you can see in the Gravity trailer below, following a loud Bong, Bam, Boom! Clooney and Bullock quite literally go flying. Something — was it a meteorite? Intergalactic debris? — has collided against their spacecraft (or space shuttle or whatever). See, they’re watching the sun "rise" from way up there. Check out the Gravity trailer below. (Photo: George Clooney in Gravity movie.) Gravity trailer: 2001: A Space Odyssey Meets Lost in Space Meets Apollo 13? The Gravity trailer, or rather, teaser, provides quite bit of action with minimal dialogue. It’s impossible to tell what kind of relationship (veteran astronaut) George Clooney and (medical engineer and tyro astronaut) Sandra Bullock share. »

There are few events in the entertainment calendar as painfully glamorous as the Cannes Film Festival. A-List stars parading around a gorgeous, exotic location in dresses that cost the same as a down payment on a nice semi-detached in Chiswick - this is showbiz heaven, isn't it?
You'd think it impossible when surrounded with so much luxury to have a bad time, but sadly for some celebs their visit to the showcase was a right pain in the derrière, as the French call it. As the 66th festival kicked off last night (May 15) with a gloomy, rain-lashed premiere of The Great Gatsby, we take a moment to remember the stars who came home crying from Cannes.
Despite being one of the most well-known women in the world, Angelina Jolie is fiercely private when it comes to matters of health and family. »
Here's your latest casting news out of the 2013 Cannes Film Festival: Joel Edgerton (Warrior) will join Johnny Depp in the Barry Levinson crime thriller Black Mass about Boston kingpin Whitey Bulger. Chris Pine (Star Trek), Amanda Seyfried (Les Miserables) and Chiwetel Ejiofor (Children of Men) have joined the Tobey Maguire production Z for Zacharia, directed by Craig Zobel (Compliance). Hit the jump for more on each casting announcement. Deadline reports that Edgerton has joined the cast of Black Mass as FBI agent and childhood pal of Bulger, John Connolly. Connolly was tasked with taking down the Italian mob and cooperated with Bulger, who acted as an FBI informant with the dual intention of getting the Feds to eliminate his own underworld competition. Connolly himself was eventually convicted of racketeering and obstruction of justice for aiding Bulger, along with second-degree murder charges stemming from leaked information to the mobsters. Deadline also reports that Pine, »

This weekend, Star Trek Into Darkness hits theaters and the common consensus among reviewers seems to be that Jj Abrams' adaptation of the beloved series is even better this time around. The thing we're most excited about, of course, is Zoe Saldana's return as a young Nyota Uhura. Apparently Saldana's role is much bigger this time around, which means the Star Trek sequel is a can't miss for us!
Of course, lesbian and bisexual women are not strangers to the world of science fiction. In fact, we often find better representation in the fantasy realm than in any other genre. And even when we don't find queer women to swoon over, we find powerful women to root for. »

Sandra Bullock and George Clooney finds themselves in space for this out of this world thriller by director Alfonso Cuaron. The first trailer for Gravity sets up quite a cliff hanger for the new sci-fi flick.
Sandra Bullock goes where she's never gone before--into space. Bullock's co-star George Clooney revisits the outer limits once again after the disastrous Steven Soderbergh's space drama Solaris in 2002. From Mexican director Alfonso Cuaron (Y Tu Mamá También, Children of Men, Harry Potter and the Prisoner of Azkaban) comes an intriguing project that stars Sandra Bullock and George Clooney as astronauts sent into orbit literally when their space station breaks apart. The scene in the trailer sets up the accident which might send Bullock's Dr. Stone into orbit without a lifeline.
It's not clear what happens to Clooney's character,

It’s here! One of the busiest times of the year for those of us who follow news about TV, if not TV news. It’s the annual Upfronts, when networks announce who is staying, who is going, and when we’ll be seeing what. First up, NBC, home of Grimm and Revolution, and now home as well to Dracula and J.J. Abrams and Alfonso Cuaron‘s Believe.
We have the new NBC synopsis for Dracula today, along with the first, quite lovely, trailer. We also have the new synopsis for Believe, which features just a few little tweaks compared to the version we posted last week, And the schedule for our four favorite NBC shows. Ready?

The Fall TV Season presentations for all the new network shows take place this week with the first announced today. Here's a full breakdown of which concepts have made the final list over on NBC.
The Peacock did not have a good year. Only one of its new shows, "Revolution," was a true hit. Another, "Chicago Fire," got renewed by the skin of its teeth whilst the fate of a third, "Hannibal," remains uncertain.
None of last year's new comedies survived, neither did two mid-season dramas, which leaves the network with some big holes to fill. Three dramas and three comedies will debut in the Fall ahead of three more dramas and two comedies mid-season. Two further dramas and a comedy are presently unscheduled.
Several other pilots didn't make the final cut and won't become series including the high-profile Charlize Theron-produced drama about the Hatfields and McCoys, the Bruckheimer-produced »

Take a look at a complete preview of the shows coming your way, and mark your calendars. It looks good for NBC this year, and while I’m not sure all of these look like winners, I think you’ll find at least a couple that you’re really going to like.

After a seven year hiatus, filmmaker Alfonso Cuarón (Harry Potter and the Prisoner of Azkaban, Children of Men) is set to return to the screen this year with his latest offering Gravity, and Warner Bros. Pictures has released the first official trailer for the hotly-anticipated sci-fi film.
Having been in development since 2010, Gravity stars Sandra Bullock (The Blind Side, The Proposal) and George Clooney (Up in the Air, The Descendants) as two astronauts who find themselves stranded in space after their shuttle is destroyed during a spacewalk. Check out the official synopsis, followed by the trailer below...
Bullock plays Dr. Ryan Stone, a brilliant medical engineer on her first shuttle mission, with veteran astronaut Matt Kowalsky (Clooney) in command of his last flight before retiring. But on a seemingly routine spacewalk, disaster strikes. The shuttle is destroyed, leaving Stone and Kowalsky completely alone--tethered to nothing but each other and spiraling out into the blackness. »

"Gravity" is finally ready to take off after delays of almost a year. The two-hander, now due out Oct. 19, showcases Oscar champs Sandra Bullock ("The Blind Side") and George Clooney ("Syriana") as astronauts marooned in space. The just-released tense trailer includes the moment when their spacecraft is damaged, leaving them tethered to each other as they circle the earth. The Warner Bros. release marks a welcome return for Alfonso Cuaron who has not directed a film since "Children of Men" in 2006. That dire look at the future was a critical darling and reaped three Oscar nominations, including bids shared by Cuaron for Adapted Screenplay and Editing. He pulls triple duty on "Gravity" as well. Lenser Emmanuel Lubezki, who picked up the fourth of this five Oscar nominations for "Children of Men," reunites with the helmer here. Shooting 3-D films such as this has proven to be the way to win B. »
The trailer for director Alfonso Cuaron's "Gravity" -- starring George Clooney and Sandra Bullock -- has finally landed. This is Cuaron's first film since the 2006 dystopian sci-fi thriller "Children of Men," starring Clive Owen, Michael Caine and Julianne Moore, which at $76 million was too expensive to be profitable. "Gravity" began shooting in summer 2011 and though it was once thought that the film would have a 2012 release date, Warner Bros. withheld the film to complete VFX. Now, "Gravity" will hit theaters on October 4. In the film, Clooney and Bullock play scientists who, after their outer space mission goes awry, find themselves tethered to nothing but each other in the darkness of space. The film was shot by "Tree of Life" cinematographer Emmanuel Lubezki, and that name alone goes to show that this will be a very different kind of science fiction film, one no doubt with Kubrickian ambitions. View the new poster and trailer below. »

According to one version of history, Stanley Kubrick faked the 1969 Moon landings. The master of cinema used all the camera trickery and miniature effects he perfected in 1968's 2001: A Space Odyssey, the story goes, to fool billions of people into thinking they'd seen Neil Armstrong hop about on the lunar surface, when actually he was in a studio somewhere on Earth.
Although this theory has been comprehensively debunked (there's plenty of proof that Armstrong and other astronauts really did hop about on the Moon), that such a theory could even be taken seriously in the first place is a testament to the groundbreaking special effects work Stanley Kubrick and Douglas Trumbull brought to A Space Odyssey.

At the beginning of the year I composed my list of my Most Anticipated Films of 2013. Not a single frame of the film or even a poster had been released yet, but that didn’t stop Alfonso Cuaron’s upcoming film from catapulting itself to the top of my list at the number #2 spot. This of course stems from my adoration for his brilliant previous film Children of Men. It should come as no surprise then that after finally seeing the new explosive trailer for the film that I’m even more confident in its place on my list. The trailer is equal parts beautiful, startling, and downright terrifying. Ridley Scott’s Alien introduced audiences to the idea “that in space no one can hear you scream.” Well, that iconic phrase is made all the more real while watching this first teaser. Gravity stars George Clooney and Sandra Bullock and »

George Clooney and Sandra Bullock are astronauts doing some work and admiring the view while floating above Earth when things are thrown into a cataclysmic tailspin. After something crashes into their shuttle, the pair are left grappling for something to grab onto in the thrilling first trailer for Gravity, directed by Alfonso Cuaron, the visionary man behind Great Expectations, Y Tu Mama Tambien and Children of Men.
Written by Alfonso and his brother Jonas Cuaron, Gravity's premise is deceptively simple - two people stranded in space - but given the utter and absolute vastness of outer space and the potential for the actors to really sink their teeth into roles that require adept back-and-forth and intensely relying on their imaginations, this is a sci-fi premise with plenty of potential to wow.
Check out the teaser trailer for Gravity, opening October 4, after the jump. »

Before the trailer, we thought: Visionary helmer Alfonso Cuarón has kept his fans waiting a whopping seven years for a follow-up to his dystopian downer "Children of Men," and by all accounts, he hasn't been resting on his laurels. His seventh feature "Gravity" has been a long time coming, but the 3D project is no doubt his most ambitious and ballsiest endeavor to date. In the sci-fi film, Cuaron has George Clooney and Sandra Bullock suit up as two astronauts struggling to survive on a remote space station after satellite debris wipes out the rest of the crew and their ship. Featuring a cast of just two and a dark premise, the film is an anomaly for distributor Warner Bros., who are no doubt betting they have a game changer on their hands. And now? Game changer or not, "Gravity" looks terrifying and unlike anything else out there. The brief »

The received thinking in Hollywood is that science fiction is a risky area of film-making. Nevertheless, studios continue to dip their fingers bravely into the danger zone like poor, doomed Peter Duncan in Flash Gordon. Perhaps it's the success of films such as Avatar, or the eternal popularity of Star Wars and Star Trek, but there seem to be more space-oriented movies around at the moment than there have been since the glory days of the 1970s.
Two teaser trailers hit the internet this week for two very different films, both with a futuristic bent but hailing from as far apart in the sci-fi galaxy as it is possible to travel. Alfonso Cuarón's Gravity, »

Director Alfonso Cuaron's new sci-fi space project 'Gravity' has quite literally been floating around for years now. And now just a few months following the announcement that the project will finally enter theatres this coming October we get to peek at a brand new teaser trailer. The trailer featuring its two leads Sandra Bullock ('Premonition') and George Clooney ('Solaris') being flung around in the Earth's orbit certainly looks to have the visual appeal but just exactly what the rest of the movie will be padded out with is anybody's guess. Now whilst it's been 7 years since Cuaron's last directorial feature we can still be assured of an expert hand at the helm. His previous project 'Children of Men' was visually considerate and included extremely well executed sequences along the way. And with the longevity of the project we're hoping for a well polished final product. »
From the director of Children of Men and Harry Potter and the Prisoner of Azkaban comes Gravity, the story of two surviving astronauts aboard a damaged space station. The film is scheduled for both 2-D, 3D and IMAX 3-D theatrical release on October 4th, 2013. Sandra Bullock plays Dr. Ryan Stone, a brilliant medical engineer on her first shuttle mission, with veteran astronaut Matt Kowalsky (George Clooney) in command of his last flight before retiring. But on a seemingly routine spacewalk, disaster strikes. The shuttle is destroyed, leaving Stone and Kowalsky completely alone–tethered to nothing but each other and spiraling out into the blackness. The deafening silence tells them they have lost any link to Earth…and any chance for rescue. As fear turns to panic, every gulp of air eats »
