Gravity

Here's hoping that Warner Bros. is selling the sizzle and not the steak. We're still a couple of months from "Gravity" hitting theaters, but with bows at Venice and TIFF on the horizon, the marketing machine is starting to churn for the film. In case you missed, late last night a single take scene formed the basis of a new trailer for the movie, and another long take teaser has arrived.

Entitled "Drifting," the sequence finds Sandra Bullock alone in the vast reaches of space, thousands of miles from Earth, spinning and desperately trying to make contact with Houston... or anybody really. Depending on who you are, this is either totally bracing and riveting stuff, or totally hilarious viewed out of context. The internet can't seem to decide, though early footage shown to nerds at Comic-Con last weekend left some almost wetting themselves, but then again, it doesn't take much for that crowd.

"Gravity" hits on October 4th. Watch below.

    That last "please copy" + the score gives me chills!! And now that I'm high as a kite I totally get why people are laughing, but more like a silent little laugh rather than a big "HARDY HARDY HAHA" laugh.

    Don't think it's funny, either...but I'm going to see it!

    Well, this looks so distressing and I can't wait to see it!

    Whatever Kevbo, you wet yourself too.

    Ugh, not sure if I'm more sick off all the automatic praise for long-takes - refreshingly absent in this article - or the constant moaning over new comic book movies.

    For those who think this is hilarious, try explaining to me how any of these shots were accomplished. I have never seen anything like this.

    James is right, all it takes is a boatload of money for CGI. It's not like they actually went into space to shoot this sequence.

    Wow @James you make it sound so easy. Oh well, gotta get back to making my $80 million space epic! Seriously...amateurs

    a green screen, a camera rig and a small camera. the rest is fixed with cgi.

    What about this is hilarious?

    You seriously don't see what could possibly be funny-looking about those last 20 seconds of her spinning slowly? I'm seeing this day one, but don't be surprised when general audiences are laughing in the theaters, because they already have been howling at the trailer (all four times I saw it in a theater).
