Alfonso Cuarón's long-awaited follow-up to 2006's "Children of Men"is finally here. Or at least the trailer is. Or wait, that's coming Thursday. So what do we have in the meantime? Well, it's about 10 seconds or less of teaser footage from the upcoming trailer for "Gravity," Cuarón's outer space thriller starring Sandra Bullock and George Clooney. Yes, you hate the tease of a tease. Understandably, so do we. But admittedly, this film has been in the works for so long now it is somewhat of a relief to finally see some evidence that it finally and actually exists.

Gravity trailer, Clooney

Alfonso Cuarón's long-awaited follow-up to 2006's "Children of Men"is finally here. Or at least the trailer is. Or wait, that's coming Thursday. So what do we have in the meantime? Well, it's about 10 seconds or less of teaser footage from the upcoming trailer for "Gravity," Cuarón's outer space thriller starring Sandra Bullock and George Clooney. Yes, you hate the tease of a tease. Understandably, so do we. But admittedly, this film has been in the works for so long now it is somewhat of a relief to finally see some evidence that it finally and actually exists.

As you probably know by now, "Gravity" was shot in 3D, is super effects heavy, was in development for years and was pushed off its 2012 release date last year because it apparently needed more VFX tinkering. Now it's finally ready. Or at least a trailer is and it should be upon us in a matter of hours. Here's the official synopsis:

Dr. Ryan Stone (Sandra Bullock) is a brilliant medical engineer on her first shuttle mission, with veteran astronaut Matt Kowalsky (George Clooney). 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 away at what little oxygen is left. But the only way home may be to go further out into the terrifying expanse of space.

We read the script years ago and you probably did too, but suffice to say it's a bit of a minimalist affair though it does have a lot of thrills. Written by Alfonso Cuarón & Jonás Cuarón, Warner Bros. Pictures will release "Gravity" in 3D and 2D in select theaters and IMAX on October 4. That probably means some kind of limited release which is not surprising considering the material, but the cost is said to be very high, so WB will likely want to go wider at some point to make some of its investment back. The film has been heralded as the next "Avatar," at least via its reportedly groundbreaking effects. We'll have to wait and see.
