When Warner Bros. had it’s panel at Comic Con over the weekend, the response after seeing footage from Gravity was astounding. Critics and fans alike were speechless.
Many said without a doubt it was their most anticipated film of the year, calling the footage scary, beautiful and intense.
Now WB have released three new trailers for Alfonso Cuarón’s Gravity which stars George Clooney and Sandra Bullock.
Hit the jump for the three trailers, the full Comic Con panel and Cuarón comparing his film to a Stanley Kubrick classic.
Speaking with The Huffington Post, the director opened up on the similarities between his film and Kubrick‘s 2001: A Space Odyssey saying,
“The two things they have in common: The approach is to do something that is realistic. Very realistic. I mean, we thought it should feel as if you’re watching a Discovery Channel documentary on what went wrong. And Kubrick was — even if he was dealing with the future where technology doesn’t exist right now, he was so meticulous about it. But I think that’s where the similarities end because Kubrick’s film is an almost philosophical piece.”
Gravity will be shown at the Venice Film Festival next month.
On the official site for the film, there are three countdown timers for the film, leading up to three separate trailers/clips for the film. One we have now which shows Bullock trying to save herself. The second trailer/clip will be released later today and the third tomorrow.

Comic Con Panel:
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.
