What's with the name?

Alfonso Cuarón

Cautiously Optimistic

Watch This Trailer for Alfonso Cuarón’s Believe And Tell Us What You Think [VIDEO]

You wouldn’t know it from this trailer, which proudly trumpets only J.J. Abrams‘s executive producer credit, but NBC’s upcoming Believe was actually co-created by Abrams and Alfonso Cuarón. Around here we’re big fans of both his work and girls with superpowers, so needless to say we’ve been looking forward to this for a while. But the teaser… maybe it’s just that it’s early and I’m pre-breakfast, but it doesn’t grab me like I thought it would. The show looks really generic. White dude with a troubled past rescuing people. Whoopee. But hey, trailers have been misleading before. And Jamie Chung being there pleases my Mulan-loving heart.

What do you think?

Going Behind-The-Scenes Of Gravity Makes Us Love Sandra Bullock Even More

Alfonso Cuarón’s Gravity is amazing, but incredibly difficult to watch (what with the intense anxiety and inevitable spontaneous crying). Now, take that feeling, multiple it by a million, and that’s approximately how challenging it was to actually make the film. If you didn’t think Sandra Bullock deserved an Oscar before, you just might change your mind after watching this Behind-the-Scenes featurette.

Gravity Could Have Been Really, Really Different

Alfonso Cuaròn‘s surprisingly intimate sci-fi thriller Gravity has been both a critical and box office success, generating some Oscar buzz for star Sandra Bullock. The film had a long road to its triumph, and there were a few narrow misses along the way to bringing us the movie as it exists now. Thinking of just how different Gravity could have been, or how it could have fizzled out before it even got to production, makes the film all the more amazing to watch.

Review

Gravity and Other Forces to Be Reckoned With

Alfonso Cuarón’s ambitious Gravity does not need monsters, aliens, or traitorous humans to strike fear into viewers looking out at the empty black night. All that is required is the silent, lonely expanse of space itself; airless, without aid, and full of its own ethereal beauty. Perhaps the most intense 90 minutes I’ve spent in a theater this year, Gravity presents space itself as the true horror, a place where indifferent forces collide to spell catastrophe for any humans unlucky enough to be in their path. Despite a tendency to become overwhelmed in places by its own sentimentality (or simply by the soundtrack) Gravity is a taunt, breathtakingly arranged film that will likely leave you on the edge of your seat.

Astronaut Talks About Why She Chose Long Hair in Space

Okay, we’ve been posting a lot about astronaut Cady Coleman and her role as a consultant on Alfonso Cuarón‘s Gravty, but really, when was the last time there was this much opportunity to share interviews and news stories about a female astronaut? Also there are some clips in here of Sandra Bullock being badass in the movie, so they’re pretty enjoyable too.

So just watch this and pretend that NASA isn’t being shut down today because of an intractable Congress.

Earlier this summer I mentioned Gravity in front of a friend. “Gravity?” he asked. “Yeah, you know, Gravity.” Then, instead of saying “Oh, now I remember,” he simply shuddered explosively.

So, basically, yeah. Good job, Gravity.

Oh Look, Another Terrifying Trailer For Gravity

Extended Gravity Trailer Gives Us Five Terrifying Minutes of Sandra Bullock Floating In Space [VIDEO]


The new extended trailer for Alfonso Cuarón‘s Gravity gives us a bit more plot to go along with the terror we have come to know from previous clips. There is plenty of hurtling through space on the part of stars Sandra Bullock and George Clooney, but there is also a good hint at how their nerve racking ordeal starts, thanks to some tense radio communications with Earth. The film is set for release on October 4, 2013, and will, obviously, be in IMAX theaters and in 3D, to ensure that you feel as alone and uncertain as the characters floating in the vacuum of space as you view the truly terrifying looking thriller.

New Gravity Trailer Is Terrifying, Looks Awesome [VIDEO]

When astronauts lose their tether in space, I’m not sure if us plebeians understand the real gravity of the situation. I mean, it’s not like it’s just a matter of space between George Clooney and Sandra Bullock. Well, actually it is, but not like that!

Okay, I promise I’ll stop with the puns. The most recent trailer for Alfonso Cuarón‘s Gravity (the film about Bullock-the-astronaut getting stranded alone in the vast void of space) looks like the right combination of pure terror, tense thrills, and the awesome beauty of space.

How can you astro-NOT see this?

That one was too bad, even for me.
