Alfonso Cuarón is one of the best directors working today: His works include the remarkable Y Tu Mamá También, far and away the best Harry Potter movie (Harry Potter and the Prisoner of Azkaban), and the perpetually stunning Children of Men, which I rank up there along with 2001 and Blade Runner in terms of all-time great sci-fi movies. All that might be worth keeping in mind when watching the new trailer for Gravity—his space-set, long-delayed follow-up to Children of Men. It's... oh, man. It's a hell of a trailer. Here you go.
So yeah, that will probably be amazing and fucking terrifying.
