First image of Sandra Bullock in Gravity is depressing


Although Alfonso Cuarón’s Gravity won’t drift into theaters until October, and we already have one gorgeous trailer for it, I still need more information. And to help with that a little is a new image (courtesy of USA Today) of Sandra Bullock (who stars with George Clooney) looking mighty fine. I love almost everything Sandra Bullock is a part of, so I’m sure uniting her powers of congeniality with Cuarón’s gifted eye (I mean, the film’s starting with a 17 minute shot) will yield nothing but greatness.

Yet this looks so grey. But that shouldn’t worry you either. In the same interview with USA Today, Cuarón noted all the work that went into the film. Bullock’s scenes were shot in a 9ft cube of LED lights, the simulated zero gravity shooting was physically demanding, and a lot of work went into to make space look pretty:

When you see this Earth from outer space with all of its beauty and colors, you don’t see all of these separations between these countries…Earth is just one organic, beautiful thing. We happen to live in a very stunning and beautiful place.

I’m going to read that every time I’m sad.
