New extended trailer for Gravity explains all the meteoric mayhem

Take a look at this longer trailer just released by Sony Pictures, detailing the reasons behind the accidental attack on the space shuttle, and going beyond Sandra Bullock's mere grasping and groaning as she tumbles into oblivion.  The initial Gravity teasers have been somewhat sparse in their plot details, other than anxious astronauts dealing with an orbital disaster involving a rogue satellite, leaving some audiences snickering at their clumsy antics in outer space.  

This detailed examination of the disaster gives a more accurate portrayal of the film's pace and structure.  With ecstasy-inducing cinematography and brilliant, disorienting camerawork, director Alfonso Cuaron has crafted a dense, dire depiction of the horrifying harshness of space travel, no doubt designed to look awesome splashed across an epic IMAX screen ... even a year later than expected.

Grab onto something and have a nice trip.

Here the official synopsis:

Sandra Bullock plays Dr. Ryan Stone, a brilliant medical engineer on her first shuttle mission, with veteran astronaut Matt Kowalsky (George Clooney) in command of his last flight before retiring. 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.

spins into theaters on Oct. 4, 2013, in IMAX 3D.
