The first full trailer for Alfonso Cuaron’s long-delayed sci-fi flick Gravity has finally arrived, and space has never looked so absolutely terrifying.

No, these astronauts aren’t facing xenomorphs or Reavers, but the inky, black nothingness all around them is more than scary enough. Set 372 miles above the Earth, the story follow two astronauts drifting away from the planet after a horrible accident aboard a space station.

If you thought that teaser footage was good, you ain't seen nothing yet.

The effects are breathtaking, and the footage here looks like nothing we’ve ever seen. If Cuaron can carry this tension for the length of the film, this could be one of the most unique films of the year.

Here’s the full 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.

After a year-long delay to add some 3D effects, Gravity finally opens Oct. 4.
