I love sci-fi movies. Star Wars got me hooked as a kid, and my two most recent favorites have got to be TRON: Legacy and Prometheus. Gravity is a new space thriller that will hit local theaters this October, with George Clooney and Sandra Bullock starring as the two astronauts who get flung out into space after the International Space Station explodes. The trailer above has me interested, but I’m scratching my head as to how you can make a movie out of this; I guess having two Oscar award winners will help, but the trailer doesn’t show much else. It makes me think of the film Open Water, which films a recently-wed couple that gets stranded in the ocean, only to be, well, I won’t spoil it for ya. Enjoy the trailer, and hit the link below for a fun Frommer’s fact about Gravity’s director.

Does the name “Alfonso Cauron” ring a bell at all? It didn’t to me. I’m not a movie buff, but I’d like to think I know more than the average Joe (hence our website name), but this little fact surprised me. Alfonso has some solid sci-fi roots, as he directed the outstanding Clive Owen thriller, Children of Men.
