A teaser trailer for an upcoming space movie set in Low Earth Orbit, called “Gravity” and starring Sandra Bullock and George Clooney, has been released. The movie itself is due for release in October 2013.
Looks interesting and, from initial commentaries on the script, it is a potentially good story which involves space debris and astronauts lost in orbit. That might sound familiar to anyone who has played LEO – Low Earth Orbit!
Sure, there’s going to be tech faults… no sound in space, for example. But, it has to be exciting so such licence is forgivable I suppose.
From my point of view I hope that the orbital physics issues, that must form part of such a story, are bona-fide (as I’ve taken great pains to be the case in the LEO game). Time will tell. Until then, tease yourself with the trailer…
