New Posters for Alfonso’s Cuaron’s Gravity

Starring Sandra Bullock and George Clooney

Show the Horror of Truly Being Lost in Space

The posters for Alfonso Cuaron’s (Children of Men) Gravity starring Sandra Bullock and George Clooney have been exceptional in the way they depict a true sense of floating in the vacuum of space.  The latest two add a tone of horror to the mix, of helplessness,  of being truly lost and tumbling out of control, how life can be both personal and existential in a moment.

The Alien Ripley/Sigourney Weaver echo in the Sandra Bullock poster  is effective in recalling the terror of  space travel gone bad.  The tag line:  Don’t Let Go tells everything one needs to know and yet  hints at bigger themes– of humanity needing to never let go in order to survive.
