After making quite an impact during it’s North American premiere at the Toronto International Film Festival, ‘Gravity’ is picking up some traction as it heads to theaters next week. The first feature from ‘Children of Men’ director Alfonso Cuarón since 2006 is touting a space film like no other before it. Starring George Clooney and Sandra Bullock, the adventurous space thriller explores what would happen if astronauts were left stranded in it the great unknown when a mission goes wrong.

Based on the previous promotional material we’ve seen so far for the film, the unfolding events hold as much mystery as the setting. But maybe these new videos might be able to expand our understanding this highly anticipated movie. First, we have a new TV spot featuring a bit of new footage that we have yet to see thus far:

Then, the cast and crew of the film discuss their approach to 3D and how they manage to almost utilize it as another character in the story. It has to be something special for James Cameron, the current king of the medium, to call the movie “the best space film ever done”, so take a look at the video below to find out more about how these filmmakers used 3D as more than just a gimmick:

If you wanted to learn more about the film, here’s the official synopsis:

Dr. Ryan Stone, a brilliant medical engineer on her first shuttle mission, with veteran astronaut Matt Kowalsky 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.

‘Gravity’ starring Sandra Bullock and George Clooney drifts into theaters on October 4, 2013 in 2D, 3D, and IMAX 3D.
