Admittedly, all you’d have to say is “space drama” and I’m there, so Alfonso Cuarón’s Gravity already had me on its side. George Clooney and Sandra Bullock are the stars and they’re both inoffensive enough and can be pretty great in the right medium, so they’ve still got me on that. Now, a single take trailer has been released and I am SO on board (no pun intended). I’m seriously about to go buy tickets now even though that’s not even possible yet because it doesn’t come out until October. In less than two minutes, that shit managed to get me all kinds of anxious and interested, so the whole movie is probably gonna be BOMB.
Gravity is about two astronauts (Clooney and Bullock, duh) who are trying to get back to Earth after their ship is hit by debris (which the trailer starts to show). I’m so into it – this kinda stuff is right up my street. The movie’s premiering at the Venice Film Festival on August 28, but the best part is that when it’s actually released in theatres, you can see it in 2D, 3D or IMAX. Yessssss.
So we’re all aware that Sandra Bullock is great and her son Louis Bardot is absolutely adorable, right? That’s a thing we’re all in agreement on? Good. Sandra has dedicated most of her time and energy now to raising her little dude and has focused all her energy on mom time. Here’s some quotes from an interview with Io Donna:
“The only man in my life is my son, and it’s probably going to stay this way for a while.
“I go to bed wearing a very baggy one-piece cheetah suit, just because it makes my son laugh. My sexy lingerie has been locked in a drawer for a while!”
“Every day my only focus is my son. I wake up at dawn, drive him to school and leave only a couple of hours for myself and that time is usually spent doing laundries. You know those parents who always complain about being exhausted? I feel exactly the same, but with him everything is also fun and new.
“I wake up in the morning and the only aim is being fun, who could say that? I feel lucky and blessed.”
Aw, that’s so cute! So cute that I literally have nothing negative to say about any of this! But let’s all take a quick second and look back on baby Louis and how much we just wanted to squish him for being so adorable, shall we?
I don’t mind me a bit of Sandy Bullock – her movies are inoffensive enough and she seems like a pretty sweet lady and a decent actress. Plus, her baby, Louis, is absolutely adorable. Not sure why that gives her added credibility, but it does, so let’s just go with it. In any case, she’s got an exciting new role coming down the pipe, maybe: Miss Hannigan in Sony’s Annie remake.
Bullock would play Miss Hannigan, the mean lady who runs the orphanage inhabited by Annie (Wallis) and her friends. (Foxx will play a modern incarnation of Daddy Warbucks, a billionaire named Benjamin Stacks.)
But that is only if a deal is made. Bullock and the studio were in talks in March, but the actress ultimately passed at the time. Now the two sides are back at the table.
I’m sort of in support of this, but a little confused about the casting of this movie all-around. I love little Q, so I’m in on that front, but I’ve never really liked Jamie Foxx very much, to be honest. Also, the 1982 version is so classic so I’m not really sure why we need a remake. Can’t people leave well enough alone?

Oh, you guys, I’m sorry. When I asked the question of “who is the highest paid actress in Hollywood?” and then put a picture of Meryl Streep right up there at the top, that made it look like Meryl is the highest paid actress, didn’t it? I’m sorry, but it’s just not true. Meryl is on the list, but she’s not at the top. She deserves to be at the top, but she’s not.
Before I let you know the richiest rich lady in Hollywood, let me just show you the top ten list, all right? I’ll go ahead and tack on the amount of money they made in the past year, just so you can cry while you balance your checkbook like I do.
Ok, but who do you think landed in the number one spot? Who do you think made nearly three times as much as the beloved Meryl Streep? Who do you think made a few million dollars more than Angelina Jolie and Jennifer Aniston combined?
I double-dog dare you to watch this trailer and not get goosebumps or even choke up a little bit at least once. I’m really not exaggerating, either, when I say that this is probably going to be the best mainstream movie of the year, and the fact that the trailer features my absolute favorite U2 song and the feature itself stars my absolute favorite actor, only reinforces my surety that this is going to be a box office hit. I’ve got a good feeling about this film, friends, so spread the word. I mean, how can you not, especially after seeing this adorable little kid playing such a huge role, too?
I cut off all of my hair about eighteen months ago. Like, seriously. All of it. I had long, flowing hair halfway down my back and decided to go ape-shit and hack it all off. I ended up cutting off about nineteen inches in total and wound up with two-inch-long hair. I really loved it, and I thought it looked pretty OK on me, but the growing out process? WAS A BITCH. I looked like an utter FOOL for the better part of nine months until I could get some semblance of an actual hairstyle, and I’d often think of how lucky some actresses were that they could look totally awesome in pretty much anything.
Sandra could definitely pull off the weird in-between, though – I have positively no doubts.
