George Clooney and Sandra Bullock Star in Gravity

Forget all the horror films – director Alfonso Cuarón's Gravity looks like the scariest thing hitting multiplexes this fall.

This first trailer for the sci-fi film due Oct. 4 shows George Clooney and Sandra Bullock as astronauts working on a maneuver outside a space station when an explosion hurls Bullock into space where she could just ... keep ... floating.

It's the most intense minute and a half I've seen on any screen this year. It also means that Gravity just barged right into the Oscar race – for technical awards, anyway, given how gorgeous the cinematography is.

What do you think? Are you excited for Gravity to hit?
