Yeah, I'm not quite sure how this limited premise has enough content to justify a 90+ minute film.
Actually, it's exactly 90 min. long - and we don't even really know at this point whether that's ALL the movie is about, do we?

What we (or I, anyway) DO know is that Alfonso Cuarón is an amazing director and that the trailer looks really impressive, and that's enough to get me into the theater.
Well all I have to go on is the trailer and I thought it looked absolutely awful. I'm honestly not sure what it is that people find so impressive about the trailer. At least with Transformers I understand why people like those films, but with this I've got nothing.

Is it the potential for interesting dialogue between two people near death? The realistic sci-fi setting? The fear of dying from suffocation? The fear of being alone in the vastness of space? The visuals?
