Is this the synopsis for Alfonso Cuarón’s "Spaceman George Clooney" flick Gravity?

We're still not sure what to make of director Alfonso Cuarón's (Children of Men) next picture Gravity. But we do know that it stars George Clooney and Sandra Bullock and deals with such jovial topics as isolation and death in space. Thankfully, this latest synopsis has us very excited.

JoBlo has stumbled across what they believe is the official synopsis for Gravity, which has a few spoilery goodies:

Bullock plays Dr. Ryan Stone, a brilliant medical engineer on her first shuttle mission, with veteran astronaut Matt Kowalsky (Clooney) 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.
