Looks extremely good.

But yeah, is it going to be 90 minutes of that?

"Gravity" is among my most anticipated films of this year. I had the chance to read an early version of the screenplay and it was excellent. Sandra Bullock will do well with the part, and Clooney is a good successor for RDJ who was originally cast.
Wow, how on earth did you manage that? Exciting.

Gravity, directed by Alfonso Cuarón,
starring Sandra Bullock and George Clooney,
is the opening film of the 70th Venice Festival
August 28

spoiler about plot synopsis


http://collider.com/gravity-venice-f...l/#more-266234

yes it seems like that episode of ENT in which the 2 actors were stuck in the shuttlecraft.
most of the film will be just 2 actors acting it sounds like.

Re: 'Gravity' (2012) dir. by Alfonso Cuarón 3D sci-fi space thriller

Given Richard Linklater/Julie Delphy/Ethan Hawke managed to produce three films with that exact premise (a pair of people talking), all of which are uniformly brilliant, without any SF premise... coupled with Cuaron's inherent talent, I can see this working wonderfully.

Can't see it making a whole heap of moolah though.

But I'll be there regardless.

Re: 'Gravity' (2012) dir. by Alfonso Cuarón 3D sci-fi space thriller

I like Sandra Bullock and George Clooney but the plot seems a little limited (space disaster, trying to find a way back to earth).

I saw the trailer at the theater a while back and it seemed well done. Of course after the loud explosion that destroys the shuttle and/or space station my son leans over to me and says, "Its in space so how would we hear an explosion? There is no sound in space." To which I felt stupid that a 12 year old had figured that out immediately while I had fallen prey to an age old hollywood fictional license. Grrrrr!!!

That's great but that wasn't the trailer they showed prior to either Pacific Rim or WWZ (I forget which).

Use this link. This was the trailer showing in theaters.

Nice try though.

That was more in jest. No offense intended.

Additionally, I think the newer trailer is the better of the two.

Apparently, they only did that for the trailer. In the movie, there's no sound in space.


That new trailer looks pretty damn impressive!

No sound in space except for the music score. Also, when she touches things, there is a sound (transmitted through glove/suit), so they are being very honest and legit with how they depict stuff.

Even the sunrise/sunsets take place in real-time, and when the sun goes away, you've only got the moon as a reflected light source, so they aren't even cheating much with lighting. Combine all that with the guy's incredible visual style and -- I'm so there.

QFT... I am getting really excited about this, especially since they seem to be taking the science seriously. Perhaps if it does at all well it'll even give some more impetus to the public conversation about space junk, which would be a great thing.
