Alfonso Cuaron's GRAVITY Now Set for October Release
GRAVITY, Sandra Bullock, Alfonso Cuaron
The film was originally set for a November 2012 wide release, but at the last moment, Warner Bros. announced they had bumped it forward to allow more space between such anticipated films as GANGSTER SQUAD and THE HOBBIT.
GRAVITY focuses on the character of Dr. Ryan Stone (Sandra Bullock), a brilliant medical engineer on her first shuttle mission. By her side is veteran astronaut Matt Kowalsky (George Clooney), in command of his last Flight before retiring. 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.
The film was written by Cuaron and his son, Jonas Cuaron.
