GRAVITY to Be Re-released in Theaters Nationwide This Friday
Variety reports that Warner Bros. will be re-releasing its award-winning film GRAVITY at more than 900 theaters beginning this Friday, January 17th. The film originally hit theaters on October 4 and has earned more than $670 million worldwide, making it the eighth-highest grossing release of 2013.
The film has already been accumulating awards including a recent Golden Globe nod for best director Alfonso Cuaron. The film's re-release will come just a day after the Oscar nominations are announced on Thursday.
"We are thrilled by the many accolades for 'Gravity,' which have generated renewed word-of-mouth and interest in seeing the film, whether for The First Time or to experience it again," said Warner Bros. domestic distribution prexy Dan Fellman. "We wanted to give audiences everywhere another opportunity to see it the way it was meant to be seen-on the big screen."
In the film, Sandra Bullock plays Dr. Ryan Stone, a brilliant medical engineer on her first shuttle mission, with veteran astronaut Matt Kowalsky (George 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.
