New Gravity Featurette Enters The Web's Orbit
Alfonso Cuarón and co talk 3D

Gravity is one of this year’s most anticipated films, and Alfonso Cuaron’s orbital drama is rocketing towards us with all speed. Now it’s best to see it without knowing too much about the plot, but if you’re fascinated by some of the work that went into making the film, check out this new featurette.

3D these days, as we all know, gets a bad rap, often with good reason. Yet Cuaron and his team really seem to have taken the proper approach with the format, making it work for the story instead of throwing things at the audience to get the “benefit.”

The film, of course, finds Sandra Bullock and George Clooney as astronauts – one a technical specialist trained for this mission on her first flight; the other a veteran shuttle jockey set to retire – out repairing the Hubble telescope. When a chain reaction of debris destroys their shuttle, they’re left to fend for themselves in orbit. Can they survive on a dwindling oxygen supply, no radio contact with Earth and little chance of rescue?

Cuaron’s latest, co-written with his son, Jonas, premieres at the London Film Festival on October 10, and then arrives on general release on November 8.
