In development for a little over two years now, Alfonso Cuarón’s Gravity finally has an official release date of October 4th of this year. Cuarón’s much-anticipated follow up to Children of Men was originally planned for a November 2012 release but was unexpectedly delayed by Warner Bros. As been reported, Gravity is mainly a two person show that stars Sandra Bullock and George Clooney.
Official Plot Synopsis:
Dr. Ryan Stone (Sandra Bullock) is a brilliant medical engineer on her first shuttle mission, with veteran astronaut Matt Kowalsky (George Clooney). 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.
Gravity is going up against Sin City: A Dame To Kill For, Vince Vaughn comedy The Delivery Man, the thriller Paranoia, and the 3D re-release of Star Wars: Revenge of the Sith. The film will be released in 2D, 3D, and IMAX 3D.
