Gravity - 'Experience The 3rd Dimension' Featurette
Reported by Outsiders - 03:17 PM 2013.09.24
Enthusiasm for 3D movies has largely declined this year. But filmmaker Alfonso Cuaron's astronaut survival thriller "Gravity" might be the in-your-face spectacle that 3D fans have been waiting for, and perhaps will renew interest in the much-debated theater gimmick.
In this new featurette (above), Cuaron appears alongside his producers and star Sandra Bullock, detailing his vision of the movie and how 3D tricks helped incorporate an immersive experience: "We wanted to be realistic," says Cuaron. "And YES, pump it up a bit here and there when we have some excitement going on." You'll see if the three-dimensional "excitement" gets your blood pumping when the film opens next week, October 4th.
GRAVITY stars Sandra Bullock as 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. But the only way home may be to go further out into the terrifying expanse of space.
