I’m really excited about Alfonso Cauron’s Gravity, but I’m starting to wonder if Sandra Bullock has more yells and screams than actual dialogue in it.
A new featurette for the film is out that addresses the part of the film I was least interested in, 3D. Personally, I am not really a fan of the technology. It makes the movie visibly darker and, because I don’t have perfect vision, the glasses tend to give me a headache.
That said, this video actually makes a compelling argument for its use 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. But the only way home may be to go further out into the terrifying expanse of space.
