“Gravity” is a new sci-fi film starring George Clooney and Sandra Bullock. Filmed in 3D from “Children of Men” director Alfonso Cuaron, the story centers on two surviving astronauts left stranded in orbit outside the craft during a space walk after space debris crashes into their space shuttle destroying it.
This will be Clooney’s second attempt at making a successful outer space sci-fi film and Bullock’s first venture into Earth orbit. Clooney starred in the remake of “Solaris” in 2002 which was panned by critics and moviegoers alike. This one appears to be on the right track for being a hit.
“Gravity” will make its big onscreen debut at this year’s 70th Venice International Film Festival in Italy on August 28. It was shot on location at Lake Powell, Arizona in the United States and at the Shepperton Studios in the United Kingdom.
The U.S. theatrical release date has been announced for October 4, 2013.
