BREAKING MOVIE NEWS
Whether you're a fan of smart sci-fi or of Children of Men or of Sandra Bullock and George Clooney, you've got a reason to look forward to Gravity. We've had it high on our most-anticipated list before it even started shooting, and now that the first trailer has debuted online, well… can we skip summer and head straight to October?
This, I hope, will be the last Gravity story I write for CinemaBlend. This is one of those movies I need to see pure, to see clean. I don’t want the experience ruined for me by Vine videos and commercials for teasers for trailers. I want to see it in IMAX, in its entirety.
We don't know much right now about Alfonso Cuaron's Gravity, but all it takes is the barest details to get us interested-- Sandra Bullock, George Clooney and the director of Children of Men, working together on a tense drama set in outer space. The film has been kept under wraps since it went into production in 2011
Children of Men director Alfonso Cuaron, who’s still putting the finishing touches on his sci-fi thriller Gravity, could be circling Episode VIII and, possibly, Episode IX. And that’s not all. MarketSaw tosses Simon Pegg’s name back into the fire, saying they “can't say why, but let’s just say I have a strong feeling about that.”
For a while we hoped that Alfonso Cuaron's Gravity would be a player in this year's Oscar race, or at least a fall release we could look forward to at the end of this year. But back in May the film was bumped from its planned November 21 release date and into next year, with an undetermined release date and a lot of fans of the Children of Men director
The list contains "seven or eight names, all men," but the Times is only revealing three of them-- Cuaron, Babel director Alejandro Gonzalez Inarritu, and surprisingly enough, David Cronenberg, the director behind landmark genre films like The Fly and Videodrome
"Do female astronauts wear makeup?" sounds like the title of a David Sedaris book, but I think it's also a fairly legitimate question. With so much stuff to do while flying through space, I find it hard to imagine that any women engineers would have time to wake up, sit at a vanity, and apply the regular dose of lipstick, eye shadow and whatever glop is involved with the regular routine.
Unlike its predecessor, this movie would focus on one story told by one director. Nolan’s relationship with Warner is obvious, though the trade does point out that the director could pass because a Zone film might be too similar to Inception. If Nolan were to pass, Michael Bay and Alfonso Cuaron reportedly are next in line on the studio’s wish list.

Natalie Portman may not be as big a star as Jolie and hasn't carried a blockbuster film without Star Wars in the title, but even based entirely on her stellar Black Swan performance
Portman is Cuaron’s pick but the studio is nervous and has been pushing to have a bigger name to carry the movie all along. That’s why they spent months making so many
While Portman isn't necessarily the only actress with the chops to carry a movie like Gravity, she might be the only one with that combination of bankability, talent and prestige
Maybe by passing Jolie is trying to help breed a new female action hero to follow her lead. It's too bad Warner Bros. didn't trust themselves or their property enough to actually give it a shot, though now they'll have to

It goes without saying that Downey Jr.'s participation in any project is likely to make it worth seeing, and the prospect of the actor returning to drama after a hugely successful stint in comedy and action is even more intriguing
Gravity is getting the blame for Jolie bailing on the project, but really, we probably should have expected her to bounce from this long ago. Wanted was ridiculous and over-the-top and really fun
