George Clooney Wrote The Most Controversial Scene In Gravity
Clooney, to his credit, isn’t exactly some diva leading man who simply wanted to insert himself into another scene (though I doubt Warner Bros. had ANY issue bringing this A-lister back into what’s essentially a two-actor stage play). He’s an Oscar-nominated director with a string of pedigreed dramas on his resume. And I commend him for offering advice to Cuaron … and to Cuaron for actually taking it.
Gravity's Creators Explain The 'Learning Curve' Of Weightlessness
As many incredible technological and visual achievements the film features, however, Cuaron doesn’t want people to solely focus on them. Instead, all of those leaps forward were made because they were what the story needed in order to be told visually. Asked about balancing the sound, visual design and atmosphere, the director said that it was when all three came together to help convey the emotional journey that it was most important.
Gravity's Sound Design Featurette: How Did They Capture The Vacuum Of Space?

Gravity Looking Strong In Online Ticket Sales
Movie studios have traditional tracking numbers, which can give them ideas weeks ahead of time how their films will perform when they finally open. And while we occasionally get glimpses of those in the press, we mostly rely on something a lot more public and people-oriented: pre-sales at online ticket sellers like Fandango and MovieTickets.com. Fandango in particular is good about sharing their data, and when they promote strong sales, it usually indicates a hit its on its way.
The Gravity You Didn't See, Starring Natalie Portman, Robert Downey Jr. And Many More
Alfonso Cuaron's Gravity opens in sneak previews tonight and everywhere tomorrow, and as you might have heard, we're pretty crazy about it. Cuaron's technical wizardry, which creates the actual feeling that you are somehow floating in space, is the big sell, but the performances from Sandra Bullock and George Clooney elevate the film to some surprisingly emotional highs. Sure, they were cast partly because they're big names who can draw audiences, but they add a key human component to what could have just been a special effects extravaganza
Gravity IMAX Clip Explains Why The Biggest Screen Possible Is A Must
So many marketing campaigns use a variation of the recommendation “See It On The BIGGEST Screen Possible” that when a film actually deserves such an accolade, it can fall on deaf ears. Gravity deserves to be experienced on the largest IMAX screen in your town. This new clip explains why.
Alfonso Cuaron's Gravity Poised For Huge Opening Weekend
pre-release tracking for the outer space-set drama that stars Sandra Bullock and George Clooney suggests it will make somewhere between $35 to $40 million when it opens next weekend in the US. Part of this could be put down to the A-list talent attached. A portion of this estimate is being allotted to the film’s release in 3D and IMAX 3D. Aside from boosting the sense of a cinematic event, these screenings also mean higher ticket prices.

Early Reviews For Gravity Call It 'Astonishing' And 'A Marvel'
"When I stood up as the final credit rolled, I don’t mind admitting that I immediately had to sit down again, a Bambi-like wobble coursing through my limbs, as if I'd just re-encountered gravity myself. For sheer transference of experience upon the audience, I can think of no film quite like it,"
