Warner Bros. Pictures has released an IMAX Behind the Frame featurette, which includes a discussion with director Alfonso Cuarón and NASA astronauts discuss the intense and raw cinematic experience of Gravity and the preparation that went into delivering a true-to-life space exploration. Gravity plunges audiences into a shuttle mission that goes disastrously wrong; and combines a chilling and suspenseful story with stunning imagery drawn from actual space footage from the IMAX documentary, Hubble 3D.
Gravity follows Dr. Ryan Stone (Sandra Bullock) 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.
Alfonso Cuarón and Jonás Cuarón wrote the screenplay for the film.
Gravity floats into theaters (including IMAX 3D and Real 3D) starting on October 4th.
