Gravity is an upcoming techno-thriller film co-written, co-produced, co-edited and directed by Alfonso Cuarón. The film stars Sandra Bullock and George Clooney as surviving astronauts in a damaged space shuttle.
Cuarón wrote the screenplay with his son Jonás and attempted to develop the project at Universal Pictures. After the rights to the project were sold, the project found traction at Warner Bros. instead, and the studio approached multiple actresses before casting Bullock in the female lead role. Robert Downey, Jr. was also involved as the male lead before leaving the project and being replaced by Clooney.
Gravity was originally scheduled to be released on November 21, 2012, before being re-scheduled for a 2013 release in order to complete extensive post-production effects work. The film will be released in 3D and IMAX 3D on October 4, 2013.
Gravity is set to open the 70th Venice International Film Festival in August 2013 before being released on October 4, 2013. Its North American premiere is scheduled to be shown at the 2013 Toronto International Film Festival.
Medical engineer Dr. Ryan Stone (Sandra Bullock) is on her first Space Shuttle mission accompanied by veteran astronaut Matt Kowalsky (George Clooney), who is commanding his final expedition. During a spacewalk, debris from a satellite crashes into the space shuttle Explorer, leaving it mostly destroyed, and stranding them in space with limited air. Without means of communication with Earth, they must cooperate to survive.
