Alfonso Cuaron's Gravity pushed to 2013

3 years agoby:
100%

Damn every single person responsible for Alfonso Cuaron's GRAVITY being pushed from November of this year to an unspecified date in 2013. Damn you all!

I am sure the technical needs of the film are responsible for this delay. Executive producer Chris DeFaria had this to say about how the film is composed.

According to DeFaria, Gravity opens with a continuous 17-minute shot that sets the stage for the protagonist’s (Sandra Bullock) desperate attempt to stay alive and return to Earth after the aforementioned asteroid shower wipes out her fellow astronauts – save for a co-pilot (George Clooney), who was away at the time. More so, the film as a whole runs for about two hours and has only 156 shots total (ie. around 46 seconds/shot, on average), including several that run “six, eight, 10 minutes long.”

Holy crap. If that is true, this is going to rival the amazing long takes Cuaron created in CHILDREN OF MEN.

And this is how Cuaron actually got the scene made.

The official synopsis for GRAVITY: Bullock plays Dr. Ryan Stone, a brilliant medical engineer on her first shuttle mission, with veteran astronaut Matt Kowalsky (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.

This movie needs to be released and done properly, so if waiting until 2013 is what Cuaron needs, I will abide. But if this pushes to 2014, I will lose my cool.

Extra Tidbit: If Cuaron pulls this off, they better start polishing his directing Oscar.

This film was starting to feel more and more like this decade's DON QUIXOTE....But unlike that, thankfully we'll see it someday. I have no problem waiting till 2013 as long as it actually gets release (and be perfect, but thats a given).

If he exceeds his work in Children of Men I might die watching it.

Noooooo.... I wanted 2012 to be epic as possible! Then again, it would have been probably for the better, as this movie surely would have been lost in the shuffle. Just look at Children of Men back in 2006! So criminally overlooked.

Good, I'm sick of all that quick cut, shaky cam garbage. This is the way to go.

2012 already feels crowded with so many awesome releases like Dark Knight Rises, Skyfall, Django Unchained, The Hobbit, etc. I don't mind waiting a little longer, especially if it means it'll help this film and Cuaron have a hit.

I want to see this movie badly, but the story feels very similar to the Ray Bradbury short story Kaleidoscope from The Illustrated Man. It is about a few astronauts who are floating off into space to their death after their rocket is destroyed. As they are shooting to their death they each reflect on their lives. Some go insane, others are content.

Aaawww

He's my favorite director. I love seeing behind the scenes photos and footage of him, he always looks so happy.

I hope it's an early 2013 release.
