Academy Award winners Sandra Bullock (“The Blind Side”) and George Clooney (“Syriana”) star in “Gravity,” a heart-pounding thriller that pulls you into the infinite and unforgiving realm of deep space. The film was directed by Oscar nominee Alfonso Cuarón (“Children of Men”).

Bullock plays Dr. Ryan Stone, a brilliant engineer on her first shuttle mission, with veteran astronaut Matt Kowalski (Clooney). But on a seemingly routine spacewalk, disaster strikes. The shuttle is destroyed, leaving Stone and Kowalski 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.



Gravity will be released in cinemas across Australia on October 3.

Let us know your thoughts on the film.

This looks like a movie I could get my husband to come along and watch. The trailer looks great.

Thank you Culture Street for my double pass to see Gravity.

My husband and I went and watched the movie in 3D and enjoyed it. I certainly recommend seeing the movie in 3D as this type of motion movie lends itself to the 3D viewing.

The thing I enjoyed the most about Gravity was it's ability to convince me that I was actually travelling in space. Right from the beginning of the movie you quickly get the sense of isolation that comes with space travel and the absolute silence used by the director in some scenes helps to highlight this.

I thought Bullock and Clooney's performances were great but I did think that overall the movie was lacking a bit of story line and in some parts was a bit too predictable for me. I would have liked to see Clooney featured a little more in the movie too but my husband was impressed that the movie focused on Sandra Bullock!

Overall it's an enjoyable movie and I would rate it 3.5 out of 5 stars.
