“Gravity” Premieres To Strong Reviews

“Gravity” premieres tonight as the opening selection at the Venice Film Festival, and THR’s Todd McCarthy enthuses: ‘George Clooney and Sandra Bullock star as astronauts in Alfonso Cuaron’s jaw-dropping space thriller. At once the most realistic and beautifully choreographed film ever set in space, “Gravity” is a thrillingly realized survival story spiked with interludes of breath-catching tension and startling surprise. Not at all a science fiction film in the conventional sense, Alfonso Cuaron‘s first feature in seven years has no aliens, space ship battles or dystopian societies, just the intimate spectacle of a man and a woman trying to cope in the most hostile possible environment across a very tight 90 minutes.’ A 90-minute movie from Hollywood?
