There was a Battlestar Galactica Episode around this same premise... I wonder how much of it was ripped off for this movie?

I'm also pretty sure of a Star Trek Voyager episode that shares a similar plotline.

Same here. CHILDREN OF MEN is a masterpiece, I can't wait to see GRAVITY.

I can't wait until it comes out, it looks like an incredible movie. However, I hope that it's Sandra in the later scene where she's being dragged across the ISS while hanging on to a Soyuz capsule because it seems a little much to have her in a similar situation twice in the same movie.

After that "Detached" trailer in July, I have been avoiding all trailers to this film. And I've to wait for an additional week till October 11 for its release here.
Some of the reasons and excuses people have given online not to watch this film seems genuine, sad and at times hilarious to me.
Many will avoid this film and then will continue to complain about the lack of original films in Hollywood. Again, this concept isn't original, but it's an original sci-fi film not based on existing properties.
I loved Children of Men and I will give Alfonso Cuaron a chance any day.

In my opinion, this doesn't classify as a sci-fi film.
Sep 5, 2013, 6:49 PM - Re: Gravity
Well the definition of science fiction is pretty broad. This is after all not a documentary about space, it's a fictitious film about space travel, so yeah that way I still consider it as a science fiction film.

Spoiler: She doesn't get saved
Seriously though, while it's visually cool and all, which I'll agree with, I have no idea what other purpose for the story will be. They've practically showed the entire plot of the film in one trailer. It's not hard to know what happens at the end of the film. It's based off of real world technology, and unfortunately, it's not very simple or cost effective for NASA to send up a vehicle, like a shuttle, to search the vast open space.....Yea...

She also finds a floating mailbox while out in space that allows her to talk to Keanu Reeves through some sort of postal time warp.

Not necessarily because if it's that also Sandra in the later part of the trailer and it takes place after the shuttle wrecking scene we see at the beginning then we know that she does get saved after the shuttle gets wrecked and she's launched into space. We know this because we see her, I think, on the ISS and later we see her, once again I think it's her, hitching a ride on the outside of a Soyuz capsule.

I'm putting this into the "diasaster survivor drama" bucket that happens to be set in Hollywood's version of earth orbit.
Sep 6, 2013, 1:05 PM - Re: Gravity
I think if it happens more than once, that she's getting launched into space, well, the realistic chances of survival are more than grim. Yes, the extended trailer shows various points in time, but the common thing is that each of those sequences, they're blowing up/falling apart and she's getting rocketed into space.
Sep 6, 2013, 1:15 PM - Re: Gravity
That does seem to have happen an awful lot in this movie and I seriously hope that's not the whole premise of the movie.
Sep 6, 2013, 1:27 PM - Re: Gravity
Well, it seems to be at this point unfortunately. I for one, don't really find the idea of watching someone float away into space for 2 hours. Artistic or not, well, yea..
Sep 7, 2013, 11:05 PM - Re: Gravity
Of course the naysayers will continue to say it's just hyperbole. Oh well, carry on.
ErikDavis: GRAVITY! GRAVITY! GRAVITY! The ultimate stuck-in-a-pickle movie. Stunning. Mindblowing. Loved it. #TIFF

adamchitwood: GRAVITY: Magnificent. Genuinely awe-inspiring. An immersive, emotional, and masterful piece of filmmaking. An incredible experience. #TIFF13
adamchitwood: A note on GRAVITY: Better to go in knowing as little as possible. 3D is essential. See on the biggest screen you can.
katerbland: GRAVITY left me literally weak-kneed. #TIFF13
katerbland: Also, as someone who doesn't care so much for 3D, I'm insanely happy that I saw GRAVITY in IMAX 3D. Highly recommend it for viewing. #TIFF13

I love space related Sci-Fi (as we probably all do here), so I'm interested in this one. Looks like a thriller !

Teaser posters are works of art by themselves !

I will be traveling across to another city for about 8 hours to watch it in IMAX next month. Though it's not true IMAX, it's still bigger than usual screens here. The true dome IMAX theater is in another state, contemplating that travel as well.
Sep 9, 2013, 10:38 AM - Re: Gravity
It certainly does but I'm concerned by all of the scenes in the trailer of Sandra Bullock being launched out into space, first after the shuttle gets smacked and she has to release from the arm, then later we see her hitching a ride on the outside of a Soyuz flying by the ISS. I really do hope that this movie isn't just Sandra getting knocked out into space repeatedly.
Sep 10, 2013, 7:01 AM - Re: Gravity
Riceball, I don't really understand why you're worrying here, a trailer is just a trailer. (I'm not sure it's Bullock dressed as a russian astronaut that's about to be hit by the solar panels)
More important, Alfonso Cuaron isn't Michael Bay... so don't expect the usual Hollywood crap and all its non sensic situations, have faith !
