  1. Gravity Dropping a “Silent Space Version” That Removes the Score for Increased Scientific Accuracy

    In space, no one can hear your Oscar-winning score.

    Warner Bros. wants to remind everyone that Interstellar isn't the only space movie that's ever tried to stick to some actual scientific reality. They're releasing a new Blu-ray of last year's Gravity with new features, including a version of the movie that removes the score to drive home the silence of space. Now there will be nothing to distract you from hours of Sandra Bullock's panicked gasping.

  3. Alfonso Cuarón Puts An Arrow through Fantastic Beasts Directing Rumors, My Heart

    It's lev-i-O-sa!

    Remember that rumor that Prisoner of Azkaban director Alfonso Cuarón might return to the Potterverse for the first Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them movie? Turns out Nikki Finke was just getting our hopes up. She and Cuarón have cut me. They've cut me deep.

  5. Watch This Trailer for Alfonso Cuarón’s Believe And Tell Us What You Think [VIDEO]

    Cautiously Optimistic

    You wouldn't know it from this trailer, which proudly trumpets only J.J. Abrams's executive producer credit, but NBC's upcoming Believe was actually co-created by Abrams and Alfonso Cuarón. Around here we're big fans of both his work and girls with superpowers, so needless to say we've been looking forward to this for a while. But the teaser... maybe it's just that it's early and I'm pre-breakfast, but it doesn't grab me like I thought it would. The show looks really generic. White dude with a troubled past rescuing people. Whoopee. But hey, trailers have been misleading before. And Jamie Chung being there pleases my Mulan-loving heart. What do you think?

  6. Going Behind-The-Scenes Of Gravity Makes Us Love Sandra Bullock Even More

    Don't Try This At Home

    Alfonso Cuarón's Gravity is amazing, but incredibly difficult to watch (what with the intense anxiety and inevitable spontaneous crying). Now, take that feeling, multiple it by a million, and that's approximately how challenging it was to actually make the film. If you didn't think Sandra Bullock deserved an Oscar before, you just might change your mind after watching this Behind-the-Scenes featurette.

  8. Gravity Could Have Been Really, Really Different

    Allow Us To Explain

    Alfonso Cuaròn's surprisingly intimate sci-fi thriller Gravity has been both a critical and box office success, generating some Oscar buzz for star Sandra Bullock. The film had a long road to its triumph, and there were a few narrow misses along the way to bringing us the movie as it exists now. Thinking of just how different Gravity could have been, or how it could have fizzled out before it even got to production, makes the film all the more amazing to watch.

  9. Gravity and Other Forces to Be Reckoned With

    Review

    Alfonso Cuarón’s ambitious Gravity does not need monsters, aliens, or traitorous humans to strike fear into viewers looking out at the empty black night. All that is required is the silent, lonely expanse of space itself; airless, without aid, and full of its own ethereal beauty. Perhaps the most intense 90 minutes I’ve spent in a theater this year, Gravity presents space itself as the true horror, a place where indifferent forces collide to spell catastrophe for any humans unlucky enough to be in their path. Despite a tendency to become overwhelmed in places by its own sentimentality (or simply by the soundtrack) Gravity is a taunt, breathtakingly arranged film that will likely leave you on the edge of your seat.

  10. Astronaut Talks About Why She Chose Long Hair in Space

    It Came From Outer Space

    Okay, we've been posting a lot about astronaut Cady Coleman and her role as a consultant on Alfonso Cuarón's Gravty, but really, when was the last time there was this much opportunity to share interviews and news stories about a female astronaut? Also there are some clips in here of Sandra Bullock being badass in the movie, so they're pretty enjoyable too. So just watch this and pretend that NASA isn't being shut down today because of an intractable Congress. Previously in Gravity

  11. Filmmakers and Astronauts on How Gravity Got So Real

    It Came From Outer Space

    Earlier this summer I mentioned Gravity in front of a friend. "Gravity?" he asked. "Yeah, you know, Gravity." Then, instead of saying "Oh, now I remember," he simply shuddered explosively. So, basically, yeah. Good job, Gravity.

    You know, part of me thinks they should ease up a bit on these trailers for Alfonso Cuarón's Gravity.

  13. Extended Gravity Trailer Gives Us Five Terrifying Minutes of Sandra Bullock Floating In Space [VIDEO]

    Don't Panic

    The new extended trailer for Alfonso Cuarón's Gravity gives us a bit more plot to go along with the terror we have come to know from previous clips. There is plenty of hurtling through space on the part of stars Sandra Bullock and George Clooney, but there is also a good hint at how their nerve racking ordeal starts, thanks to some tense radio communications with Earth. The film is set for release on October 4, 2013, and will, obviously, be in IMAX theaters and in 3D, to ensure that you feel as alone and uncertain as the characters floating in the vacuum of space as you view the truly terrifying looking thriller.

  14. New Gravity Trailer Is Terrifying, Looks Awesome [VIDEO]

    Spaaaaaaaaaaace

    When astronauts lose their tether in space, I'm not sure if us plebeians understand the real gravity of the situation. I mean, it's not like it's just a matter of space between George Clooney and Sandra Bullock. Well, actually it is, but not like that! Okay, I promise I'll stop with the puns. The most recent trailer for Alfonso Cuarón‘s Gravity (the film about Bullock-the-astronaut getting stranded alone in the vast void of space) looks like the right combination of pure terror, tense thrills, and the awesome beauty of space. How can you astro-NOT see this? That one was too bad, even for me. (via ThinkMcFlyThink)

  15. Alfonso Cuarón on Having a Lady Lead in Gravity

    If we got angry about this kind of thing we'd be angry all the time

    When I finished the script, there were voices that were saying, 'well, we should change it to a male lead.' Obviously they were not powerful enough voices, because we got away with it. But the sad thing is that there is still that tendency. - Alfonso Cuarón, co-writer, co-producer, and director of Gravity. Another day, another creator of content who gets pushback when they deliberately create a lady lead in a medium or genre where there's a decided lack. And, as Women and Hollywood points out, this isn't pushback against some unknown indie film or gamemaker: it's a multiple-Academy Award nominated writer and director. Previously in Gravity

  19. The Trailer for Alfonso Cuarón’s Gravity Is the Most Intense 90 Seconds You’ll See All Day [VIDEO]

    No. No no no no no no no. no.

    Warning: You might not want to watch the trailer for Alfonso Cuarón's Gravity, starring Sandra Bullock as an astronaut who gets stranded in outer space, if you suffer from claustrophobia or agoraphobia. Seriously. I take back what I said in the headline: "Intense" doesn't do this one justice. "Pants-soilingly terrifying" is more fitting. This is how you make a trailer, everyone.

  20. NBC Greenlights Believe, a Cuarón/Abrams Collaboration About 10-Year-Old Superheroine

    i'll just leave this here

    When Alfonso Cuarón and J.J. Abrams get together to work on a television show, you shouldn't be surprised that it gets picked up. But, nevertheless, it's pretty cool that Believe will be making its way to our screens, featuring, as it does, a prescient, telekinetic ten-year-old who picks out her own new guardian when her old ones can't do the job anymore. And then it's all just traveling around, doing good deeds while on the run from them. You know, them.
