(Warning: The video above contains spoilers.)
In this fascinating featurette, go behind the scenes with Gravity Director Alfonso Cuarón, Sandra Bullock, George Clooney and many other members of the production team on the making of this visually stunning film. It’s incredible to see the number of new technologies the filmmakers had to develop to capture the story on screen.
Gravity is a film about Dr. Ryan Stone (Sandra Bullock), a brilliant medical engineer on her first shuttle mission with veteran astronaut Matt Kowalsky (George 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.
