George Clooney and Sandra Bullock are the only actors in their new film, ‘Gravity,’ which appears to be a ‘Major Tom’ style saga.
The pair star alongside one another in sci-fi drama ‘Gravity’ which is directed and co-written by Alfonso Cuaron. The film sees them portray two astronauts working on a space station together – George finds it odd that they don’t have any other co-stars.
George said: “A satellite blows up and space junk causes damage. We go out in space suits, and she and I are tethered together, floating through space.”
“It’s a two-hander with only two actors in the whole film. It is a very odd film, really. Two people in space. No monsters. It’s more like 2001 than an action film.”
The star admitted while he was thrilled to be working alongside Sandra – who he has been friends with for 20 years – he is less than impressed with the movie being shot in 3-D.
George added in an interview with USA Today: “Sandy is the lead. And she is beautiful in it. We have known each for way over 20 years. It’s fun to work with her.”
“It is the first time I’ve been in 3-D and, hopefully, the last time. It’s not near ready yet. They just showed the first cut to the studio.”
Warner Brothers and the IMAX Corporation are planning to continue their successful relationship in 2012 with three more releases in the IMAX format that haven’t been announced yet. They include the Alfonso Cuaron’s outer space thriller Gravity, starring George Clooney and Sandra Bullock. The movie also will be released in 3D.
Gravity is scheduled to hit theaters on November 21, 2012.
I’ve posted a few weeks ago that Warner Bros. was working to get their Oscar hopefuls released in the end of this year, and probably “Extremely Loud…” will be released in December.
So, today the final dates were announced. Stephen Daldry’s “Extremely Loud & Incredibly Close“, the adaptation of the Jonathan Safran Foer novel starring Tom Hanks and Sandra Bullock, will open in select cities on Dec. 25, and go wide Jan. 20.
Alfonso Cuarón’s space thriller Gravity 3D, starring George Clooney and Sandra Bullock, has been set for Nov. 12, 2012.
Sandy is currently in London, shooting her scenes for “Gravity”. The film follows two former astronauts as they attempt to get their lives in order following a space shuttle disaster.
A week ago Sandy was photographed on set with her son and her co-star George Clooney, and yesterday she was spotted wearing a cropped brown wig. Check pictures in the gallery:
