Our first reaction after watching this trailer: this is what 3D was made for.
On the surface, Alfonso Cuaron’s ‘Gravity’ seems like it could be a major contender for the 2014 Oscars. Lead actors George Clooney and Sandra Bullock each already have Oscars on their shelves. Cuaron, himself, has been nominated three times (for ‘Children of Men’ and ‘Y Tu Mama, Tambien’) and appears to be an Academy favorite. Bu,t does Warner Bros. view ‘Gravity’ as an awards contender, or as a white-knuckle sci-fi thriller from a masterful filmmaker with two A-list stars at his disposal?
News that dropped this morning points to the former.
The hype from 'Arrested Development' season 4 seems to have largely died down, whether by problems inherent to Netflix's all-at-once model or the mediocre reception of the new episodes, but series creator Mitch Hurwitz still has plenty to say on the revived series' past, present and future. For instance, did you know a gag cut from the season could have starred Hollywood A-lister George Clooney?
On a seemingly routine spacewalk, disaster strikes. The shuttle is destroyed, leaving two astronauts completely alone–tethered to nothing but each other and spiraling out into the blackness.
Everything we've heard about Brad Bird's 'Tomorrowland' has been speculation. The George Clooney-starring, Damon Lindelof-scripted project has been under tight lock and key and with plot details scarce, everyone all over the internet has made their guess about what its about, with theories ranging from Walt Disney to UFOs. Now, it looks like the first actual plot details have emerged!
One of the conspiracy theories going around in the wake of 'Star Wars - Episode 7' news was that Brad Bird was secretly working on it already and that the Damon Lindeloff-penned script for '1952' was actually the new 'Star Wars.' This seems untrue at this point, and unless this is the greatest hoax of all time, it seems all the more unlikely as George Clooney is now in talks to play the lead in '1952.'
