The film features Bullock as Dr. Ryan Stone, a brilliant engineer on her first shuttle mission, with veteran astronaut Matt Kowalski. But on a seemingly routine spacewalk, disaster strikes. The shuttle is destroyed, leaving Stone and Kowalski 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.
The film was written by Alfonso Cuarón & Jonás Cuarón, and produced by Alfonso Cuarón and David Heyman of the Harry Potter films. Chris deFaria, Nikki Penny and Stephen Jones served as executive producers.
Opening October 4, 2013, Gravity will be released in 3D and 2D and IMAX, and will be distributed worldwide by Warner Bros. Pictures, a Warner Bros. Entertainment company.
