    I have not heard anything about this. The trailer is intense.

    I look forward to any film directed by Cuaron.

    I saw this on The Great Gatsby and it looks like it could be good.

    Six years since "Children of Men" which remains one of the best SciFi films of it's era.

    The trailer in 3D (in front of "The Great Gatsby" was pretty impressive.

    I just checked Rottentomatoes and holy moly, 97% fresh so far. I may actually have to go see this one alone (I hate going to the movies alone).

    My wife and I are lucky if we get to theaters more than once a year - we both agree that we WILL be seeing this if not this weekend, then definitely next weekend. Can't wait.

    My wife is not into sci-fi, but we both want to see this.

    We've already got our tickets to see this in 3D IMAX on Saturday. Driving 35 miles across town to see it on a real IMAX screen, not one of those fake repurposed jobs. Can't wait.

    We won't be seeing it until next weekend, so I guess I'd better avoid this thread for a while.

    Going to have to try to convince my usual movie going group to see this in 3D. We usually avoid it but this seems like this will make excellent use of the format.

    My short Gravity review:

    WOW!

    (and yes, see it in 3D.)

    I wasn't overly impressed with "Children of Men". It was good, but it didn't really floor me. Still, the trailer for this was impressive. I definitely have to go see this.

    **** out if ****Easily the best film of the year so far for me. Every few years a film comes along that advances filmmaking into the next level. GRAVITY is that film. From the opening shot to the last shot, the film is an unrelenting terrifying journey. The fx are amazing. You will feel as though you are in space. Technically it is excellent across the board. And the music is great too enhancing the suspense superbly. Bullock and Clooney are terrific, especially Bullock. I can't remember a film that had me literally on the edge if my seat for the entire running time. It is truly that awesome. Oh and SEE IT IN IMAX 3D!!Seriously, if any film needs to be seen in that format, Gravity is that film. WOW is right!I can't wait to see it again.

    I have a question relating to that- does this movie use a lot of shaky cam? I get pretty motion sick from it in a regular theater so I imagine if I see shaky cam in IMAX, I'll probably puke on the person sitting in front of me.

    I don't know about " shaky cam" but there is a lot of vertigo inducing visual effects in the film. My wife said she was a bit queasy in the beginning but got used to it. YMMV

    I think I will sit more towards the back of the theater since that seems to lessen the motion sickness in regular theaters.

    I always sit on the last three rows of a 3D film. Those are the best seats for the 3D effects.
