Last Thursday night, London celebrated the American Airlines BFI London Film Festival Gala screening of GRAVITY, which is released nationwide on 7th November 2013.
Lead actress Academy Award® winner Sandra Bullock, director Oscar® nominee Alfonso Cuarón, producer David Heyman and Oscar®-nominated visual effects supervisor Tim Webber were all in attendance.
Following from the red carpet glamour, we’ve got footage from the red carpet as well as a behind-the-scenes featurette explaining a little bit more about the characters and story of the film, called the Human Experience.
Bullock plays Dr. Ryan Stone, a brilliant medical engineer on her first shuttle mission, with veteran astronaut Matt Kowalsky (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.
