Box office writers are already sharpening their puns. Can “Gravity” defy the box office. Will Vince Vaughn’s “The Delivery Man” drop off the dollars? Will “Sin City: A Dame to Kill For” slay the competition?
Oh, the tension!
As Collider’s Adam Chitwood reminds us, Warner Bros. had originally pulled the movie from its 2012 schedule entirely. There’s not a lot known about this movie, but Collider has a synopsis, which is:
Sandra Bullock plays Dr. Ryan Stone, a brilliant medical engineer on her first shuttle mission, with veteran astronaut Matt Kowalsky (George 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.
Sounds hilarious! Is there a chimp involved? There’d better be.
