Alfonso Cuarón's 'Gravity' is Returning to Theaters on January 17th
After landing nominations for the Directors Guild Awards, the Producers Guild Awards, and this weekend's Golden Globes, the sci-fi sensation Gravity is heading back to theaters on January 17th, according to The Wrap. The re-release will happen one day after the Oscar nominations are announced, so Warner Bros. is banking on some Oscar love to get viewers, who might have missed the film after it hit theaters in October, to see it on the big screen. And there's probably some other people who would love to see Sandra Bullock and George Clooney in space again (this writer included). But the film will have some decent competition.
On January 17th, Paramount Pictures is releasing their delayed action thriller Jack Ryan: Shadow Recruit, and there's also Universal's comedy Ride Along, which will get Kevin Hart's loyal fanbase into theaters. Horror fans will get the found footage film Devil's Due, and families can take their kids to see The Nut Job. At the very least, Gravity will serve as good alternate programming to anyone not interested in those films. Gravity will also be joined by Steve McQueen's 12 Years a Slave in some markets, because Fox Searchlight also released their contender in October, and audiences probably need a chance to see it again.
