Must Watch: VFX Breakdown Shows Mind-Blowing Work on 'Gravity'

February 21, 2014


By now we hope you've seen the Best Picture nominee Gravity starring Sandra Bullock and George Clooney. If not, you'll have another chance when the film hits Blu-Ray and DVD on February 25th. But for those of us who have already seen the amazing sci-fi flick, we know how mesmerizing of a visual feast director Alfonso Cuaron put together, especially with how the film was shot. Some average moviegoers may not know this, but pretty much every single shot in the film is a special effects shot, and most of what you see isn't real. Now a visual effects reel breaks down how some of the big sequences were put together.

Here's the VFX Show & Tell reel for Alfonso Cuaron's Gravity (via The Playlist):

Gravity is directed by visionary Mexican filmmaker Alfonso Cuarón (watch our interview here), of Great Expectations, Y Tu Mamá También, Harry Potter and the Prisoner of Azkaban and the sci-fi Children of Men previously. The screenplay was written by Alfonso and his son Jonás Cuarón and the film stars Sandra Bullock and George Clooney. Warner Bros. released Gravity in IMAX theaters and 3D everywhere on October 4th, and again last month, but the film arrives on Blu-Ray and DVD on February 25th. Cool?
