So it seems Europa Report won’t be the only space film on the silver screen this year. But, while Europa Report will take us on a thrill ride to another moon, Gravity seems like it will keep us trapped in space…literally. While I am interested in finding out how this story will end, I am uncertain if Gravity will be like the 2010 Ryan Reynold’s film Buried and keep us tethered to a single setting for the majority of the movie. Should this happen and the main characters end up dying in the end anyway I would be very disappointed. My guess is, the studio spent a great portion of their budget on pulling Sandra Bullock and George Clooney for the film to attract an audience. I think if this film were shot with lesser known actors the storyline would not hold strong enough to fill seats at the theaters. Let’s just hope the on-screen chemistry and dialogue between the two does well enough to keep this film entertaining or audiences might just drift away from the film faster than Sandra drifted from that space shuttle. Watch the trailer below to see what I mean and be sure to post a comment below to share your opinion. Do you think this will be a box office hit or does it have the makings of a blockbuster dud?
