Warner Bros. Pictures’ 'Gravity' returning to wide release on 17 January

MUMBAI: Following months of overwhelming critical and audience acclaim and numerous year-end awards, Warner Bros Pictures is bringing Alfonso Cuarón’s cinematic achievement Gravity back to big screens in the US. The film, which stars Sandra Bullock and George Clooney, will be re-released on more than 900 screens on 17 January 2014, it was announced today by Warner Bros Pictures Domestic Distribution President Dan Fellman.


Originally released on 4 October 2013, Gravity instantly became a favourite of both critics and audiences. It has since become one of the most honoured films of the year, most recently bringing a Golden Globe Award for Best Director to Alfonso Cuarón. The film has also received 11 BAFTA Award nominations and 10 Critics’ Choice Award nominations, both including Best Picture, Best Director and Best Actress (Bullock). It has also won Best Picture awards from several prestigious critics organisations, including the Los Angeles Film Critics Association, and has been included on 395 critics’ and critics groups’ top ten lists, as well as being named one of the AFI’s ten best films of the year. It was also announced as the year’s best reviewed film by the website Rotten Tomatoes.


In addition, the talents behind the film have been recognised by their peers, with a Directors Guild of America Award nomination for Cuarón; a Producers Guild of America Award nomination for David Heyman and Cuarón; a Screen Actors Guild Award nomination for Bullock; a American Society of Cinematographers Award nomination for Emmanuel Lubezki; an Art Directors Guild Award nomination for Andy Nicholson; and an American Cinema Editors’ Eddie Award nomination for Cuarón and Mark Sanger.


Gravity has also been a smash hit at the box office, earning more than $670 million worldwide and counting, with most moviegoers opting to view it in 3D. In making the announcement, Fellman stated, “We are thrilled by the many accolades for Gravity, which has generated renewed word-of-mouth and interest in seeing the film, whether for the first time or to experience it again. We wanted to give audiences everywhere another opportunity to see it the way it was meant to be seen—on the big screen.”


Academy Award winners Sandra Bullock (The Blind Side) and George Clooney (Syriana) star in Gravity, a heart-pounding thriller that pulls one into the infinite and unforgiving realm of deep space. The film is directed by Oscar nominee Alfonso Cuarón (Children of Men).
