SDCC 2013: Gravity panel

Could an astronaut survive in space removed from his spacecraft? One of the few filmmakers capable of bringing this question to life could be Children of Men‘s Alfonso Cuarón.

Director Alfonso Cuarón, producer David Heyman and star Sandra Bullock (in her first Comic-Con appearance) comprised Saturday’s San Diego Comic-Con panel to answer that question.

Cuarón described the story of Gravity as being about two astronauts stranded in space, and that the entire shows the faces of only Bullock an her co-star George Clooney. The director wants the audience to feel as if they’re really floating in space, so he sought to create a truly immersive experience. Before rolling a clip, he noted that in the trailer, the marketing tam used loud explosions, yet there’s no sound in space, so those sounds aren’t included in the actual film.

SDCC 2013: Entertainment Weekly Visionaries panel

Day one of San Diego Comic-Con was host to a meeting of three of the best directors working today, as Entertainment Weekly brought fans a discussion of all things movies with their “Visionaries” panel. On hand to discuss their work was Edgar Wright (The World’s End, Scott Pilgrim Vs The World), Alfonso Cuaron (Gravity, Harry Potter and the Prisoner of Azkaban), and Marc Webb (Amazing Spider-Man).

The panel was a chance to hear the directors talk about the process of their current films. Cuaron spoke at length about the issues they had simulating the zero G conditions needed to film Gravity, including creating a special room that was just an empty box that a camera would move around in. He also talked about how Gravity stars George Clooney and Sandra Bullock would try to imitate the director’s Mexican accent (he said though that they sounded more Cuban than Mexican). Cuaron explained how Steven Spielberg’s Duel was a big influence on Gravity.

Webb also spoke of similar issues that went into the filming of the Amazing Spider-Man 2. Webb talked about using Electro as a villain not just because of his powers, but also because it forces Spider-Man to think of creative ways to defeat him. Webb was also excited to show off the visuals of Electro, which is something that drove him to use him as the villain. Webb then spoke to how the documentary Fog of War influenced Amazing Spider-Man 2.

Wanted

UPDATE: Entertainment Weekly has a follow-up to this story. Jolie’s people have revealed that she has also passed on Gravity as well and that WB still hasn’t even confirmed whether that movie is set up with them. Could be all smoke and mirrors, but that’s the update!

Many people have expected a sequel to Timur Bekmambetov‘s assassin-fest, Wanted, for a while now, but sadly, it looks as though this will not be happening.

Vulture is reporting that star Angelina Jolie has decided to walk away from Wanted 2 in order to do another film called Gravity, which is directed by the great Alfonso Cuarón. Jolie was attached to star in both films for Universal, but they decided to drop Gravity, which was then picked up by Warner Brothers. This is where Jolie, clearly looking for the more challenging, awards-possible role, followed it and left Wanted 2 in the dust and Universal deciding to scrap the project completely.

This may anger fans of Wanted who really hoped to see a sequel, but in all honestly, if you have to choose between the two just knowing the basic premise and the director, it’s a crystal clear decision to make.
