“Life in space is impossible.“
Directed by Alfonso CuarÃ³n (Children of Men), Gravity stars Sandra Bullock as Dr. Ryan Stone, a medical engineer on her first Space Shuttle mission. She is accompanied by Matt Kowalsky (George Clooney), a veteran astronaut on his final space voyage.
While performing maintenance on the Hubble Space Telescope, disaster strikes. The destruction of a Russian Spy satellite in Earth’s orbit has created a debris storm that is rapidly approaching the Space Shuttle Explorer. Mission Control (Ed Harris) urges the astronauts to complete their work and return to the craft, but it’s too late.
A hail of space junk crashes into Explorer, sending Dr. Stone and Kowalsky spiraling, untethered, into the vastness of outer space. With a dwindling supply of oxygen and no means of communication with Earth, the astronauts venture further out into the infinite to make contact with a habitable Chinese satellite.
