In a different universe we’d be seeing Alfonso Cuaron‘s highly-anticipated sci-fi epic Gravity in less than a week, but the film was pushed to a vague 2013 slot with zero word from Warner Bros. outside of a recent MPAA rating. With the project now undergoing its third test screening in Los Angeles as of this week, we continue to dig for details due to the lack of announcements — and something worth noting popped up this morning.
Buried in a press release in which WB and IMAX announced they’d partner for up to 20 films released in the format over the next few years, the companies gave a look at their 2013 slate. In this exact, precise order they listed the following films: Jack the Giant Slayer (March 1, 2013); Man of Steel (June 14, 2013); Pacific Rim (July 12, 2013); 300: Rise of an Empire (August 2, 2013); Gravity; Seventh Son (October 18, 2013); The Hobbit: The Desolation of Smaug (December 13, 2013).
From a quick glance, one can see they placed Gravity in between August and October, one of the few breaks in the WB schedule. We predicted as much with the last announcement and if this indeed comes to fruition, it would be a fitting place for the reportedly esoteric film starring Sandra Bullock and George Clooney. If they went for a September bow, this could also mean a fall festival debut, so as we await any news at all from WB regarding the project, we’ll update with confirmation.
Is this a smart possible release window for Gravity?

Often hitting the expected notes, coming home movies have become very familiar by this point. Writer-director Claudia Myers‘ Fort Bliss, however, stands apart in a few ways. Following a mother, played by Michelle Monaghan, the story tells of her return home as she has trouble picking up where she left off with her child. It’s the kind of […]
