    Default Gravity.

    The director of Children of Men directs Sandra Bullock and George Clooney to float through outer space for 90 minutes? I'm on board.

    (Look up the trailers if you get a chance)

    Yeah, I'm interested mainly for the director and second for the concept (which could sink or swim depending on the director, so I'm glad a decent one is attached).

    Creates similar feelings of being buried alive -- you're trapped, the end is imminent, and you're pretty much powerless to do anything.

    The stars attached, I'm kind of indifferent to. I mean, they're decent actors -- I'm just not sure how they'll play in this movie.

    That trailer was one continuous CG shot. Amazing.

    I'm told that supposedly the whole movie has only about 4 or 5 VFX shots, but that they're all super long, like up to 20 minutes. I have no idea if that's actually true, because it sounds like a very difficult thing to do. But wow.

    If anyone could pull it off, it would be Cuaron.
    I read the first 20 minutes or so are one continuous shot.

    98% on Rotten Tomatoes (so far)? I haven't seen filmmakers pay critics this much to give such high ratings for their film since The Dark Knight.

    Now I'm scared that I'll be completely disappointed (like I was in The Dark Knight). And yeah, I don't think that the final cut is gonna have 4 or 5 fx shots. Now I'm reading something closer to 150 (which is still pretty modest by today's standards).

    Yeah, it's kind of crazy to see a score so high. And remember that they also ran it EARLY. For real dogs, the studios tend to hold the ratings close to chest, but they are very confident in this movie as they had screenings and reviews posted as early as two weeks ago.

    Jeffrey Overstreet (one critic) did not publish his review but linked to a negative/so-so review by someone else. But I haven't really heard much negative buzz.
