You’ve never heard a score quite like this. Director Alfonso Cuaron’s Gravity is nothing akin to a sci-fi fantasy world, but rather depicts the stark realities of being marooned in the harshest environment known to mankind. It is a real game changer. Audiences will be given the illusion of being in space in ways that are both totally convincing and utterly visceral.
The film opened at #1, had a record setting $55 million opening weekend in the U.S. and is set for a November debut in the United Kingdom. Gravity premiered to critical acclaim at the Venice Film Festival with screenings also held at the Telluride Film Festival and the Toronto International Film Festival. The film will play this week among the highly anticipated Galas at the BFI London Film Festival.

Feature scheduled for delivery in the second half of 2014.
Award-winning Irish director Tomm Moore unveiled extensive footage from his upcoming feature Song of the Sea at a Work in Progress session of the Annecy Animation Film Festival on Friday (June 14).
Like Moore’s previous film - Oscar-nominated The Secret of Kells - the picture takes inspiration from Irish folklore, centring on the legend of the Selkies, mythological creatures that are part seal, part human.
The storyline revolves around brother and sister Ben and Saoirse, who are forced to leave their coastal home to live with their grandmother in the city following their mother’s mysterious disappearance.
When they decide to runaway and return home by sea, the voyage takes an unexpected turn - leading them into a fantastical marine world - where it becomes clear there is more to Ben’s silent sister Saoirse than meets the eye.
The $7.5m (€5.6m) film is a five-way co-production between »
Oscar-winning Irish folk musician Glen Hansard on Monday evening returned to Chicago's Millennium Park -- where he last played a show in support of Low two years ago.
Amid the foggy evening at the park's Jay Pritzker Pavilion stage, Hansard -- who leads The Frames and is one half of The Swell Season -- played songs off both last year's debut solo record "Rhythm and Repose" and was also joined on stage by Lisa Hannigan, a former member of fellow Irishman Damien Rice's band.
Hansard is a regular performer in Chicago, most recently at the Hideout Block Party last fall, and previously told HuffPost he sees the Windy City as "a city where people are quietly getting on with their work. I have always found it hugely inspiring."
Photographer (and friend of HuffPost) Joshua Mellin was on hand at Hansard's Millennium Park show and shared some of his shots »

A source said that she broke with David on Christmas Eve after only a few months together.
O'Connor first opened up to the Irish Sun about her new relationship last month.
