Did You Know?


Alfonso Cuarón and Jonás Cuarón developed the script at Universal Pictures. Universal hoped to attach Angelina Jolie to the project, but decided the film was too expensive, and put the film into turn-around. The film spent four years in development hell because the cinematography, visual effects, and realistic "story atmosphere" of vacuum were too challenging. Alfonso Cuarón had to wait for technology to catch up to his vision. That finally happened in 2009, with James Cameron's Avatar (2009). See more »


Stone has not yet found the ISS hatch while Kowalkski continually talks to her. Despite knowing she is absolutely out of air, with CO2 poisoning beginning, she stops trying to save herself to listen, and doesn't resume until he finally stops. While he might have been trying to keep her awake, he almost certainly would have had her describe what she was doing in an ongoing commentary, so he could tell if she started drifting off.

Its a work of fiction, not a documentary!!
6 March 2014 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

I have just watched this in 3D and to be honest i was somewhat blown away. The film is visually stunning and the score deserves the Oscar win it walked away with. I am not going to launch into some film critic diatribe on the scientific plausibility of the whole film as IT IS NOT A DOCUMENTARY!!!! Its a film, a work of fiction to provide 90 minutes of pure entertainment. Suspend your disbelief and just go with it as for most of us its the closest to space we will ever get. When i see the reviews that lay into this i fear that we have lost the ability to just enjoy a film for what it is rather than expect some life changing, world peace bringing, disease curing on screen miracle.
