If you've been living under a rock the past year then perhaps you have an excuse but otherwise you should be well aware of the 3D event of the year: Alfonso Cuaron's GRAVITY.

The weight of this movie (if you'll pardon the pun) is staggering. The realism. The extended shots. The effects. The 3D. So when Cuaron says he's been working years on this project, he means he has been working YEARS. And it shows.

The behind the scenes images feature Sandra Bullock and George Clooney decked out in their space suits with Bullock in a couple of underwater shots. It seems Cuaron and his team used water to simulate the weightlessness of space in some capacity. I'm not entirely sure - but it makes sense.

The featurette is from IMAX so obviously it will tout the format as a stellar way of seeing the movie and I agree. Seek out the largest 3D screen possible in your area and nail down tickets because I'm almost certain you'll want to go see this thing again.

You MAY want to avoid looking at how Cuaron has done some of these shots as they could conceivably affect the magic of the movie. Not for me, but perhaps some may feel that way so proceed with caution. Personally I love behind the scenes shots and featurettes! Perhaps it's the filmmaker in me. :-)

Enjoy the featurette!

Here's the storyline for the movie:
GRAVITY, directed by Oscar nominee Alfonso Cuaron, stars Oscar winners Sandra Bullock and George Clooney in a heart-pounding thriller that pulls you into the infinite and unforgiving realm of deep space. Bullock plays Dr. Ryan Stone, a brilliant medical engineer on her first shuttle mission with veteran astronaut Matt Kowalsky (Clooney). But on a seemingly routine spacewalk, disaster strikes. The shuttle is destroyed, leaving Stone and Kowalsky completely alone—tethered to nothing but each other and spiraling out into the blackness. The deafening silence tells them they have lost any link to Earth… and any chance for rescue. As fear turns to panic, every gulp of air eats away at what little oxygen is left. But the only way home may be to go further out into the terrifying expanse of space.

GRAVITY will be released on October 4. Yes, NEXT weekend! It's finally here...
