quote:Um, yea. . . I don't know what I was thinking when I typed that. After watching Children of Men yesterday (not for the first time), I re-watched the trailer for Gravity, and now I can't fricking wait to see it! It's crazy to think that this is Cuaron's first film since CoM.
Gravity looks pretty dumb to me.
According to Guillermo del Toro, Cuarón and his collaborators (including Children of Men cinematographer Emmanuel Lubezki) consulted filmmakers like David Fincher and James Cameron for help with their plans, because they were “so insane,” and Cameron said “look, you’re about five years into the future … it’s too early to try anything like that.” Yet Del Toro says they pulled it off.
