Veteran astronaut Matt Kowalski (George Clooney), on what is slated to be his last mission to space, and his colleague Dr. Ryan Stone (Sandra Bullock), a medical engineer on her first, are marooned when a swath of debris destroys their shuttle killing every other astronaut on-and-off-board. Drifting 372 miles away from Earth and cut off from any human contact, their only hope for survival is to quickly travel to a Soviet space station in search of a usable escape module before running out of oxygen all while avoiding more lethal debris.

Stephanie Zacharek of The Village Voice writes, “Gravity is remarkable. Both lyrical and terrifying, director Alfonso Cuarón merges the two, sending us into free fall along with his characters in the kind of movie that makes you feel more connected to the world rather than less.” predicts that Gravity will earn $42M in its debut weekend. As of publishing, the movie is holding a solid 98% on with 99 reviews, only two of which are rotten.
