Alfonso Cuarón’s Gravity is one of the most anticipated movies of 2013. The science fiction film has been in the works for a few years now, and was slated for release after last year’s Cannes Film Festival. After lukewarm early test screenings, however, Gravity was pushed back to November 2013. It appears Cuarón and his team got it right this time around, because the film is now receiving a positive response from early test screenings.
According to Ain’t It Cool News, one of their insiders recently attended a test screening for Cuarón’s Gravity. Although the visual effects were not completed in this early version, some members of the audience felt it was “Next Level,” even comparing it to Gaspar Noé’s Enter the Void. According to Stanley Boobrick from Ain’t It Cool News:
This is like if Avatar had been released in 1927 a week after The Jazz Singer. People won’t know how to comprehend what they are seeing. In short, Gravity genuinely makes you feel like you have been to space. It really, really does. And guess what? It’s beautiful, and awe-inspiring, and profound (and a little scary too), everything you thought it would be since you first thought about going to space when you were a kid.
