Film critics have been praising Alfonso Cuaron’s latest, “Gravity,” ever since it premiered at the Venice Film Festival. But according to a Sept. 8 report from The Wrap, a real-life astronaut examined the film and gave some feedback on it, too.
“I don’t know how you guys did it,” Hadfield said.
The situation in which the characters face in “Gravity” was nothing like what Hadfield saw, he said.
“Fortunately, the five months I spent on the space station were way calmer,” he said.
Hadfield then looked over at Sandra Bullock, one of the film’s stars, and added: “And if I ever fly in space again, I want to fly with Sandra.”
During the Q&A, Cuaron also discussed the difficulties of recreating a zero-gravity atmosphere, while also focusing on the actors’ performances.
“The challenges were more for the people around me than for me,” he said, before adding, “It’s good to work with geeks.”
“Gravity” will release to U.S. theaters on Oct. 4.
