Moviegoers are getting another chance to see one of the top movies of 2013 the way it was meant to be seen. IMAX Corporation and Warner Bros. Pictures, today announced that Alfonso Cuarón’s “Gravity”™, one of the most popular films ever offered in IMAX® 3D, will be returning to domestic IMAX theatres starting January 31st.
Cuarón’s sci-fi thriller, which stars Sandra Bullock and George Clooney, has been a critical and commercial hit, grossing nearly $700 million at the global box office, while receiving 10 Academy Award® nominations including Best Picture. Demand for the film has been particularly high in IMAX 3D. “Gravity” was the highest-grossing IMAX release of 2013, both domestically and globally. It’s also the 3rd most popular IMAX DMR® film of all time worldwide.
According to this writer’s alter ego, the Capital District Movies Examiner:
The question that often arises with 3D movies is whether it’s worth paying the heftier ticket prices to see it that way. In the case of “Gravity,” the answer has to be an unequivocal yes. The movie should be seen in the theaters, it should be seen in 3D, and on the largest screen possible. “Gravity” is available in IMAX 3D in selected areas, and it is worth it. Viewers who wait for Red Box will not get what the fuss was about.
“Gravity”™ was also nominated for four Golden Globes, with Cuarón winning Best Director. The Broadcast Film Critics Association awarded “Gravity”™ 7 Critics’ Choice Awards, including Best Director, Best Science Fiction or Horror Movie, Best Actress in an action film (Sandra Bullock), Best Cinematography, Best Editing, Best Visual Effects and Best Score. The Online Film Critics Society, of which this writer is a member, awarded “Gravity”™ its awards for Best Director, Best Editing, Best Cinematography, Best Sound Design and Best Visual Effects.
