China Film Bureau Has Given Alfonso Cuaron's GRAVITY A Release In Their Country
After weeks of speculation, Warner Bros.' Gravity is finally set to be released in China next month after the Film Bureau approved its release. Check it out...
Gravity is currently a box office hit, exceeding expectations and earning $123.4 million worldwide, but there had been questions as to whether the movie starring George Clooney and Sandra Bullock would get a Chinese release. Their quota of 34 movies for the year is nearly full and films celebrating U.S. achievements in space generally don't make the cut in China. However, the daily Beijing News confirmed today that the movie had been approved by the censors. The Film Bureau could not be reached for comment. The movie is sympathetic to China -- in one scene, Bullock's character finds refuge in a Chinese ship, and there are several nods to China's technological abilities throughout. The movie being released in China means a bigger box office gross. Have you seen Gravity? Sound off below.
[Sandra] Bullock plays Dr. Ryan Stone, a brilliant medical engineer on her first shuttle mission, with veteran astronaut Matt Kowalsky [George Clooney] in command of his last flight before retiring. But on a seemingly routine spacewalk, disaster strikes. The shuttle is destroyed, leaving Stone and Kowalsky completely alone–tethered to nothing but each other and spiraling out into the blackness. The deafening silence tells them they have lost any link to Earth…and any chance for rescue. As fear turns to panic, every gulp of air eats away at what little oxygen is left. But the only way home may be to go further out into the terrifying expanse of space.
Sandra Bullock as Ryan Stone
George Clooney as Matt Kowalsky
