“Somebody did their homework, because everything was exactly like it was on our mission,” says Dr. Mike Massimino, a NASA astronaut who was featured in the IMAX® documentary film Hubble 3D, after seeing Gravity for the first time in IMAX® 3D.

IMAX could not be more excited to present Alfonso Cuaron’s new movie Gravity, starring Sandra Bullock and George Clooney – a sci-fi thriller like the world has never seen.
In Gravity, Dr. Ryan Stone (Sandra Bullock) and astronaut Matt Kowalski (George Clooney) are struck by disaster on a routine mission in outer space. They are left helplessly tethered together, careening into the massive black void of outer space.
Critics, fans and even astronauts are falling over one by one to the “sensorial experience” (Dir. Alfonso Cuaron) that is Gravity. The film took more than four years to produce and involved an enormous amount of research to achieve the exact feel of space, the right sense of an environment devoid of gravity. The experience will leave you with a white-knuckle grip on your seat, in the hopes you won’t go flying off into the screen.
Gravity is a movie designed to immerse you into a different world, or at least outside of this world. Director Alfonso Cuaron cherishes the opportunity for his film to be viewed in the IMAX theatres. "We wanted it to be an immersive experience, as if you're sitting in the theatre but you feel as if you're floating in space. There's no other format as immersive as IMAX," said Cuarón.
Gravity is now playing in IMAX® 3D theatres. Get your tickets today.
