Burbank, CA, January 17, 2014 – Experience space like never before in the Academy Award®-nominated “Gravity,” arriving onto Blu-ray 3D Combo Pack, Blu-ray Combo Pack, DVD and Digital HD on February 25 from Warner Bros. Home Entertainment. A heart-pounding thriller starring Academy Award winners Sandra Bullock (“The Blind Side”) and George Clooney (“Syriana”), and stunningly directed by Academy Award-nominee Alfonso Cuarón, “Gravity” pulls you into the infinite and unforgiving realm of deep space.



“Gravity” was written by Alfonso Cuarón and Jonás Cuarón and produced by Alfonso Cuarón and David Heyman (the “Harry Potter” films), with Chris deFaria, Nikki Penny and Stephen Jones serving as executive producers.



“Gravity” will be available on Blu-ray 3D Combo Pack for $44.95 and on Blu-ray Combo Pack for $35.99. Both include a digital version of the movie on Digital HD with UltraViolet.* Fans can also own “Gravity” in Digital HD on February 25 via purchase from digital retailers.



“Gravity” has become one of the most honored films of the year, garnering 10 Academy Award nominations**, including Best Motion Picture of the Year, Performance by an Actress in a Leading Role – Sandra Bullock, and Achievement in Directing – Alfonso Cuarón. The film has also received 11 BAFTA Award nominations and 10 Critics’ Choice Award nominations, both including Best Picture, Best Director and Best Actress (Bullock)**. Cuarón recently received a Golden Globe Award for Best Director. “Gravity” has also won Best Picture awards from several prestigious critics organizations, including the Los Angeles Film Critics Association, and has been included on 395 critics’ and critics groups’ top ten lists, as well as being named one of the AFI’s ten best films of the year. It was also announced as the year’s best reviewed film by the website Rotten Tomatoes.



SYNOPSIS



Dr. Ryan Stone (Bullock) is a brilliant medical engineer on her first shuttle mission, with veteran astronaut Matt Kowalski (Clooney) in command. But on a seemingly routine mission, disaster strikes. The shuttle is destroyed, leaving Stone and Kowalski completely alone—tethered to nothing but each other and spiraling out into the darkness. 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.

I missed it in the theater, but I heard the 3D and the space shots were absolutely breathtaking. I'm certainly looking forward to it.

Just so I do not forget, I will place it on order right now oh and yes I ordered through HTS.
I have always loved space and were I much younger and of course much wealthier I would consider a ride up there. Fascinating to the extreme or....is Capricorn One correct ? NAAHHHH

Keeping character count down and focusing on what is happening in the here and now to two almost helpless humans should be a nail biter if done correctly, I hope.

The $45 was listed in the first post...retail price. Good to hear that amazon is charging a more reasonable price.
ahhh, yeah, that's just msrp... most 3D titles are between $40-$50 msrp, but 99% of retailers (but Barnes and Noble type stores) always have more reasonable standard prices.

I seen it and loved it ... It's a must have for HT! Full disclosure my wife didn't like it at all. She's not a Sci Fi fan!

Having seen the movie in Dolby Atmos twice, where dialogue came from above, behind and all around the audience, I'm surprised (and disappointed) that the Blu-ray is 5.1 and not 7.1 channels.

it's interesting and kind of puzzling, BUT Alfonso was actually directly involved with the making of the 5.1 mix for the home release so we should still be well pleased I'm imagining.

I have read a little about and seen the trailers, but I simply cannot get excited about it. I really care nothing about seeing it... don't even care to rent it. It just sounds and looks like it is a boring movie with a very predictable plot.

I have not seen it yet but everyone I know that has says its far better than they expected it to be and at times very suspenseful.
