Movies New Featurette Explains Why GRAVITY’s 3D Isn’t A Gimmick written by Justin Bolger September 23, 2013 With only eleven days until GRAVITY is released to theaters, Warner Brothers today released a new featurette for the Alfonso Cuaron film. In the featurette, viewable below, Cuaron is joined by Sandra Bullock and producer David Heyman. The trio offer their thoughts on GRAVITY’s purposeful use of 3D to enhance the film and immerse the audience in the experience of the characters. It’s nice to know that there’s a reason for the 3D of the film, and that it wasn’t put there strictly to up the movie’s total box office haul. I’m really looking forward to seeing this one next week in IMAX 3D. GRAVITY opens October 4.

Does it enhance the experience?” the better. If a reviewer wrote something like “The color is good.” these days without any additional explanation, it would be a weak review. 3D has to get to the point where it’s used purposefully with the director’s intent being behind it, rather than being shipped off to be post-converted by a random group of techs.
