New 'Gravity' IMAX Poster Goes into the Black

Warner Bros. has released the following new IMAX poster for Gravity and to my knowledge Alfonso Cuaron didn't use IMAX cameras to shoot this film, but just imagine if he had and what it would be like to see Sandra Bullock's character float off into the blackness on that massive, floor-to-ceiling screen.

I'll be seeing Gravity at the Toronto Film Festival after it premieres in Venice where it's serving as the opening night film. Gravity will then hit theaters on October 4.

Along with the IMAX poster at the bottom of the page, I've included three banners you can browse as well by clicking on the thumbnails just below.

Gravity IMAX Poster

Dr. Ryan Stone (Sandra Bullock) is 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.

    I think I like that poster.

      Yes, it makes good use of space. I don't know how to say that without it sounding like a pun.

    That's awesome. Still one of my most anticipated of the year but I still have some reservations as it looks very much high concept.

  • Harry Fuertes

    Great poster. Getting that 2001 vibe.

    Hey Brad, would you ever think of adding the Disqus commenting system to the website?

    You can choose if you want people to be able to comment with their Facebook and Twitter accounts, or restrict it to just their RopeofSilicon accounts.

    It's a much better system, where you can like comments, edit them, delete them, sort them by rating, etc. It's just an idea.

      I'm actually a huge fan of Disqus as well. I primarily like how it alerts you when you have a response to your message specifically. The only reason I don't tick off the 'Notify me of replies' box on ROS is because I don't want to get responses from everyone on an article - it floods my e-mail. But then when I do get responses to my specific post, I tend to miss them.

      Ah wells, it would be nice. But I don't think it's going to happen as the subscription process on this site is relatively new. Plus I do like some of the features associated with it like the box office estimates.

        Brad could restrict Disqus commenting for RoS accounts. I didn't know it was possible until I visited a website the other day and saw that they commented on Disqus with the website's local user accounts.

        If Brad did the same thing, I don't think it would affect the user integration on the site.

          It costs more money than I can afford to restrict it to RopeofSilicon accounts. It wouldn't affect the user integration, but I just can't afford it.

    The poster's ok but i really like the theatrical banner #3

  • H-B-P

    I am sure this movie will be "breathtaking"!!

    • andyluvsfilms

      i see what you've done there, double meaning ;-)

  • The Jackal

    I'm actually not very impressed by this poster. Don't get me wrong, it is very evocative, the image of a lone figure drifting off into the vast expanse of space; however, the black background doesn't evoke. Give me stars, dammit!

    Thems the facts
