Sandra Bullock is the name flying around Hollywood of late. Her new action packed ride-through-space, titled Gravity, is a film that has captured the imagination of audiences and critics alike. In this article I will take a closer look at what Sandra Bullock thought of making Gravity; the preparation, the process, and the final result.
First of all lets take a moment on Gravity, the movie its self. Gravity is an intense sci-fi journey in space, directed by man of the moment: Alfonso Curion. This film is the most visually spectacular and realistic presentation of space yet. The film is mesmerizing in its effects and astounding in its suspenseful sequences. George Clooney gives a spot on performance as Sandra's fellow astronaut. Gravity is a must see of 2013.
In a discussion Sandra Bullock describes shooting Gravity. "It was just frustrating, painful, and isolating." This makes sense, as the majority of the film was shot in alone and in tight spaces. Since Gravity was such a ground breaking film technologically, the actors were required to test several new techniques of filming. Bullock actually reported being "deathly afraid" of things she had to do during filming.
Some techniques included strapping her into a upside down hydraulic chair and being jerk around, and being hung by wires in a black nine by nine room while having objects flung at her. Sounds like a grand old time. Unfortunately to make matters worse working with George Clooney wasn't as exciting as it would seem. Sandra was recently reported to insisiting, "He's not everyone's cup of tea." When being asked about having a crush on Mr. Clooney.
In a film that the lead role was surprisingly given to a woman, Sandra Bullock performs amazingly well. With her on screen venerability and humanness, she causes Gravity to be more than just scrapes of metal flying through a beautiful space and more than George Clooney being charming and talking fast. Go see Gravity, it is well worth it. Expect to see much more of Sandra Bullock ladies and gentlemen.
