GRAVITY is an upcoming science fiction film directed by Alfonso Cuarón. It stars Sandra Bullock and George Clooney as astronauts trying to survive a damaged space station. Opening in Venice on August 28th puts Gravity in line for an Oscar run. Bullock and Clooney as astronauts looks odd to me, but the movie looks great.
Clooney also directed MONUMENTS MEN which comes out in December. The Academy loves their George Clooney.
