GRAVITY OPENS VENICE

The Venice Film Festival announced this years lineup. Twenty English language films will compete August 28- September 7.  Last year THE MASTER was the original winner, but  the award was switched after it was revealed Venice rules prohibited one film from winning too many prizes. WTF? So, the Golden Lion went to PIETA.

Although not in competition GRAVITY will open the festival. Here is a new extended clip:

 

The also lineup includes:

Terry Gilliam ‘s  THE ZERO THEOREM- The trailer was shown at Comic-Con last week, but not yet available to the public.
