Gravity is one of the most anticipated movies of 2013. This video above highlights how much 3D contributes not just on the viewing experience, but also on the characters, the earth as seen from space being one.
According to Alfonso Cuarón, the movie’s director, “we didn’t want it to be 3D for the sake of fake excitement.” Chris Parks, Stereoscopic supervisor, echoed those sentiments, adding “we use 3D to support the story, covey emotion that is coming through in the action.”
As such, the team behind the movie worked to make the 3D as realistic as possible.
“From the minute you start watching this film, you can’t breathe. We’re in zero gravity so you have this weird slow-motion…you can’t control things as things are ripping by you. So with the 3D aspect of it, it’s as if though you’re in the same peril they are,” Lead actress Sandra Bullock said in the featurette.
Co-starring George Clooney, Gravity hits theaters on October 4, 2013. If you find the disaster sequence in the trailer terrifying in YouTube, just wait until you see it on the big screen in IMAX 3D.
Warcraft is a ‘Problem Movie’ Facing Difficulties
With video game movies failing miserably to light the big screen on fire like superhero flicks have, you can’t blame critics for being a bit nervous about the film adaptation of Warcraft, which is seen as a “problem movie.”
Produced by Legendary and set to be distributed by Universal, the Warcraft movie has been delayed so many times that it risked never being made. A report by Hollywood Reporter claims that Universal has major reservations about the project, citing over-involvement from property owners Blizzard and a ballooning budget as major reasons.

- Mega Man Movie in the Works by 20th Century Fox
The fact that Sam Raimi, the second director to be attached to Warcraft, departed after Blizzard supposedly insisted on trashing his script (co-written with Robert Rodat) makes matters even worse.
There are currently a plethora of video game movies on the way, including Assassin’s Creed, Uncharted, The Angry Birds Movie, Rachet and Clank, and Mega Man. As with Warcraft, successfully making the transition from the interactive world of gaming to the strictly-visual world of cinema will prove challenging for all those tites.

However, the studio will tread carefully in order to make sure the series doesn’t get too old too fast.
The next movie — Furious 8 — is expected to release sometime in 2017 and is expected to feature Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson and Kurt Russell, while Universal is in the process of finding directors for the prospective final trilogy.
