EW can confirm that Alfonso Cuarón’s Gravity — a sci-fi epic starring Sandra Bullock and George Clooney — will finally come to Earth Oct. 4, 2013.
The 3-D film, Cuarón’s first since 2006′s Children of Men, finds Clooney and Bullock playing astronauts who are stranded when their space station is damaged. Gravity was originally scheduled for a Nov. 21, 2012 release before being pushed back last May to avoid competition from blockbusters like The Hobbit: An Unexpected Journey and Skyfall.
With its new release date, Gravity will now be going up against the 3-D conversion of Revenge of the Sith, Robert Rodriguez and Frank Miller’s Sin City sequel, and Paranoia, a thriller starring Hunger Games actor Liam Hemsworth.
