Sandra Bullock/George Clooney drama 'Gravity' gets new release date

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.

He replaces Mark Ruffalo, who had originally been attached to tell the story of Albany’s relationship with his young daughter Amy through the 1960s and 70s.

Sandra Bullock, George Clooney sci-fi drama 'Gravity' pushed to 2013

One of the most intriguing movies of 2012 is now one of the most intriguing movies of 2013. Gravity, the 3-D sci-fi drama starring Sandra Bullock and George Clooney as astronauts stranded in open space, has been pushed from its Nov. 21 release to 2013 by Warner Bros., EW has confirmed.

The studio remains bullish on the movie, director Alfonso Cuarón’s first film since his highly acclaimed 2006 sci-fi drama Children of Men. But between a lack of available 3-D IMAX screens and a highly competitive holiday moviegoing season that includes a new Bond movie, the final Twilight movie, and The Hobbit, Warner Bros. execs wanted to be sure the unusual film had the best possible platform for success.

A new firm release date has not yet been set.
