'Gravity' NYC Premiere in Dolby Atmos

The critically lauded Alfonso Cuarón-directed feature, starring Sandra Bullock and George Clooney, will be the first to be heard in Dolby® Atmos™ at the New York venue.
Warner Bros. Pictures’ “Gravity” will have its New York premiere at the AMC Lincoln Square on Tuesday, October 1. Stars Sandra Bullock and George Clooney will join director/screenwriter Alfonso Cuarón for the special screening of the film, which has already garnered overwhelming acclaim both in the U.S. and abroad.

The event will also be attended by producer David Heyman and screenwriter Jonás Cuarón, and an array of industry luminaries, to be announced.  The screening will begin at 7:00 p.m., with red carpet arrivals beginning at 6:00 p.m.

“Gravity” will be the first  motion picture to screen in Dolby®  Atmos™ at the AMC Lincoln Square, which is being specially equipped for the premiere.  Dolby Atmos has rapidly become the preferred sound format of top filmmakers, major studios and exhibitors the world over. 

Alfonso Cuarón stated,  “Just as 3D offers added visual dimension, Dolby Atmos creates a virtual reality of sound, which fully immerses the audience in the aural journey.  There is no sound in space, so we incorporated music as an integral element of the movie.

The music was composed  and designed for a surround experience—different harmonies emerging from the different speakers around the room, constantly moving, crashing and blending to create a dynamic experience.  A special sound mix was created for Dolby Atmos, taking full advantage  of the amazing nuance, spread and separation of the speakers on the ceiling and the total range of all the speakers in the room.  Dolby Atmos is the sound experience I have always dreamed of.”

 Academy Award®  winners Sandra Bullock (“The Blind Side”) and George Clooney (“Syriana”) star in “Gravity,” a heart-pounding thriller that pulls you into the infinite and unforgiving realm of deep space.  The film was directed by Oscar®  nominee Alfonso Cuarón (“Children of Men”).

Dr. Ryan Stone (Bullock) is a brilliant medical engineer on her first shuttle mission, with veteran astronaut Matt Kowalski (Clooney) in command.  But on a seemingly routine mission, disaster strikes.  The shuttle is destroyed, leaving Stone and Kowalski completely alone—tethered to nothing but each other and spiraling out into the blackness.  The deafening silence tells them they have lost any link to Earth…and any chance for rescue.  As fear turns to panic, every gulp of air eats away at what little oxygen is left.  But the only way home may be to go further out into the terrifying expanse of space.

“Gravity” was written by  Alfonso Cuarón & Jonás Cuarón, and produced by Alfonso Cuarón and David Heyman (the “Harry Potter” films).  Chris deFaria, Nikki Penny and Stephen Jones served as executive producers.

The  behind-the-scenes team includes multiple Oscar®-nominated  director of photography Emmanuel Lubezki (“Children of Men,” “The New World”); production designer Andy Nicholson (art director “Alice in Wonderland”); editors Alfonso Cuarón and Mark Sanger (VFX editor “Children of Men”); and costume designer Jany Temime  (the “Harry Potter” films).  The visual effects were handled by Oscar®-nominated  visual effects supervisor Tim Webber (“The Dark Knight”).  The music was composed by Steven Price (“Attack the Block”). 

Warner  Bros. Pictures Presents an Esperanto Filmoj/Heyday Films Production, an Alfonso Cuarón Film, “Gravity.”  Opening nationwide on October 4, 2013, the film will be released in 3D and 2D and IMAX®,  and will be distributed worldwide  by Warner Bros. Pictures, a Warner Bros. Entertainment company.  This film has been rated  PG-13 for intense perilous sequences, some disturbing images and brief strong language.
