The dazzling commercials for this sure-to-be box office smash proclaim that it’s going to be the summer of Gatsby. But does it live up to enormous expectations?
While there’s sure to be a division of opinions between literary purists, Luhrmann fans, and regular ol’ moviegoers, there is simply no doubt that this film is a piece of work.

Gravity is the latest “isolation” movie that follows one person’s–or in this case two people’s–terrifying battles against harsh, stark, nature.
Think Castaway or 127 Hours or any of the Twilight movies (in this case you, the audience member are the one stranded in isolation).
The difference with Gravity, starring Sandra Bullock and George Clooney, is that it takes place in space. Everything’s way more terrifying in space.
Check out the first Gravity poster:
Bullock and Clooney play Dr. Ryan Stone and Commander Matt Kowalsky, who are on a mission to space.
