I very rarely shill for movies and say you absolutely have to see something in theaters.
Chances are you’ve got a pretty nice flat screen TV and some times it’s just not worth the theater experience of talkative people, crying babies, that goof that is seemingly oblivious that yes, that’s your chair they’re kicking and the brain donor who thinks it’s perfectly acceptable to check their phone throughout the film.
So yeah, going to the movies just isn’t as awesome as it should be sometimes. But every so often, there’s a film that the home viewing experience just doesn’t do justice to. That would be “Gravity.”
And lucky you, Warner Bros. is putting it back in theaters so you can experience the film the way it was meant to be viewed. On the big screen in all of its magnificence. Here’s the official statement from Warner Bros.
Following months of overwhelming critical and audience acclaim and numerous year-end awards, Warner Bros. Pictures is bringing Alfonso Cuarón’s cinematic achievement “Gravity” back to big screens nationwide. The film, which stars Sandra Bullock and George Clooney, will be re-released on more than 900 screens on January 17,2014, it was announced today by Dan Fellman, President, Domestic Distribution, Warner Bros. Pictures.
Originally released on October 4, 2013, “Gravity” instantly became a favorite of both critics and audiences. It has since become one of the most honored films of the year, most recently bringing a Golden Globe Award for Best Director to Alfonso Cuarón. The film has also received 11 BAFTA Award nominations and 10 Critics’ Choice Award nominations, both including Best Picture, Best Director and Best Actress (Bullock).
It has also won Best Picture awards from several prestigious critics organizations, including the Los Angeles Film Critics Association, and has been included on395 critics’ and critics groups’ top ten lists, as well as being named one of the AFI’s ten best films of the year. It was also announced as the year’s best reviewed film by the website Rotten Tomatoes.
So if you wanted to, but somehow never got around to it, you get another chance to see the 2013 film that absolutely is worth the 3D prices and braving the theaters. Don’t miss it this Friday!
