Alfonso Cuaron’s astronaut thriller, starring Sandra Bullock and George Clooney, to be released in 3D, 2D and Imax.

Gravity has been confirmed for UK release on November 8, 2013.

Alfonso Cuarón’s space thriller will receive its world premiere as the opening feature of the 70th Venice International Film Festival on August 28, where it plays out of competition.

The film stars Bullock as a medical engineer on her first shuttle mission, with a veteran astronaut (Clooney). But on a seemingly routine spacewalk, disaster strikes and the shuttle is destroyed, leaving the pair completely alone - tethered to nothing but each other and spiralling out into the blackness.

The film will be distributed worldwide in 3D, 2D and IMAX, by Warner Bros. Pictures.

Gravity will also receive a gala screening at the Zurich Film Festival (Sept 26 – Oct 6).
