SYNOPSIS

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 darkness. 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.

The 3D version was a day one pre-order for me. Really looking forward to seeing it... cool.gif
post #5 of 59
yup, 3d version preordered earlier this week as well.
post #6 of 59
My anticipation for this title is greater than any other title this year. I skipped it in theaters so I could wow myself with the 3D version at home, and I hope it can meet my lofty expectations! This just seems like the perfect title to mix a great story with outstanding 3D/video/audio into one larger than life movie to show off my system to myself. biggrin.gif

I'm hoping this to be an lfe feast, as it was in IMAX.
post #8 of 59
Yup. Sold my 3D player back in November for $50 so I can get the Xbox. I'm going to have a talk with microsoft...

Ditto... except for the 3D part (I don't have the capability... yet...)
Very much looking forward to this one!

This is by far the most I've looked forward to a bluray release! I can't wait to test out the black levels and 3D on my new ST60. Not to mention I'm a huge fan of Alfonso Cuaron who I believe it the MASTER of incredibly long movie shots. Children of Men, anyone?

post #11 of 59
This is the one I've been waiting for, although they are far from my two favorite actors I have to buy it and see if all the hype is true.

Does anyone else hope the 3D is in 1.78:1? Imagine the void of space filling your whole screen.

Yes but it's gotten to the point that I barely notice anymore.

I've yet to sync my glasses up with my Panny panel to try 3D eek.gif
Well actually I was waiting until it got some hours on it.

Nice! I set up a Panasonic VT65 for a family member last year and was impressed with the 3d. cool.gif The 2d was excellent as well! Enjoy your set. smile.gif

Nice! I bought a 60ST60 a few months ago. I nearly waited thinking that they will go on clearance in the spring, now you can barely find one.

Yes! I agree with James Cameron that 3D is better suited to 1.78 / 1.85 AR. In Titanic it was worth losing a tad bit of the original image for the 3D immersion. Unfortunately I do not think that will be the case here.

Thank heaven. I enjoy the 3D immersion that comes with being able to have the entire image displayed.
post #22 of 59
It is the entire image if the director releases it that way - I wasn't suggesting using a 'zoom' or anything of that sort. Of course I agree that chopping off any parts of the top or bottom of an image as some CIH systems do would be altering the director's intent and I'd prefer not to watch it that way either.
post #23 of 59
I personally prefer natively shot 1.78/1.85 3D, but I agree cropping just for 3D isn't ideal either.

It's only better suited if you have a 1.78 screen. If you have a 2.35 screen, you would prefer 3d in scope. cool.gif 3d for me at 9' wide for my scope image is MUCH more immersive vs 3d at 7' wide for my 1.78. I am just glad they are going OAR for the 3d though (I am not a fan of what they did with Titanic) no matter if it is 1.78/85 or 2.35/40.
post #25 of 59
TOE, you are probably right. Personally, In the cinema I also prefer 3D in IMAX or 16:9. 2D I like the wider formats.
post #26 of 59
Can't wait for this title to come out. Pre-ordered it once it was announced a while back and the best thing is that I'll have my ZT60 professionally calibrated on Feb 21...right before it is released smile.gif

Greetings,

No rating yet jmacool, as this is only the press release. My review will post after I receive and view the disc. Thanks very much for your comments and support...smile.gif

I don't remember a press release creating this kind of buzz, although I haven't been on here too long. So again I'm really looking forward to this one smile.gif
post #30 of 59
This movie was the "killer app" that compelled me to purchase a 3DTV, so I'm obviously very much looking forward to this release smile.gif
