The Plot: Sandra Bullock and George Clooney play a pair of astronauts -- a brilliant medical engineer on her first shuttle mission and a veteran astronaut in command of his last flight before retiring -- struggling to survive after a disaster in space separates them from their ship. Tethered to nothing but each other and spiraling out into the blackness, fear turns to panic as they must figure out how they can make it home alive before their oxygen runs out.
Why It's a Must-See: In space, no one can hear you scream... Audiences will watch this film with mouths agape, genuinely wondering "how'd they do that?" as Clooney and Bullock make you believe their fear while quietly screaming "Oscar!" A long-in-development project that has seen a variety of A-list talent attached at various points, including Robert Downey Jr., Angelina Jolie, Natalie Portman, Marion Cotillard, Scarlett Johansson and Blake Lively, the long-awaited film also marks the highly anticpated return of director Alfonso Cuaron (Harry Potter and the Prisoner of Azkaban, Children of Men).
