Playing EXCLUSIVE: ‘Gravity’ Is So Much Scarier without Music in New Silent Edition

When Gravity -- the Oscar-winning space drama starring Sandra Bullock and George Clooney -- first debuted in theaters, it both wowed and unnerved fans with its amazing special effects and spellbinding camera work.

After Dr. Ryan Stone (Bullock) was stranded in space mid-orbit, fans were left spinning as she figured out her way back to Earth. The film’s sense of dread -- largely created by the impending lack of oxygen -- was heightened by the film’s sound effects and composer Steven Price’s score.

Though, Gravity is even scarier without all the extra sound effects. In an effort to give fans a more realistic version of the fictional story, Warner Bros. is re-releasing a two-disc special edition Blu-ray featuring a silent edition of the 2013 film.

In an ETonline exclusive, fans can preview what it’s like to watch Bullock scream in space without additional sound effects and score -- both of which earn Oscars for the film. The unique viewing experience is remarkably more terrifying as Bullock feels even more alone, stranded nearly 250 miles above Earth.
