Remember Alfonso Cuarón's 'Gravity'? It Now Has A PG-13 Rating

Shot way back in 2011 and originally slated to be released next month by Warner Bros. before being pushed to a still unknown 2013 date, word has been deafeningly quiet around Alfonso Cuarón's "Gravity." With nothing in the way of stills or posters, the movie is still somewhat of a mystery, though it does seem like we're inching slowly toward some fresh news about the movie.

Shot way back in 2011 and originally slated to be released next month by Warner Bros. before being pushed to a still unknown 2013 date, word has been deafeningly quiet around Alfonso Cuarón's "Gravity." With nothing in the way of stills or posters, the movie is still somewhat of a mystery, though it does seem like we're inching slowly toward some fresh news about the movie.

The MPAA have dropped their latest batch of ratings (via Rope Of Silicon) and it includes a PG-13 rating for the film "For intense perilous sequences, some disturbing images and brief strong language." Of course, who knows what that means for the actual release of the movie, but it goes suggest a cut is finished. But where and when will we see it?

The picture is a tricky one for Warner Bros., an ambitious effects-heavy sci-fi movie that -- though it features George Clooney and Sandra Bullock -- is mostly a one-woman show in a genre that is typically a very hard sell to audiences (there is a reason that despite the star-studded cast, Warner Bros. is opening "Cloud Atlas" this weekend on less than 2,000 screens). While some may think it's summer tentpole material, we're guessing it's bit trickier tonally than that, which may be why WB are still trying to figure out where to place it.

You might recall that pants were fully jizzed at a test screening earlier this spring of the unfinished movie, but overall, "Gravity" is still something a niche film. Will WB decide to take on the festival route, maybe hope to win over nerds and build buzz at SXSW? Or perhaps Cannes can give it some kind of momentum in an out-of-competition screening. We shall see, but this tiny update will have to do for now.
