It's all about perception, we suppose. While the forthcoming "Gravity" boasts no shortage of dazzling visual effects, heart pumping thrills and yes, 3D, it's still relatively lean in both size and scope. Running 90 minutes and featuring two main characters, it's far from the bloat of most blockbuster movies, a fact that isn't lost on director Alfonso Cuarón.

At this point, you can probably assemble all of the photos released from Alfonso Cuaron's space-set mindbender "Gravity," put them into a little book like John Travolta in "Blow Out," and flip through them, playing the entire movie.

Press Conference TIFF 2013
If you are stuck having to watch all the Toronto International Film Festival action from the sidelines, fret not—another aspect of the festival will now come straight to your computer screen. The overlong, occasionally awkward press conferences that accompany each of the big films at TIFF have been uploaded to YouTube, so you can squirm in your seat while pretending to not play Candy Crush like the rest of the journalists in the room. This is literally hours of material, from big marquee titles like "Gravity," "12 Years a Slave," "Prisoners," "Labor Day," "Enough Said" and more. It's like you're there! Only not.

It's probably safe to say that Alfonso Cuaron's "Gravity" is nothing short of a sensation. Premiering at Venice to rave reviews, sneaking into Telluride for more acclaim and now headed to TIFF, there hasn't been a lack of superlatives for the movie. Our own man on the Lido called it "a technical marvel, and it’s a blockbuster with heart and soul in spades" and the good news is, unlike a lot of movies hitting the fest circuit, you won't be waiting long for this one to play near you.

Gravity, Sandra Bullock
Our anticipation for Alfonso Cuaron's long awaited (seven years since "Children of Men!") return to the big screen with the deep-space-set "Gravity" grows like an exploding star as we countdown to the movie's October debut (you can read our Venice Film Festival review here). In fact, the only way we could be more excited about the movie is if someone like, say, James Cameron, a space travel freak and the unofficial grand wizard of 3D, were to dub the film "the best space film ever," which is something that he just did. Game changer! Also, watch costars Sandra Bullock and George Clooney talk about the film from Venice.

Since JFK vowed to put a man on the moon in 1961, space has represented untold possibility. Hope. Optimism. But once we actually got there, we realized what a terrifying place it can be. An endless void, freezing and/or burning, a place without air or life. But most terrifyingly of all, if you die in space, you die alone: thousands of miles above and away from your loved ones. And more than anything, aren’t we most afraid of dying alone? Alfonso Cuaron seems to think so, as that’s the fear that drives his new film, the extraordinary “Gravity.”

To say that "Gravity" is highly anticipated is an understatement, and it's easily the ticket to have for anyone hitting Venice this week, or TIFF next week. And as the marketing for the 3D space thriller ramps up with some TV spots hitting, director Alfonso Cuaron is helping his son Jonas Cuaron — co-writer on "Gravity" — get his next feature off the ground.

If the entirety of Alfonso Cuarón’s new 3D space movie “Gravity” is going to be like the series of clips the studio has been releasing over the last couple of days, then we’re fairly certain our heart is going to explode out of our chest, Jeff Fahey-on-“Under the Dome” style. The newest clip, entitled “I’ve Got You” and running at almost two minutes, isn’t all that much different than the others that the studio has released—Sandra Bullock is floating in space, George Clooney is trying to talk her through it, and, on yeah, your jaw will most likely be agape in sheer wonderment and terror.

Here's hoping that Warner Bros. is selling the sizzle and not the steak. We're still a couple of months from "Gravity" hitting theaters, but with bows at Venice and TIFF on the horizon, the marketing machine is starting to churn for the film. In case you missed, late last night a single take scene formed the basis of a new trailer for the movie, and another long take teaser has arrived.
