While we're still baffled as to why Warner Bros. didn't use this as a post-credits treat for the theatrical run of "Gravity" (though they could try and snag audiences a second time by adding it to the movie in an awards season, second run push) this will more than do. "Gravity" co-writer Jonas Cuaron's seven-minute spin-off short film "Aningaaq"has now arrived online in full for you to see.

While we're still baffled as to why Warner Bros. didn't use this as a post-credits treat for the theatrical run of "Gravity" (though they could try and snag audiences a second time by adding it to the movie in an awards season, second run push) this will more than do. "Gravity" co-writer Jonas Cuaron's seven-minute spin-off short film "Aningaaq"has now arrived online in full for you to see.

Premiering rather quietly this summer at the Venice Film Festival (where, oddly enough (again), it didn't even feature alongside "Gravity"), the short film centers on the Inuit ice-fisherman in Greenland (played by Orto Ignatiussen) that Sandra Bullock's imperilled astronaut Ryan Stone makes radio contact with briefly while floating in outer space, trying to make her way back home. Cuaron tells THR this short was assembled "guerilla style," shot for $100,000 on location in Greenland (most which covered transportation for the crew), and was finished concurrently with the full length "Gravity."  

And while we await your verdict in the comments section, Bullock was rather moved by the finished product. “It's so beautiful, and I get goosebumps thinking about it,” the actress said at the Los Angeles press conference for "Gravity" last month. But enough chatter, check it out for yourself below.
