WB Sets Gravity for 2013, Gangster Squad for September 7


Warner Bros. Pictures has delayed the theatrical release of Alfonso Cuarón’s Gravity. Originally planned for release on November 21, 2012, the science fiction film will instead see release on an unspecified date in 2013. The studio has, meanwhile, set Ruben Fleischer’s Gangster Squad for September 7th of this year.

Gravity focuses on the character of Dr. Ryan Stone (Sandra Bullock), a brilliant medical engineer on her first shuttle mission. By her side is veteran astronaut Matt Kowalsky (George Clooney), in command of his last flight before retiring. On a seemingly routine spacewalk, disaster sAlfonso Cuarontrikes. The shuttle is destroyed, leaving Stone and Kowalsky completely alone –tethered to nothing but each other and spiraling out into the blackness. The deafening silence tells them they have lost any link to Earth… and any chance for rescue. As fear turns to panic, every gulp of air eats away at what little oxygen is left. But the only way home may be to go further out into the terrifying expanse of space.

Planned for a 3D release, Gravity is written by Cuarón and his son, Jonás Cuarón.

Gangster Squad, which debuted its trailer last week, is described as follows:

Los Angeles, 1949. Ruthless, Brooklyn-born mob king Mickey Cohen (Sean Penn) runs the show in this town, reaping the ill-gotten gains from the drugs, the guns, the prostitutes and–if he has his way–every wire bet placed west of Chicago. And he does it all with the protection of not only his own paid goons, but also the police and the politicians who are under his control. It’s enough to intimidate even the bravest, street-hardened cop…except, perhaps, for the small, secret crew of LAPD outsiders led by Sgt. John O’Mara (Josh Brolin) and Jerry Wooters (Ryan Gosling), who come together to try to tear Cohen’s world apart. “Gangster Squad” is a colorful retelling of events surrounding the LAPD’s efforts to take back their nascent city from one of the most dangerous mafia bosses of all time.
