Early Buzz: Reactions from the First Test Screening for Alfonso Cuaron's 'Gravity', Slashfilm

"The expectations are sky-high for Alfonso Cuaron's Gravity, the director's first film since 2006s Children of Men. In fact, between the A-list cast (Sandra Bullock and George Clooney), its intriguing sci-fi premise, its ambitious long shots, and gushing praise from colleagues like Guillermo del Toro, we have plenty of reason to believe the film could be his most brilliant yet. On the other hand, this wouldn't be the first time we've been dead wrong about a movie this early on."

Keith's note: (sigh) another film that NASA decided not to cooperate with.

Keith's update: NASA PAO paints a contradictory story to what other sources (quite reliable ones) have provided. PAO says that NASA actually reached out to the producers of "Gravity" on their own inititiative early on but that the studio desired no assistance or input from NASA.
