Another Reason Why I Want To See Gravity NOW

The brilliant initial trailer for it had me hooked. And now?

Alfonso Cuaron Defends Having Female Lead in Gravity – Melissa Silverstein and Kerensa Cadenas in Women and Hollywood:

Science fiction, like the superhero genre is all about the guys to Hollywood though we know that is completely not the case. It’s a genre that is ripe with potential for great female roles which Cuaron recognized. On occasion we get kick-ass, complex women like Alien’s Ellen Ripley, Battlestar Galactica’s Kara ‘Starbuck’ Thrice and The X-Files’ Dana Scully that goes down in the record books as a great character regardless of gender. But we need more.

On the panel, Bullock spoke about that she felt Cuaron was “brave” for making her character a woman and that she hoped that this would become the norm.
