Gravity 2D & 3D Blu-rays (Updated)

Posted January 17, 2014 02:18 PM by Webmaster

Warner 90th AnniversaryWarner Bros. Home Entertainment has officially announced the 2D and 3D Blu-ray Combo Pack release of acclaimed filmmaker Alfonso Cuarón's Gravity, which stars Best Actress Oscar nominee Sandra Bullock, George Clooney and Ed Harris. The visually captivating film has been nominated for ten Academy Awards (among them Best Picture and Best Director), and arrives on Blu-ray on February 25th.

Synopsis: Dr. Ryan Stone (Bullock) is a brilliant medical engineer on her first shuttle mission, with veteran astronaut Matt Kowalski (Clooney) in command. But on a seemingly routine mission, disaster strikes. The shuttle is destroyed, leaving Stone and Kowalski completely alone, tethered to nothing but each other and spiraling out into the darkness. The deafening silence tells them they've 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, and the only way home may be to go further out into the terrifying expanse of space.

Gravity has become one of the most honored films of the year, garnering ten Academy Award nominations. The film has also received 11 BAFTA Award nominations and 10 Critics' Choice Award nominations, both including Best Picture, Best Director and Best Actress (Bullock). Cuarón recently received a Golden Globe Award for Best Director. Gravity has also won Best Picture awards from several prestigious critics organizations, including the Los Angeles Film Critics Association, and has been included on 395 critics' and critics groups' top ten lists, as well as being named one of the AFI's ten best films of the year. It was also announced as the year's best reviewed film by Rotten Tomatoes.

The Blu-ray edition of Gravity is presented in 1080p with DTS-HD Master Audio 5.1 surround. Both the 2D and 3D Blu-ray/DVD/UltraViolet combo pack releases feature the following extras:
  • Collision Point: The Race to Clean Up Space (Narrated by Ed Harris)
  • Aningaaq - A short film by Jonás Cuarón with optional introduction
  • Gravity Mission Control
    • It Began With A Story
    • Initial Challenges: Long Shots And Zero G

@mredman: Me again! Gravity is the exception. A well made tightly structured thriller from one of the few directors other than Cameron who knows how to use 3D not for cheap thrills but as an integral part of his story telling. 3D would stand a better chance of becoming mainstream and not be assigned to the kids' ghetto if more movies like this were made in 3D. For reasons of "Hollywood" however that isn't likely to happen.

There's no way this release will only be 5.1. It will probably include both 5.1 and 7.1. But if I remember correctly, even the score was originally mixed in 7.1 (before being expanded for Dolby Atmos)

Glad it's a WB title - preordered (blind bought) the 3D edition when it dropped into my goldbox several months ago. Had this been from Disney, I suspect the order would have been cancelled by now.

@Bluyoda this did fantastically in 3D in the theaters and am very pleased with its performance.

i do think this will be both the 5.1 and 7.1 mix, or the atmos mix in either viewing platform will be another release itself, Dolby Atmos isn't common in the home theater environment which is why DTSHDMA in the 7.1 mix is created, Dolby TruHD 7.1 is created, and the discs get optimized for this. the score was specifically expanded for Dolby Atmos which again as a Dolby mix it doesn't exist in the home theater environment .

as it was stated somewhere on the forum, this was originally to be done in native 3D, but due to the large amounts of CGI in the film the decision was made to post convert the film into the format from pre-production and prime focus created that.

Looking forward to see this one finally. This movie did great at the BO..but I dont recall Bullock or Clooney doing a lot of press for this before it came out in theaters. I seem to remember reading that Clooney wasn't exactly thrilled with it either.

@Dubstar - I'm glad I'm not the only one kind of freaking out about this. I've tried explaining to people why this movie is one that absolutely needs to be presented in it's original 7.1 format. There's so many moments where dialogue is placed around the listener and 5.1 isn't going to place the dialogue in the correct spots nearly as well.

This was the first film where I felt the 3D not only enhanced the experience, but is a necessary aspect of it.

As I only have 2D at home... I am fearful of how my opinion of the film might change, even though it was my favourite of the year. At least I got to see it three times in 3D theatres.

No commentary of MMM? That's disappointing. Loved this in theaters but I dunno how this will hold up at home (and I have 3D). If there aren't any retailer exclusives I'll just wait for the 3D price to come down at or below $20 before picking this up.

Wondering why the sound is only 5.1. It was released in theatres in 7.1 and is one of the best sounding films ever made. Also disappointed about the lack of bonus material. I smell a big box edition coming before Christmas.

@Geeezer00003 this was done in the following sound codings: Datastat, Dolby Digital, Dolby Atmos, and SDDS.

what we will hear at home is the Datastat or Dolby Digital mixes depending on the player, or the SDDS if a sony unit is owned. we will not hear Atmos because this is less common a codec for home use, but only a select 1,000 theaters can hear this particular Dolby.

Atmos can only be heard theatrically if the theater is equipped with the playback processor, where i am my closest AMC is not equipped with the processor so only the lower sound codings can be heard. my locations closest Amstar i do not know if it is equipped with the processor for Atmos. Brave introduced Atmos in the first place and is starting to expand gradually to many movies who have adapted the system CG and live action alike.

no, not necessarily we are being skimped on. no we are not screwing the people at home (director prefers BD 3D which for many with 2D setups means forcing the owners to sell for TVs of Stereoscopic capability).

those tricks can't be viewed in 2D which means we have to use a lower sound coding to one or both Blu-Rays as far as the audio (alter shots in the conversion where the tricks are employed for the video ) , or we are forced to sell our current TV's for 3D ones to view the film. no that isn't true either, the directors vision is recognized best in 3D which means any 2D owners need to make the switch now, buy the pack to future proof (it is always encouraged), or stick with the version we all have no choice to use.

Alfonso Quaron its director tells us all why NOT to buy the 2D version of the film, it is only 20% of the experience of 3D outer space. the other 98/99% comes from owning a 3D TV to view his masterpiece. this is one of those where post conversion works, and Prime Focus's 2D-ViewD process works for it.

im sure the Atmos/Dolby Surround 7.1 comes later in the year. but again Atmos has not entered the home theater environment because most current 2D or 3D TV's dont have the processor to use Dolby Atmos in the home. in the FAQ on this website in Blu-Ray Vs DVD, if anyone can answer this for me, my player (Samsung BD 3D FM 59) has LPCM, Dolby Digital, and DTS as the defaults because im hooked up to a traditional 2D TV. are the last couple codecs in the FAQ section only passable on a 3D TV?

@blucollect ... some of your information is incorrect.

The basic info you need is: the film was released theatrically in Dolby Surround 7.1 and Dolby Atmos. Dolby Atmos doesn't exist in the home. The closest thing you can get is expanding with front high and wide speakers but that's not the same and none of it is discrete. However, 7.1 does exist for the home and many Blu-ray's feature it. Up until this title, all of Warner Bros. theatrical Dolby Surround 7.1 tracks were also featured (in 7.1) on the Blu-ray.

oh wow, this was dolby surround 7.1 in theaters and Dolby Atmos. Dolby Atmos is too powerful a sound for home use.

so what can be done is doing a front high and wide extension made to stimulate the fact the TV is using this codec in the home.

7.1 i figured does work in the home and many blu-ray 2D and 3D titles alike feature this. i hope Warner Bros rectifies this in its later releases by adding a Dolby Surround 7.1 track on future releases.

if a title is Dolby Atmos, is all mentioning removed from the end credits of a BD release that the particular title was released theatrically in Atmos?
