Finally!  After being pulled from the 2012 schedule altogether last summer and moved to an unspecified 2013 date, Warner Bros. has at last announced a firm release date for director Alfonso Cuaron’s highly anticipated upcoming sci-fi drama Gravity.  The visual effects-heavy 3D film stars Sandra Bullock as an astronaut stranded alone in space following a catastrophic event onboard a spacecraft.  Further details are under wraps, but the film is said to have an unbroken 17-minute opening shot, plenty of mind-bending effects, and a supporting turn from George Clooney.

On the crowded October date, the film will face off against the Vince Vaughn comedy The Delivery Man, the Liam Hemsworth/Gary Oldman thriller Paranoia, the 3D re-release of Star Wars: Episode III – Revenge of the Sith, and the sequel Sin City: A Dame to Kill For.  Here’s hoping we see a trailer soon.  Hit the jump to read a synopsis for the film.

Here’s the synopsis for Gravity:

Sandra Bullock plays Dr. Ryan Stone, a brilliant medical engineer on her first shuttle mission, with veteran astronaut Matt Kowalsky (George Clooney) in command of his last flight before retiring. But on a seemingly routine spacewalk, disaster strikes. 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.
