This is definitely the real-tech hard sci-fi movie to watch for this year. STS, Soyuz, and the ISS clearly feature prominently, and will all explode at one point or another. The movie is reported to open with a 17-minute continuous shot, and has a very low overall shot count. This is pretty cool, because Cuaron's previous movie, Children of Men, put him on the map for well-composed long-duration shots.
I guess since they're flying Shuttle hardware that makes it historical fiction. :lol:
But, seriously, I am pumped. When was the last time STS flew onscreen, Space Cowboys? The Core?
