What Else We Could Have Seen in Gravity

Studio Wishes and What They Became (Spoilers)

Since early October, the space film Gravity by director Alfonso Curarón has a very successful run in cinemas worldwide. Especially in the US, the thriller managed to break the $100 million barrier in no time. That should make both Warner Bros. and the director happy. The latter had previously deflected several suggestions by the studio regarding the film's content and now doesn't have to struggle with "what if" arguments.

Caution, spoilers ahead:

But at first, the studio suggested that team in Houston should get more face time. "...there are a lot of ideas. People start suggesting other stuff. 'You need to cut to Houston, and see how the rescue mission goes [...] And that's not all. Part of the emotional journey of "Gravity" rests on Stone's backstory, which includes a daughter she lost, but this is all effectively communicated without breaking the single location concept. However, Cuarón was advised to perhaps include some flashbacks in the film and even more. "A whole thing with...a romantic relationship with the Mission Control Commander, who is in love with her. All of that kind of stuff. What else? To finish with a whole rescue helicopter, that would come and rescue her. Stuff like that," he explained of the some of the ideas that were floated his way.

The box office numbers, the Oscar buzz and the superb reviews clearly show that it seemed to be the right decision to go without all this material.
