George Clooney has two films opening just in time for awards season. The Ides of March, a political thriller co-starring Ryan Gosling, and The Descendants, about a man trying ot reconnect with his estranged daughters.
But, when the actor-director sat down with The Hollywood Reporter‘s Todd McCarthy at the Telluride Film Festival, talk turned to another of his upcoming films, Gravity (due in theaters November 12, 2012).
“Well, I don’t want to spoil it for you … everyone dies,” Clooney joked of the picture, directed by Alfonso Cuaron.
The film, set in outer space, tells the tale of a lone survivor of an ill-fated mission to repair the Hubble telescope, and his quest to return to Earth. And, the actor tells THR he has high hopes for its success.
“It’s just a beautiful story, and it’s really well done. And, I hope it ends up being a great film. Visually, I haven’t seen anything like it in my life.”
He also had kind words to say about his co-star, Oscar-winner Sandra Bullock. “It’s Sandy Bullock, who I love, who I’ve been friends with for 25 years, and it’s she and I floating in space.”
