Warner Bros. has issued an October 4, 2013 release date for Gravity, director Alfonso Cuarón's outer-space thriller starring Sandra Bullock and George Clooney. The film will have a lot of competition, going up against Delivery Man, Paranoia, Sin City: A Dame to Kill For, and Star Wars: Episode III - Revenge of the Sith 3D.

Sandra Bullock stars as Dr. Ryan Stone, a medical engineer on her first space mission with veteran astronaut Matt Kowalsky (George Clooney). Disaster strikes when their space shuttle is destroyed, and they are stranded in outer space, tethered to nothing but themselves.

Alfonso Cuarón is directing from a screenplay he co-wrote with Jonás Cuarón. We'll keep you posted as soon as the first trailer finally surfaces.
