Someone added a surprise character to ‘Gravity’ and made it way better
The plot changed faster than a speeding bullet.
Gravity’s opening sequence is a suspenseful and terrifying intro to a nerve-racking 93 minutes. But that’s just because Warner Bros. scrapped an earlier scene that would have made the whole thing a tad shorter, and a lot less nerve-racking—at least if you’re to believe Youtuber Krishna Shenoi’s April Fools’ prank.
“Hard to believe, but Oscar-winning director Alfonso Cuaron (‘Children of Men’) originally shot an opening scene for Gravity that would have radically changed the film,” he wrote. “Too bad the brass at Warner Bros. rejected this version.”
Not only does it change the scene itself, it changes the whole movie faster than a speeding bullet.
