Producers Wanted Alfonso Cuarón to Change the ‘Gravity’ Ending

Spoilers for Gravity follow. Alfonso Cuarón won a Best Director Oscar for Gravity, so it’s safe to assume he knew what he was doing when he made the science fiction thriller starring Sandra Bullock.

Nick Fury charges through a barrage of guns, carrying a woman whose limbs flail about in ragdoll-like fashion. Too many visual elements fill the composition, looking like an attempt to fill every available space. Inside, Jack Kirby [Author: Ted F]
