Gravity Would Have Turned Out a Lot Differently If They Used This “Alternate Scene”

In the past, writer-director Alfonso Cuarón has disclosed the “alternate ending” of Gravity: “After landing on Earth, Ryan will get back on her feet and as she’s walking away Matt Kovalski falls from the sky and [crushes] her to death,” he once joked.

But a new “alternate scene” has found its way online. And like that proposed ending, the events that occur here would have radically altered the outcome of the film.
