Spoiler Special: Gravity

George Clooney and Sanra Bullock float through space in Gravity

Warner Bros.

On the Spoiler Special podcast, Slate critics discuss movies—and the occasional TV show—in full, spoiler-filled detail. Below, Slate film critic Dana Stevens talks with John Swansburg and Forrest Wickman about Gravity. Is the 3-D outer-space movie starring George Clooney and Sandra Bullock as exciting as all the other critics say it is? What happens to Bullock’s character after she unbuckles that space belt, as we see her do in the trailer? And does the movie have anything to do with the government shutdown?

Listen to them discuss these and other questions below. You can also check out past Spoiler Specials in our archive, and you can subscribe to the podcast on iTunes.


Dana Stevens is Slate’s movie critic.

John Swansburg is a senior editor at the Atlantic.

Forrest Wickman is Slate’s culture editor.
