For my money, Alfonso Cuarón is one of the most talented film makers working today. His “Henry Potter & The Prisoner of Azkaban” is one of the strongest entries in the franchise, while “Children Of Men” is one of the few movies that is actually better than the book it is based upon (besides having lots more action).
And speaking of Cuarón, what happened to “Gravity?” I last heard about it a year or so ago, then nothing.
Though what the director appears to be up to lately is a new series with J.J. Abrams (Star Trek), about a girl with special powers, and the man who is tasked to protect her against certain forces intent upon her destruction. While I have never been a J.J. Abrams fan–one reason being I don’t quite get his fascination with lens flares–Cuarón in another matter entirely.
And here’s the teaser for “Gravity,” which manages to impart a feeling of impending disaster, while revealing virtually nothing about the film itself, in a very efficient fashion.
