Without wishing to spoil it for anyone who hasn’t seen it (watch it in 3D, preferably IMAX 3D. It’ll be about the only time it’s worth it), there’s a crucial point in Gravity where contact is made by radio with the Earth. In the movie, we only get to see one side of that conversation, but for the Blu-ray release, a short, seven-minute movie called Aningaaq was shot that depicted the other side of the conversation. That movie has since been shown at festivals and the reaction has been so good, that it’s been nominated for an Oscar. If it’s shortlisted, that’ll be the first time in history both a movie and its spin-off will be in the running to win in the same year.
And you can watch it below. What do you think? Oscar-worthy?
