- "You have this weird slow motion, you can't control things; as things are ripping by you. So with that 3D aspect of it, it's as though you're in the same peril they are."
- ―Sandra Bullock on the 3D in Gravity
3D is a film technique that enhance depth perception to make it seem like things are jumping out at you.
It was utilized in Gravity.
3D films have existed in some form since 1915, but had been largely relegated to a niche in the motion picture industry because of the costly hardware and processes required to produce and display a 3D film, and the lack of a standardized format for all segments of the entertainment business. Nonetheless, 3D films were prominently featured in the 1950s in American cinema, and later experienced a worldwide resurgence in the 1980s and 1990s driven by IMAX high-end theaters and Disney themed-venues. 3D films became more and more successful throughout the 2000s, culminating in the unprecedented success of 3D presentations of Avatar in December 2009 and January 2010.
Gravity has been praised for its 3D, which it uses to make outer space seem more infinite and near, rather than just exploiting it.
