Please Give Movie Fans A '2001'/'Gravity' Double Feature In Theaters

It's hard to avoid comparisons to Stanley Kubrick's groundbreaking 2001: A Space Odyssey when reading the reviews for Gravity. Hollywood-Elsewhere's Jeff Wells wrote the following after seeing the sci-fi thriller at the Telluride Film Festival: "If Stanley Kubrick had been there last night he would freely admit that 2001: A Space Odyssey is no longer the ultimate, adult-angled, real-tech depiction of what it looks and feels like to orbit the earth. Nifty and super-cool from a pure-eyeball perspective, Gravity is certainly the most essential theatrical experience since Avatar." All this talk of 2001 spurred me to pop in my Blu-ray copy of the film, but that's not good enough. 2001 is a film that was meant to be viewed on a big screen. If Gravity really deserves to be compared to 2001, then Warner Bros. and exhibitors around the globe should treat movie fans to a double feature. Phil Contrino has started a petition in order build momentum for this idea. If you consider yourself a fan of ground-breaking cinema, please show your support.
