Alfonso Cuarón Answers Reporter's Burning Gravity Question
“Was it Difficult to Film in Space?”
Gravity opened in theaters last week to reviews and ticket sales that were out of this world.
During a press conference for the film’s release in Mexico City, director Alfonso Cuarón fielded an unexpected question from TV Azteca reporter Carlos “El Capi” Perez, Uproxx reports.
“Was it very difficult, very complicated to film in space?” the reporter asked during the conference. “Did the camera operators get sick?”
After hesitating for a few moments, Cuarón responded, “Well, yes, we took some cameras there aboard the Soyuz. We were in space for three-and-a-half months. I got really sick during training,”
Perez, who reports as a correspondent for a Mexican comedy show Deberian Estar Trabajando (You Should Be Working), has received a bit of flack from those who thought his question was serious.
The comedian responded to those naysayers with the Tweet: “Excuse me Twitter for being a professional committed to information.”
