This Is What The 'Gravity' Movie Posters Should Have Looked Like

What happens when you ask a group of visually adept artists to design alternative movie posters for a blockbuster film like "Gravity"? Magic, that's what.

From minimalist, monochromatic imaginings to throwback designs that harken back to vintage film posters, the collection of "Gravity"-inspired artworks are an appropriately heart-stopping visual feast.
