There's no rest for George Clooney. He just got done campaigning for The Ides of March, his fourth directorial effort in which he stars as a presidential hopeful. Now he is promoting The Descendants, which already has drummed up more Oscar buzz than it can handle long before its Nov. 16 opening.
But he somehow found the time to share some insight with USA TODAY on his film coming out next fall: Gravity, a thoughtful sci-fi drama with Sandra Bullock about two astronauts working on a space station. "A satellite blows up," Clooney says, "and space junk causes damage. We go out in space suits, and she and I are tethered together, floating through space."
