Up first, is 'Gravity' from 2013. On a seemingly routine spacewalk, disaster strikes for astronauts Sandra Bullock and George Clooney. When their shuttle destroyed, leaving them completely alone the two are tethered to nothing but each other, and spiralling out into the blackness of space. The deafening silence tells them they have lost any link to Earth...and any chance for rescue.
The film won 7 academy awards, and was nominated for far more.
