James Cameron has become the latest to hail forthcoming space thriller 'Gravity'.

The 'Avatar' helmsman saw director Alfonso Cuaron's film, which has early Oscar buzz currently circling it, and doesn't hold back with his opinions.

Speaking to Variety, he said: “I was stunned, absolutely floored. I think it’s the best space photography ever done, I think it’s the best space film ever done, and it’s the movie I’ve been hungry to see for an awful long time.

“What is interesting is the human dimension. Alfonso and Sandra [Bullock] working together to create an absolutely seamless portrayal of a woman fighting for her life in zero gravity.”

“She’s the one that had to take on this unbelievable challenge to perform it. (It was) probably no less demanding than a Cirque du Soleil performer, from what I can see.

“There’s an art to that, to creating moments that seem spontaneous but are very highly rehearsed and choreographed. Not too many people can do it. I think it’s really important for people in Hollywood to understand what was accomplished here.”

If you can manage to wait that long, it's out on November 8.
