Bryan Abrams of The Credits explains why the basic tenet of 3D serving the story has led to Gravity's success at the box office.
He writes, "Cuarón’s masterpiece took place in space, and to put viewers in Sandra Bullock’s weightless shoes, Cuarón and his team (including of hundreds of individuals and numerous Digital FX, camera, conversion and facial mapping companies) envisioned the film from the very start as a 3D picture. In fact, an early script he had sent to producer David Heyman was entitled Gravity: A Space Adventure in 3D. The film was conceived from the very start as a 3D movie, and Cuarón and his incredible team baked that third dimension into the very DNA of their story."
