‘2001: A SPACE ODYSSEY’ – Kubrick’s Masterpiece In 70mm [Trailer]

Stanley Kubrick had a vision long before many others. The future as he saw it in his mind was transferred to film nearly 50 years ago in the film 2001: A Space Odyssey. Now Warner Bros. has brought back to life a 70mm print of the original for Special Engagement screenings in 70mm. Warner Bros. has released the trailer for the 70mm print and you can see just how amazing this film was. The genius of Kubrick.

“For the first time since the original release, this 70mm print was struck from new printing elements made from the original camera negative. This is a true photochemical film recreation. There are no digital tricks, remastered effects, or revisionist edits. This is the unrestored film – that recreates the cinematic event that audiences experienced fifty years ago.” – Christopher Nolan

Stanley Kubrick’s dazzling, Academy Award®-winning* achievement is a compelling drama of man vs. machine, a stunning meld of music and motion. Kubrick (who co-wrote the screenplay with Arthur C. Clarke) first visits our prehistoric ape-ancestry past, then leaps millennia (via one of the most mind-blowing jump cuts ever) into colonized space, and ultimately whisks astronaut Bowman (Keir Dullea) into uncharted space, perhaps even into immortality. “Open the pod bay doors, HAL.” Let an awesome journey unlike any other begin.

This one is on my bucket list for 2018. Such an amazing film that was ahead of it’s time in many ways.
