'2001' Gets A 21st Century Revival

2001 space odyssey

Ignition Creative London delivered a dazzling, 21st-century trailer to celebrate Stanley Kubrick’s “2001: A Space Odyssey”, for its first theatrical re-release in nearly fifty years. As part of the British Film Institute’s Sci-Fi: Days of Fears and Wonder program, a digitally remastered edition of this masterpiece returns to venues across the U.K.

The trailer below perfectly blends the film’s most iconic moments with chilling narration by HAL9000 that has haunted us for generations. It will forever instill a level of fear of AI and machines that we as humans are very likely to remember forever, for as long as such a movie exists.

On November 28th, the “2001: A Space Odyssey” screening will be followed with a panel with stars Keir Dullea and Gary Lockwood. Other screenings will take place at venues across the U.K. until the end of 2014. BFI will also be featuring other famous Kubrick works during this sci-fi season, such as ‘1984,’ ‘Clockwork Orange,’ ‘Brazil’ and ‘Barbarella.’

Die-hard Kubrick fans in Los Angeles will also be able to view this newly remastered ‘2001’, digitally transferred by Warner Bros., at the Arclight Hollywood Dome on November 2nd.
