There was been a lot of talk lately —particularly in light of Christopher Nolan‘s “Interstellar” on the horizon— about movies that must be seen on the big screen. But there are few that can lay that claim with as much confidence as Stanley Kubrick‘s “2001: A Space Odyssey.” And now for lucky folks in the UK, his sci-fi masterpiece is returning to cinemas and a terrific new trailer has arrived.
The director’s brain-bender was a must-see event back in 1968, and that’s no less true now. The film, shot on 65mm, is a visual wonder that still needs the all enveloping theatrical experience to truly appreciate its scope and scale, taking viewers from the dawn of man, to the edge of the universe and beyond. It’s ambitious, beautiful and bold even more than four decades later.
