There are good sci-fi movies and there are great ones. And then there is Stanley Kubrick's 2001: A Space Odyssey
, unequivocally the greatest work of science fiction ever committed to celluloid.
As part of the BFI's three-month Things To Come: Science Fiction film project, Kubrick's 1968 masterpiece will be given a theatrical re-release across the United Kingdom starting 28 November, thanks to Warner Brothers' brand spanking new digital transfer.
To promote this incredible film's latest journey "beyond the infinite", the BFI has commissioned a fantastic new trailer, which not only captures many of the best dramatic, visual and aural moments from the film, but also includes a number of quotes from esteemed filmmakers in the sci-fi genre, like Chris Nolan and Alfonso Cuaron, on just how important and influential 2001 is to them.
If this tactic gets just one new viewer to experience this film on the big screen, then in my mind at least, the entire endeavour has proved worthwhile. You can check out the trailer below and visit the BFI website
