Some movies are made for IMAX.
‘2001: A Space Odyssey’ is one of these films.
And this cinematic epic–and this landmark film in equal measure–will be re-released in IMAX in movie theaters across the country. Digitally remastered for the size, scope, scale, feel and the sound of everything that is awesome with IMAX, ‘2001’ will give audiences the chance to see this movie again. Or possibly for the first time in stunning fashion.
Here’s a preview.
Check your local listings to see if the IMAX version of ‘2001: A Space Odyssey’ will be playing in a movie theater near you.
This isn’t just a movie. It’s an experience.
Kelsey Grammer is the quintessential sitcom actor. But the crazy thing is that Kelsey Grammer was not that far off from not being a beloved TV star, as revealed in a recent chat with Conan O’Brien.
Speaking as a Kelsey Grammer fan, I’m not quite sure if the role of the smuggling badass named Han Solo would have been right for the actor best known as Frasier Crane. On the other hand, Mr. Grammer is a brilliant actor with a wide-range of talent (ie – Boss on Starz several years back).
I’ll need a few more (par)secs to decide.
You’re about to enjoy a Throwback Thursday with a revamped trailer of 1968s signature science-fiction epic 2001: A Space Odyssey that will be re-released later this year in 2018.
“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.”
When can we buy tickets (for a space odyssey)?
We all hear voices from time to time (so I’m told…). However, there’s a real talent for impersonating voices. Enter Last Jedi actor and Star Wars legend Mark Hamill in a recent sit-down interview with famed movie critic Peter Travers.
For the record, the merchandise from Star Wars, Jurassic Park and countless movies and television shows are what enabled escapism normally confined to a movie theater and family TV rooms (pre-YouTube and Internet) to reach new levels of imaginative curiosity. It’s an impactful part of being a kid, going to the movies and dreaming big. So, Sir Alec Guinness, wise Obi-Wan Kenobi, you were gravely mistaken.
If only Mr. Guinness (bet that got him a few free beers over the years) could have heard the voices of millions of kids seeing his films and playing with a myriad of merchandise, all while beginning a lifetime passion for some of the most treasured films in cinematic history.
Obi-Lost that Debate Kenobi more like it, hmmm (just one of those voices…).
