2018: A Space Return

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.

America’s Journey Is Limitless

On the eve of celebrating America’s birthday with backyard BBQ’s, parades and fireworks, it seems fitting to replay the first trailer of the forthcoming major motion picture ‘First Man’ starring Ryan Gosling and Claire Foy with director Damien Chazelle.

There is no limit to the American imagination.

Making Space for New Stuff

What is the National Aeronautics and Space Administration (NASA) up to these days?

Whether 2001: A Space Odyssey, Apollo 13, Gravity, Interstellar, The Martian or the forthcoming First Man, Hollywood has piqued movie-going audiences into the vast realities and fantastical possibilities of space.

Sorry, a side note:

The older I get, the more I’m amused at the sheer simplicity of calling the ever-complex and unknown space “space.”

“What’s up there with the infinite stars, planets, moon, sun and all-around cosmic mystery?”

“Space.”

I digress. And so does NASA.

What highly-technical, mind-blowing innovations and life-altering journeys are being planned by NASA for this year and beyond?

Things…on a To-Do list.

Fly Me to the Moon (Again)

The cinematic jazz duo of ‘La La Land’ actor Ryan Gosling with writer and director Damien Chazelle are back with a story–known and unknown–that changed the way we view our planet relative to the infinite, mysterious space around it.

Neil Armstrong is the focus. 1961-1969 are the years. And the moment was historic.

Now for the first poster.

Now the first trailer just released online.

We’ll just have to wait and see if ‘First Man’ has the right stuff to live up to the legacy of NASA and Neil Armstrong, its fearless leader.
