Watch a new trailer for '2001: A Space Odyssey'

Posted on

2001 A Space Odyssey

The British Film Institute is set to re-release Stanley Kubrick’s seminal film 2001: A Space Odyssey into theaters this November, so it’s only natural that we’d get a brand-new trailer 46 years after it was released.

BFI and Warner Bros. commissioned a new trailer celebrating the film’s legacyand promoting its appearance in theaters in the U.K.with a trailer for Kubrick’s science fiction epic. The trailer includes some of the film’s most iconic imagery, as well as the dulcet tones of Hal the computer and the familiar sounds of “Also sprach Zarathustra.”

2001 will make its reappearance in movie theaters across the U.K. beginning on Nov. 28 as part of BFI’s “Sci-Fi: Days of Fears and Wonder” series. The re-release should be a hit with cinephiles and and an opportunity for younger audiences wondering what exactly inspired Christopher Nolan’s Interstellar.

For comparison, here’s an original trailer for the film.
