Hal 2001

If someone has writen or spoken about Christopher Nolan’s Interstellar, there’s a good chance a mention of Stanley Kubrick’s seminal 2001: A Space Odyssey is not far off. CutPrintFilm took the allusion one step further and mashed up the two films to show, unsurprisingly, that they have quite a bit in common.

While some of the moments used are obviously stretching the meaning of certain scenes in 2001, the story to Interstellar certainly sounds like it has taken its fair share of influence from Kubrick’s work, which has come to be the standard bearer for all space films.
