2001: A Space Odyssey

  1. The Hubris! Ridley Scott Producing 2001: A Space Odyssey Sequel

    It's going to go 100% failure in 72 hours.

    Last month Syfy's new programming chief promised that the network would be returning to its roots by attempting to recapture the network's pre-name-change "serious tone," and, well, attempting a sequel to one of the most iconic films ever is one way to do that, I guess. Memories of shark-based weather phenomena fading...fading...

    "I walked on your face!" -Buzz Aldrin to the Moon.

    Buzz Aldrin, who you may know from being the second person to walk on the Moon, did an AMA on Reddit yesterday, and that's how we got this great dramatic reading of one of his answers from Redditor el_lou-derino. Read more from the AMA and learn about the #Apollo45 campaign after the jump.

  3. 2001: A Space Odyssey With Jon Benjamin as HAL 9000 Proves All Things Are Better With Jon Benjamin

    I'm afraid I can't stop laughing, Dave.

    Everything Jon Benjamin does instantly becomes the absolute greatest. Now, he's done us all a favor and improved 2001: A Space Odyssey by replacing HAL's voice. It might be more comedic this way, but HAL 9000 is also even creepier as a giggling lunatic.

  4. Xbox One Gets the HAL 9000 Treatment, May Take Over Your Whole House [Video]

    We're not trying to fear monger, here, but if you buy an Xbox One, maybe don't give it control over the pod bay doors.

    Seemingly in touch with our dilemma over what to call the new Xbox, the filmmakers over at Gritty Reboots have offered assistance in this conundrum. Considering the new console aspires to run your entire living room and likely won't stop there, their latest short suggests we can just call the new system HAL. Just keep in mind that while the new system won't be "always on," unplugging it will be the saddest act in the history of ever.

  6. Glow-in-the-Dark Game of Thrones and 2001: A Space Odyssey Posters Will Make You See the Light

    In Which We Make A Terrible Pun

    Both posters are part of Bottleneck Gallery's upcoming exhibit "When the Lights Go Out." Gotta say, "glow-in-the-dark art" and "impressive" never really went together in my head... but clearly that was my bad. Mark Englert's Game of Thrones poster "The Battle at Blackwater" has shown me the (neon green) light. And Chris Thornley's 2001: A Space Odyssey poster, behind the cut, just convinced me further.

  8. Now You Can Give Locking Yourself Out of the House Geeky Flair with This Life-Size HAL 9000 Replica [Video]

    There's two ways you can get your hands on a movie-accurate replica of the nefarious artificial intelligence HAL 9000 from 2001: A Space Odyssey. The first -- provided you have no qualms with the destruction of property and your own reputation -- is smashing open the display case of cinematic tchotchkes at Planet Hollywood. The second, and comparatively least felonious, option is shelling out an honest buck for a HAL 9000 of your own. Currently on sale at ThinkGeek, every adult geek's one stop shop for frivolous spending, this reproduction of everyone's favorite wall-mounted A.I. unit comes programmed with 15 chillingly calm phrases and other goodies sure to make innocuous trips across the living room into a paranoid experience!

  9. Siri Plants Pro-Robot Propaganda in Movie Summaries

    Oh Hollywood

    Siri can say some pretty outrageous things (and sometimes it's what she doesn't say that's outrageous), but the most recent discovery of the jokes that programmers have nested deep within her data sources comes from asking her to summarize movies for you. Turns out, she sees a lot of films a bit differently than we do.

  10. A 2001: A Space Odyssey Trailer For Our Times

    For A More Civilized Age

    What would the trailer for Stanley Kubrick's influential science fiction film 2001: A Space Odyssey look like if it were released today? Well, probably a lot like the one above, recut by the folks at Film School Rejects. Let's be honest, it's probably unlikely that a super intelligent, groundbreaking film like 2001 wouldn't attract today's moviegoers without some dramatic trailer sequences. All this trailer needs to be truly modern is a few Michael Bay-ish explosions, a few scenes that aren't actually included in the final cut of the film, and the key plot-spoiling element of the movie. (via i09.)
