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.
