For the first time since the original release, a new 70mm print of 2001: A Space Odyssey has been struck from new printing elements made from the original camera negative. An amazing new trailer has just been released that reminds us just how incredible Kubrick's film is.

Warner Brothers is being clear that this was a painstaking process and Christopher Nolan has chimed in to quote, "It's a true photochemical film recreation. No digital tricks, remastered effects, or revisionist edits are being used."

Stanley Kubrick’s dazzling films remains a compelling drama of man vs. machine, a stunning meld of music and motion.

Kubrick (who co-wrote the screenplay with Arthur C. Clarke) first visits our prehistoric ape-ancestry past, then leaps millennia (via one of the most mind-blowing jump cuts ever) into colonized space, and ultimately whisks astronaut Bowman (Keir Dullea) into uncharted space, perhaps even into immortality.

“Open the pod bay doors, HAL.” Let an awesome journey unlike any other begin.

Check out the trailer below:
