'2001: A Space Odyssey' just got a brand new trailer after 40 years

New, 55 comments

2001 is among the finest sci-fi movies ever made. So, as part of the film's special re-release next month in the UK, the British Film Institute and Warner Bros. produced a new trailer to capture the film's most iconic moments. And it might be the best trailer for Kubrick's classic ever made.

The BFI is showing 2001 as part of its "Sci-Fi: Days of Fears and Wonder" season, during which it'll also show A Clockwork Orange and Brazil, among other classics. This modernized trailer makes HAL 9000 the centerpiece, and the music and atmosphere makes the action unquestionably creepy. The film will debut on November 28th, so those who can attend should definitely consider themselves lucky.
