2001: A Space Odyssey: Recut As A Modern Trailer

Baxter
Posted July 30, 2012 - By Joseph Baxter

Stanley Kubrick's seminal 1968 sci-fi epic, 2001: A Space Odyssey was actually a rather mellow-paced film that, besides carrying a metaphysical message, also indulged in the type of space special-effects that were more conducive for a laid-back audience that appreciates the sublime nature of what they are seeing. (In other word, stoners.)

However, if such a film were to hit in today's film industry, it would probably have to amp-up the intensity. This recut trailer by Film School Rejects pretty much hits the flashy-edited, uber-dramatic nail on the head for what it would have looked like today.
