“50 Years Ago One Movie Changed ALL Movies Forever”
Bluntly, Stanley Kubrick’s “2001: A Space Odyssey” is the greatest science-fiction film made to date with memorabilia avidly sought and collected, particularly ‘country of origin’ examples…Offered here is an outstanding British UK quad film poster for the 2018 50th Anniversary release. Remastered in Digital 4K and released in a 70mm format this is the finest printing so far of this landmark film. As you would expect colours are deep and unfaded and literally ‘pop’ from the paper with imagery of Dr. Dave Bowman (Keir Dullea) in iconic orange spacesuit. An incredibly rare film poster with a strictly limited number printed and issued in very low numbers to cinemas showing the film. Exact figures are not available but the rumoured print run is said to be less than 200. Totally original and unrestored in exceptional, as new rolled (as issued) condition…With its exceptional scarcity and the Film’s historical cinematic influence it represents a true investment grade piece of original highly collectible cinema movie memorabilia. A science fiction fantasy, it is one of the most original films ever made, by one of the greatest ever film-makers.
Trivia: In the premiere screening of the film, 241 people walked out of the theater, including Rock Hudson, who said, “Will someone tell me what the hell this is about?” Arthur C. Clarke once said, “If you understand ‘2001’ completely, we failed. We wanted to raise far more questions than we answered.”…more detail
