Stanley Kubrick redefined the limits of filmmaking in his classic science fiction masterpiece, a contemplation on the nature of humanity, "2001: A Space Odyssey." Stone Age Earth: In the presence of a mysterious black obelisk, pre-humans discover the use of tools--and weapons--violently taking first steps toward intelligence. 1999: On Earth's moon astronauts uncover another mysterious black obelisk. 2001: Between Earth and Jupiter, the spacecraft's intelligent computer makes a mistake that kills most of the human crew--then continues to kill to hide its error. Beyond Time: The sole survivor of the journey to Jupiter ascends to the next level of humanity. Based on the short story The Sentinel by Arthur C. Clarke.
Award-winning filmmaker Christopher Nolan, a longtime admirer of Stanley Kubrick’s masterpiece, worked closely with the team at Warner Bros. Pictures throughout the restoration process, which premiered at the Cannes Film Festival in 2018.
