Almost like discovering a monolith buried underground, Warner Brothers recently found 17 minutes of lost footage from Stanley Kubrick‘s masterpiece 2001: A Space Odyssey in a salt-mine vault in Kansas. But before you go and drop acid in anticipation of an extended cut of the film, consider the slippery slope this footage constitutes. One, just because the footage was found doesn’t necessarily mean it’s going to make it into the public eye. Two, Kubrick himself reportedly cut the footage from the film because he felt it created pacing issues. And three, the film is just about perfect as is, do you really want to screw it up?
Hit the jump for more details on the footage as well as what it might contain. Read More »
Douglas Trumbull, the special effects supervisor for Stanley Kubrick on 2001: A Space Odyssey, is making a film about the making of 2001. Called Beyond the Infinite: The Making of a Masterpiece, Trumbull’s film draws on his own experience, a decade of interviews conducted by David Larson, and a wealth of original production materials and stills. There’s a trailer for the film now, which does more to advertise how the final film will be created than to promote the final product. Still, it’s impressive stuff, and if Trumbull pulls it off, Beyond the Infinite could be a valuable documentary for more than 2001 / Kubrick geeks. Watch the trailer after the break. Read More »
Burbank-born artist Carlos Ramos (storyboard artist and writer on Dexter’s Labratory, ChalkZone, My Life as a Teenage Robot, The X’s, and Ni Hao Kai-lan) is presenting a solo exhibition of his Stanley Kubrick-inspired artwork at the Copro Gallery from July 10th until August 3rd.
11 years after the death of Stanley Kubrick, Ramos pays homage to the man who wrote and directed such films as A Clockwork Orange, Dr. Strangelove, The Shining and 2001: A Space Odyssey by transforming the galley into a retrospective space with graphic pieces celebrating the greatest and most respected filmmaker in history. Ramos faces his longtime obsession with Kubrick by painting interpretations of his films including the white-on-white habitations of 2001 to the Native American carpet patterns of The Shining to the matching white Droog uniforms in A Clockwork Orange. The emptiness and humanity of Stanley Kubrick’s subjects and characters and unique spacial design come to life thru Ramos’ unique eye.
I’m not sure if they will be releasing any limited edition prints of this art, but I hope so. You can see a preview of some of the art which will be on display at the show, after the jump. Warning, some of the art is NSFW.
