What if '2001: A Space Odyssey' were a modern blockbuster?7/28/2012
In 1968, Stanley Kubrick created the iconic science fiction film, “2001: A Space Odyssey,” with a lot of subtlety and very limited bass. Today, it seems like every sci-fi flick is a super-expensive blockbuster featuring fast cuts, terrifying monsters, and a soundtrack designed to blow out every eardrum in a ten-mile radius. So what would happen if someone decided to ruin “2001” by making it as a modern movie? While you can be sure some Hollywood exec somewhere is salivating at the very thought of a gritty “2001” reboot, Film School Rejects have taken it upon themselves to recut the trailer into something suitable for today’s audiences. If you’re a fan of strobing lights and oppressive drums, we're sure you’ll love it; if you’re a fan of classic sci-fi, you might throw up.
Would you see the summer blockbuster version of “2001?”
