2001: A Space Odyssey - Stanley Kubrick

I know that a lot of people, including my roommate, consider Stanley Kubrick's 2001: A Space Odyssey to not only be one of the great films of all-time, but one of their personal all-time favorites. It's not often we get to talk about the sci-fi masterpiece, but amazingly there's a new documentary coming out titled Beyond the Infinite: The Making of A Masterpiece made by Douglas Trumbull, the special effects supervisor on 2001. A trailer for the doc recently appeared on io9 (via SlashFilm) which I thought was worth featuring today. Oh and that great photo above comes from Quint's fantastic behind-the-scenes photo series on AICN.

Watch the trailer for Douglas Tumbull's Beyond the Infinite: The Making of A Masterpiece:

A documentary that really tells the story of the making of Stanley Kubrick's 1968 sci-fi masterpiece 2001: A Space Odyssey, not just the technical story but the human story, the personal story, the experiences of people who interacted with Kubrick that is really true to the style and look of 2001: A Space Odyssey.

Beyond the Infinite: The Making of A Masterpiece is being directed by Douglas Trumbull, a former special effects supervisor on 2001: A Space Odyssey, The Andromeda Strain, Close Encounters of the Third Kind, Star Trek and Blade Runner; and producer of films like Silent Running and Brainstorm. The video actually comes from Trumbull's own official website, where you can find even more info: douglastrumbull.com.

    Will we ever have such a genius as Kubrick making films? Who today comes close to the genius that Kubrick possesses? My answer would be Alfonso Cuaron.
  • Jos van den Atmos
    And I would agree with #6, especially if his new project were to come close to Children of Men.
  • The Man With No Name
    Who let Richard Attenborough on the set? P.S. this movie documentary looks like an instant classic.

    Can't get the trailer to work. Is it US only? Has anyone got a YouTube link, or something similar?

    Man, I miss Kubrick. He was 'before my time' and all but 2001 really changed my entire view on everything. I first watched it when I was around 13 or something and didn't understand it and kind of disliked it. It really grew on me over the years. I watch it once every year. I'm so ready for this documentary, really well-put together too. Never heard of Douglas Trumball before but his site is really fascinating and it shows he's an avid lover of sci-fi and his own work. I mean that in a good way. Like there are sci-fi nerds like Star Wars fans and sci-fi nerds like this Arthur C. Clark, just to name one.
