STANLEY KUBRICK’S SCI-FI CLASSIC “2001: A SPACE ODYSSEY”

COMING TO IMAX® THEATRES FOR THE FIRST TIME EVER

The one-week IMAX engagement follows the ongoing success of the 
50th anniversary release of the “unrestored” 70mm print

            BURBANK, CA – August 1, 2018 – Continuing the 50th anniversary celebration of Stanley Kubrick’s science fiction masterpiece “2001: A Space Odyssey,” Warner Bros. Pictures is bringing the film to more than 350 IMAX® theatres across North America for one week only, beginning on August 24th.  This marks the first time ever that moviegoers will have the opportunity to view the seminal film on the largest possible screen, creating a truly immersive experience.  The announcement was made today by Jeff Goldstein, President, Domestic Distribution, Warner Bros. Pictures.

The IMAX engagement comes on the heels of the widely successful “unrestored” 70mm film release of “2001: A Space Odyssey,” which was overseen by acclaimed filmmaker Christopher Nolan, a lifelong admirer of Kubrick.

As part of the week-long IMAX release, four select theatres will be showcasing the feature on IMAX® 70mm film: AMC Universal Citywalk IMAX, Universal City, AMC Lincoln Square IMAX, New York City, AMC Metreon IMAX, San Francisco, and Ontario Place Cinesphere IMAX, Toronto.  The IMAX 70mm film print, to be shown exclusively in these four locations, was created from the recently released “unrestored” 70mm print—a true photochemical film recreation struck from new printing elements made from the original camera negative with no digital tricks, remastered effects, or revisionist edits.  The additional IMAX theaters will be presenting a brand new 4K restoration of “2001: A Space Odyssey” in IMAX® with Laser and IMAX® Xenon projection formats.

Tickets for the IMAX engagement go on sale this Friday, August 3rd.

            Widely considered among the greatest films of the 20th century, “2001: A Space Odyssey” was originally released on April 4, 1968, igniting the imaginations of both critics and audiences.  With the film, Kubrick redefined the limits of moviemaking and cemented his legacy as one of the most revolutionary and influential motion picture directors of all time.

            “2001: A Space Odyssey” was directed and produced by Kubrick from a screenplay he co-wrote with legendary science fiction author Arthur C. Clarke.  The film stars Keir Dullea and Gary Lockwood.

About “Ready Player One”:

From filmmaker Steven Spielberg comes the science fiction action adventure “Ready Player One,” based on Ernest Cline’s bestseller of the same name, which has become a worldwide phenomenon.

The film is set in 2045, with the real world on the brink of chaos and collapse.  But people have found salvation in the OASIS, an immersive virtual universe where you can go anywhere, do anything, be anyone.  The OASIS was created by the brilliant and eccentric James Halliday (Mark Rylance).  When Halliday died, he left his immense fortune, and total control of the OASIS, to the first person to win three keys, unlocking the door to a digital Easter egg he hid somewhere in his seemingly infinite creation.  His challenge launched a game that gripped the entire world, but after five years the scoreboard remained tauntingly empty…until now.

An unlikely young hero named Wade Watts (Tye Sheridan)—under his avatar name, Parzival—finally conquers the first contest, instantly becoming a celebrity…and a target.  Ruthless corporate mogul Nolan Sorrento (Ben Mendelsohn) proves he will stop at nothing to beat Wade and take over the OASIS, and suddenly the virtual stakes are all-too-real.  Ultimately realizing he cannot win alone, Wade joins forces with his friends—now the High Five (Sheridan, Olivia Cooke, Lena Waithe, Philip Zhao, Win Morisaki).  Together, they are hurled into a reality-bending treasure hunt through a fantastical universe of discovery and danger to save the OASIS.

            Spielberg directed the film from a screenplay by Zak Penn and Ernest Cline, based on the book by Cline.  Donald De Line, Kristie Macosko Krieger, Spielberg and Dan Farah produced the film, with Adam Somner, Daniel Lupi, Chris deFaria and Bruce Berman serving as executive producers.  “Ready Player One” stars Tye Sheridan, Olivia Cooke, Ben Mendelsohn, Lena Waithe, T.J. Miller, Philip Zhao, Win Morisaki, Hannah John-Kamen, with Simon Pegg and Mark Rylance.

            Behind the scenes, Spielberg collaborated with director of photography Janusz Kaminski, production designer Adam Stockhausen, editors Michael Kahn and Sarah Broshar, and costume designer Kasia Walicka Maimone.  The score is by composer Alan Silvestri.

Warner Bros. Pictures and Amblin Entertainment present, in association with Village Roadshow Pictures, an Amblin Production, a De Line Pictures Production, a Steven Spielberg Film, “Ready Player One.”  Opening on Thursday, March 29, 2018 in 2D and 3D in select theatres and IMAX®, the film will be distributed by Warner Bros. Pictures, a Warner Bros. Entertainment Company, and in select territories by Village Roadshow Pictures. This film has been rated PG-13.
