Beyond Spectacular: Experiencing ‘2001’ in 70mm; ‘Interstellar’ is Next
By Alex Billington:

‘Which is what leads us right into the next iteration of 2001. After 10 years of Batman, billions in box office earned, Christopher Nolan is finally going big and bold and bring us his 2001: A Space Odyssey in the form of Interstellar. Or so I believe. Deep, down I have this feeling that in November we’re going to experience something on this scale, with this much thought put into it, with the same drive to make us believe in the power of the spectacular. To show us just how far our imagination can take us, how much the cinematic experience is still alive today. 2001 has influenced so many filmmakers ever since it was released, from Alfonso Cuarón to Steven Spielberg to Nolan, and will continue to influence as time goes on.’
