This 2001: A Space Odyssey recut trailer is a modern take on what the teaser for this epic film might look like today.
Featuring many sharp cuts between scenes and music that can only be described as robotic, the trailer could easily be mistaken for any other film coming out this summer. Showing the power of editing, and how it can date a film, this clip is an interesting endeavor highlighting the abilities of Film School Rejects, the people responsible for creating this re-creation. Breathing life back into a film that's widely popular and undeniably loved, this clip is a well-produced piece keeping the movie relevant and in the minds of the public.
Convincing, and providing interesting evidence for the way in which movies are promoted, the recut is a must-see for Kubrick fans.
