Truly great movies don’t come along every year. Unless you count Kevin Hart or Kevin James movies. Those guys are classic. We need a buddy movie with those two. 100 to 1 odds they’d do a fish out of water movie. Without those two, we’re left with such movies as Stanley Kubrick’s 2001: A Space Odyssey. 2014 plants fifty candles on the spaceship-shaped cake of his film masterpiece. TASCHEN, who make amazing books, comes out with the very special, The Making of Stanley Kubrick’s ‘2oo1: A Space Odyssey’ ($750).
Four volumes of material documenting the amazing set designs, special effects and very unique correspondence between Kubrick and his co-screenwriter, Arthur C. Clarke. In effect, a peek at how talented people collaborated and produced something groundbreaking.
Additional materials include never-before-seen photographs taken straight from the Kubrick Archives. The book comes in a monolith-shaped metallic box and a limited run of 1,500 copies.
