Press Scans :: July 2016 Australasia Empire – 50 Greatest Sci-Fi Moments
  Posted By: keir dullea online |      No Comments

Along with the event images post before this one, I’ve added a new scan for the press section. This time it’s from the Australasia July 2016 edition of Empire magazine. Here they name their 50 greatest Sci-Fi moments. They chose as the number one greatest the HAL-9000 disconnection scene from 2001: A SPACE ODYSSEY. I’d have to say I completely agree with them. Their top ten was pretty impressive including the chestburster scene from Alien where Kane (John Hurt) gave bith, the Roy Batty (Rutger Hauer) dying scene from Blade Runner, both films directed by Ridley Scott. Number 5 was the final scene at the end of Franklin J. Schaffner’s Planet of the Apes where George Taylor (Charleton Heston) and Nova (Linda Harrison) find the ruined Statue of Liberty on the beach. They also named the Ellen Ripley (Sigourney Weaver) “Get away from her you bitch!” scene from James Cameron’s Aliens. Considering how great 2001: A SPACE ODYSSEY is as a whole, I’m pretty impressed they chose the disconnection scene considering the stargate sequence, as well as the Dawn of Man opening and it’s iconic moment of the three million year jumpcut from the bone to the weapons platform. I’m including the write up in this post, but to see the scans, please click on any of the links below.

HAL SHUTS DOWN 2001: A SPACE ODYSSEY (1968)

There have been many other scary movie supercomputers: in 1965, just three years before Stanley Kubrick’s 2001: A Space Odyssey, Jean-Luc Godard’s Alphaville saw the titular city ruled by a data-bastard called Alpha 60. But none have ever been able to upgrade to the heights of the psychotic HAL 9000. There’s his eerie lone red peeper, staring out like a robotic version of the Eye of Sauron. There’s his mellow but menacing voice, provided by Canadian actor Douglas Rain. And then there’s his unforgettable demise, as astronaut David Bowman (Keir Dullea) races to shut him down after he’s pressed “Power Off” on his human shipmate. It could have played out as an action scene, with HAL issuing dark threats and hurling obstacles. Instead, there’s a strange poignancy as he suffers the computer equivalent of a mental breakdown. “I’m afraid, Dave… Dave, my mind is going… I can feel it… I can feel it… My mind is going,” he monotones, pitifully, voice slowing like a pitched-down 12-inch. Then he sings a song: Daisy Bell, the 19th-century children’s rhyme IBM selected for one of its computers to croon as a demonstration in 1961. Set to a background of hissing oxygen, it’s a raw, intimate and surprisingly emotional moment. Not bad for a scene involving a box talking to a man in a helmet. It’s easy to imagine that when the machines fi nally take over Earth for real, this will be their go-to weepie.

Seventeen Minutes of Original Footage found in Kansas Vault from “2001” Kubrick Extended Cut
  Posted By: keir dullea online |      No Comments

According to a new article on SlashFilm.com, seventeen minutes of footage has been found from Stanley Kubrick’s original cut of 2001: A SPACE ODYSSEY. The film was originally 160 minutes long, but for pacing reasons Kubrick cut it back to the length it is now. I for one would love to see a new home video release with the footage restored and two versions on the disc. Now there are some purists who will say to leave the film as it is, but why not allow Douglas Trumbull to restore the footage and let the critics speak. I’m always a fan of the longer version of any film. Sometimes when scenes are cut, for whatever reason, it may not be so good for the context of the film. For instance, in James Cameron’s blockbuster Titanic, the scene where Rose (Kate Winslet) went to the stern of the ship to jump off and before Jack (Leonardo DiCaprio) met her, Cameron left out an integral scene where Rose after leaving the lounge where her mother and other women were gossiping about Rose’s upcoming nuptials, with Rose sitting there almost catatonic. The scene entailed Rose returning to her stateroom where she begins tearing at the pins and combs in her hair, frantically trying to remove them. Then she also tries to get out of the corset she’s been jammed into as with the convention of the time. The scene shows her frustration at not being able to fulfill her own destiny without the constraints on her sex. This scene for me would have added a little more gravitas the Rose’s reasons for attempting to jump from the ship. Without the scene it just plays that she’s this petulant little teenager. I’ll be posting the article after the cut, but there is reportedly one scene where Moonwatcher (Dan Richter) is filmed at a low angle looking up at The Monolith clarifying the connection between the two. That would have been an integral scene to show The Monolith was definitely having an impact on the progression of the violence in the ape community and its influence on Moonwatcher. What I say is neither Eyes Wide Shut or AI: Artificial Intelligence are the films Kubrick meant for us to see. Eyes Wide Shut was edited further from Kubrick’s original edit after his 1999 death. With AI: Artificial Intelligence Steven Spielberg certainly did not make the film Kubrick envisioned.

17 Minutes of Lost ‘2001: A Space Odyssey’ Footage Found

Almost like discovering a monolith buried underground, Warner Brothers recently found 17 minutes of lost footage from Stanley Kubrick‘s masterpiece 2001: A Space Odyssey in a salt-mine vault in Kansas. But before you go and drop acid in anticipation of an extended cut of the film, consider the slippery slope this footage constitutes. One, just because the footage was found doesn’t necessarily mean it’s going to make it into the public eye. Two, Kubrick himself reportedly cut the footage from the film because he felt it created pacing issues. And three, the film is just about perfect as is, do you really want to screw it up?

Hit the jump for more details on the footage as well as what it might contain.

The Film Stage first alerted us to the news of this footage. They point us to a reports from Forgotten Silver and Blastr about an event in Toronto where Douglas Trumbull and David Larson, who were working on the now canceled documentary 2001: Beyond the Infinite: The Making of a Masterpiece, mentioned the footage had been found in perfect condition. Though they weren’t sure what the plans for the footage are, they did show images of never before seen scenes that will be in an upcoming photo book. It was unclear if these images were from the found footage or not.

According the 2001 IMDB page, when the film premiered in 1968, it ran 160 minutes. Kubrick then went in and trimmed a good 19 minutes or so. It’s assumed this would be the footage that was found in Kansas. Here’s what the IMDB says was cut:

  • Some shots from the “Dawn of Man” sequence and a new scene was inserted where an ape pauses with the bone it is about to use as a tool. The new scene was a low-angle shot of the monolith, done in order to portray and clarify the connection between the man-ape using the tool and the monolith.
  • Some shots of Frank Poole jogging in the centrifuge.
  • An entire sequence of several shots in which Dave Bowman searches for the replacement antenna part in storage.
  • A scene where HAL severs radio communication between the “Discovery” and Poole’s pod before killing him. This scene explains a line that stayed in the film in which Bowman addresses HAL on the subject.
  • Some shots of Poole’s space walk before he is killed.

While none of that sounds particularly exciting, new Kubrick is new Kubrick and it would be pretty cool for this footage to make its way onto some sort of epic, mega Blu-ray release one day. Still, I don’t know if I’d want to see it edited into the film. Kubrick cut it, why would anyone want to go against his wishes? But, if there is any money to be made from this footage, Warner’s will surely find a way.

Do you think this footage should be released? Do you want to see it? Do you want to see it cut back into the movie?

“2001: A Space Odyssey” 41 Stills, Production Stills & Posters Added
  Posted By: keir dullea online |      No Comments

Just when I think I’m done with 2001: A SPACE ODYSSEY, it pulls me back in! I’ve been the lucky inheritor of a lot of photos from the film. There are quite a few of Keir as Dave Bowman, but I’ve also decided to include the other images I’ve acquired. Some are of Gary Lockwood (Frank Poole), William Sylvester (Heywood Floyd), Heather Downham and Penny Brahms who played stewardesses, and a few shots of the Discovery, life pods and Clavius Moonbase, and the dig zone where the monolith (TMA 1) was found. There are also included a few production stills of Keir with Gary and director Stanley Kubrick on location inside the ferriswheel, plus some original artwork posters from the film. I’m not entirely sure I’m completely done with 2001: A SPACE ODYSSEY, that will depend on if I find anymore. I hope you like the high quality of the photos, though some are the original negatives.

Keir & Gary At The 40th Anniversary Screening of “2001: A Space Odyssey”
  Posted By: keir dullea online |      No Comments

I’m trying to get some of the 2001: A SPACE ODYSSEY backlog cleaned up. I know these are from 2008, but I thought they’d be a treat for Keir’s fans and to let you all see some of the people who are still with us who made that amazing film. In some of the photos you can see Keir, Gary Lockwood (Frank Poole), Dan Richter (Moonwatcher) and some of the behind-the-scenes guys like Douglas Trumbull who brought us some of the amazing effects from the film. The event was hosted by actor Tom Hanks and featured NASA Astronaut Buzz Aldrin.
