1969 70mm re-launch poster for 2001: A SPACE ODYSSEY (Stanley Kubrick, USA/UK, 1968)
Art Director: Mike Kaplan
Poster source: Heritage Auctions
“When MGM decided to re-launch the 70mm prints of Stanley Kubrick’s 2001: A Space Odyssey into New York theatres, the studio decided to revamp the ad campaign as well. The film had been in continuous release since April 1968 and due to that popularity, the studio decided it was time to refresh the ads. The two new posters that were created capitalized on the film’s surreal ending and the news that young people were flocking to the film. The tag line, “The Ultimate Trip” was used and the posters were distributed in a campaign in New York City where the posters were “wilded” onto walls, fences, and construction sight barricades.” –Heritage Auctions
“The StarChild image was selected by Kaplan to re-launch Stanley Kubrick’s masterpiece in its full 70mm technical presentation, the format in which the film was meant to be experienced by new and returning audiences. Kubrick had placed an embargo on using the Star Child in any publicity so its appearance in print and poster a year after 2001’s premiere was startling, conveying an immediate human dimension to his epic vision. The unprecedented re-launch was enormously successful, and with THE ULTIMATE TRIP slogan, cemented its recognition as a cultural phenomenon.” –Mike Kaplan, The Movie Posters
Happy Birthday Stanley Kubrick, born July 26, 1928

What’s in store for me in the direction i don’t take?

“… the moments when everything is open, when all options are present, and all is undecided – mere destinies unfolding. Our choices shift into one plane of existence, the extension of every path still available, until we pick the red tie instead of the blue; harbor anger instead of compassion; attempt to fix it or break it; and all our possibilities collapse into the singular of what is, rippling outward from the moment of decision to affect our lives in ways unknown… The noise at the back of our mind wondering anxiously, What’s in store for me in the direction I don’t take?”
