The official word from IMAX spokesperson Warren Betts: “There are no plans to release 2001: A Space Odyssey to IMAX.” Roger Ebert said last week that a 2001/IMAX release is “almost inevitable.” Warner Bros. to IMAX executives: “Forget it. We wouldn’t make back the money we’d spend on properly transferring the 70mm interpositive to IMAX. The world has moved on. Under 30s don’t know from Stanley Kubrick or monoliths or Johann Strauss. Releasing an IMAX version of the The Last Samurai, however, might work.”
