Ahead of the digitally restored film’s special limited U.K. release on Nov. 28 as part of the British Film Institute’s “Sci-Fi: Days of Fears and Wonder” season, a new trailer commission by the BFI and Warner Bros. has now been unveiled. Created by Ignition Creative London, the trailer is the first for the title in four decades and uses Hal as the central figure to create an intensely eerie experience.
In a statement released Tuesday, Jan Harlan, Kubrick’s executive producer, described the clip as “the best trailer for this film I have ever seen! To use Hal’s voice is brilliant.”
In addition to the screening, 2001: A Space Odyssey stars Keir Dullea and Gary Lockwood will take part in a panel discussion at the BFI Southbank in London on Nov. 28. Other films in the sci-fi season, which kicks off Tuesday, include titles such as Barbarella, Brazil, A Clockwork Orange and 1984, while a series of complementary events will run alongside.
Watch the trailer above.
