The original 70mm version of Stanley Kubrick’s revolutionary sci-fi film 2001: A Space Odyssey will be presented at the Cannes Film Festival by director Christopher Nolan for its 50th anniversary. Kubrick’s family will be among those who will attend the screening, which will present a new 70mm copy made from the original negative, no digital retouching required.

Nolan worked closely with Warner Bros. on the re-mastering process. Kubrick’s wife Christiane said, “I’m delighted that 2001: A Space Odyssey will be reissued in 70mm, and that Cannes has chosen to honor it. If Stanley were alive today, we know he would be in admiration of the films of Christopher Nolan. And so, on behalf of Stanley’s family, I would personally like to thank Christopher for supporting his film.”

The screening will take place on Saturday, May 12 with a release of the 70mm version in theaters slated for May 18.

In other entertainment news, the full-length trailer for Westworld season 2 has finally arrived.
