About this deal

Space ships dance with balletic grace and zero gravity is portrayed more convincingly than in anything I have seen since. A mysterious black monolith appears on Earth in prehistoric times, changing the course of human evolution. Along with every other musical piece employed throughout, the beautifully-balanced imaging exhibits a superbly clean and extensive mid-range, maintaining amazing detailed clarity and separation within the orchestration and at the highest frequencies.

Having previously watched the film on just about every home video platform known to man, right from the moment the classic first visual bursts onto the screen I was pretty much in home cinema heaven.

Plus, the special effects optical shots are still breathtaking, without losing detail — a common problem with older films. If you've chosen to block third-party cookies on your browser, your cookie preferences won't carry over from benq.

Behind the Scenes, Bonus Footage, Commentary: Commentary by Keir Dullea and Gary Lockwood, Documentaries: '2001: A Space Odyssey'; '2001: The Making of a Myth'; 'Vision of a Future Passed: The Prophecy of 2001'; 'What Is Out There? And the sense of awe just grew as the film shifts into the Dawn of Man sequence, before leading to actual drooling as we get to experience Kubrick’s remarkable vision/recreation of space in its new 4K, high dynamic range glory. You have to make an effort to engage your wider knowledge of recent history and don't expect to be passively entertained like a three-year-old.

The collection features exclusive artwork from Matt Ferguson and Florey for Vice Press, plus unique premiums, housed in innovative numbered packaging.

I guess some movie purists might bristle at the idea of regrading Kubrick's stunning visuals for an HDR world.Even more remarkably, Kubrick manages to use his uniquely ‘pure’ cinematic style to tell what’s actually an unusually complex and profound story of man’s first interactions with an ancient, impossibly advanced alien civilization. BenQ home cinema projectors embody our belief to “Convey the truest color and impart the deepest feelings to the viewer. Huge amounts of the film pass by without a single word of dialogue, and, in truth, without anything you would normally think of as narrative progression.
