Man hat in einer Salzmine (!) 17 Minuten aus Stanley Kubricks „2001“ gefunden, die bislang als verschollen galten.
Warner Bros. has evidently found 17 minutes of lost footage from Stanley Kubrick’s sci-fi classic “2001: A Space Odyssey” in a Kansas salt-mine vault, according to Forgotten Silver (via Slash Film and The Film Stage).
Douglas Trumbull (the film’s special photographic effects supervisor) revealed the exciting news at a recent screening of “2001” in Toronto. Trumbull said he wasn’t sure what the studio plans to do with the footage, which was found in pristine, “perfectly preserved” condition and is considered an important piece of movie history.
According to its IMDB page, “2001’s” original running time was 160 minutes when it debuted in 1968. Kubrick subsequently removed 19 minutes, and it’s presumed that this was the footage that was discovered in Kansas.
