How interesting! The studio has stated that 2001: A Space Odyssey's reissue going into wide release is contingent upon its box-office performance during the current 70mm run. Great! The studio reissues the film and, as noted in a previous thread, does almost zip to promote it. How can people plan on attending a 70mm screening of the film if they don't even know it's playing in the first place? Warner: Again, why did you even bother? How do you expect the film to perform even minimally if the studio is unwilling to spend the money to promote it? You strike up fresh 70mm prints with improved sound mixes, and to what end? MGM should have the film back under its distribution domain.
