New Clothing Line Celebrates 50 Years of 2001: A Space Odyssey
Since premiering in 1968, 2001: A Space Odyssey has earned its status as a cinematic icon. Stanley Kubrick’s masterpiece turns 50 next year. To mark the anniversary, Mondo released an official line of apparel that channels the striking style of the film.
The collection includes four screen-printed T-shirts, each priced at $25. "Dawn of Man" captures 2001’s memorable opening scene (it’s the perfect companion to the one-sixth scale official monolith toy released last year).
There’s also the "Computer Malfunction" T-shirt for fans who identify with the movie’s AI antagonist. The "Daisy Bell" shirt features a still from one of the film’s most iconic scenes, and "Transcendence" evokes the mind-bending visuals of the final sequence. If you’re interested in something more simple, the line includes a black hoodie with the 2001: A Space Odyssey logo printed in white.
According to Nerdist, the clothing collection is part of a collaboration between Mondo and Alamo Drafthouse in honor of the film’s release five decades ago. The celebration kicked off on April 3 with nationwide screenings and will continue up until the 50-year anniversary in April of next year.
