Un gran clásico de la ciencia ficción. Los doctores David Bowman y Frank Poole se encuentran a bordo del Discovery One con el objetivo de realizar una expedición a los confines del universo en busca de evidencias que confirmen que el ser humano no está solo. Les acompañan tres científicos en animación suspendida y HAL 9000, un ordenador excepcionalmente inteligente. Pero la misión se vuelve muy peligrosa cuando HAL empieza a fallar. ¿Se trata de un problema técnico? ¿O quizá Hal tiene voluntad propia? ¿Qué influencia ejerce el monolito? Con estas preguntas, surgen otras: ¿Cuál es nuestra esencia? ¿Qué lugar ocupamos en el cosmos? Uno de los grandes clásicos de la ciencia ficción, que ofrece una visión totalizadora sobre el origen de la consciencia y la evolución de la humanidad. Arthur C. Clarke colaboró estrechamente con Stanley Kubrick en la producción de la célebre película homónima. Reseña: «Clarke mezcla con maestría hallazgos, filosofía y un novedoso sentido del ritmo.» Time

Stanley Kubrick, más que ningún otro realizador contemporáneo, ha sabido proyectar en la pantalla el imaginario de nuestro tiempo: de Lolita a Eyes Wide Shut, de Atraco perfecto a El resplandor, de ¿Teléfono rojo? Volamos hacia Moscú a La naranja mecánica, de 2001, una odisea en el espacio a Barry Lyndon, de Senderos de gloria a La chaqueta metálica, sus películas han atraído a multitudes, dividido a la crítica, estimulado a sus colegas y a otros artistas. Su cine se revela único en su diversidad, no se reduce a ninguna fórmula. Kubrick mismo, a pesar de la gloria alcanzada, ha seguido siendo hasta su muerte un creador secreto y misterioso. En este libro, el primero aparecido en Francia y traducido a varios idiomas, el lector encontrará un retrato del realizador, un relato de su vida, un estudio sobre su relación con lo fantástico, reflexiones sobre su creación, testimonios de catorce colaboradores y un capítulo importante sobre su última obra, Eyes Wide Shut. Habiendo gozado de la confianza de Kubrick durante treinta años, Michel Clement ha podido reunir en este libro cuatro entrevistas, tanto más preciosas, por la reticencia del realizador a comentar sus películas. Esta edición definitiva, con filmografía y bibliografía actualizadas, contiene más de 400 ilustraciones, algunas inéditas. Un extraordinario homenaje a uno de los más grandes visionarios de nuestro tiempo.

More than two thousand years in the future, a small human colony thrives on the ocean paradise of Thalassa—sent there centuries ago to continue the human race before the Earth’s destruction. Thalassa’s resources are vast—and the human colony has lived a bucolic life there. But their existence is threatened when the spaceship Magellan arrives on their world—carrying one million refugees from Earth, fleeing the dying planet. Reputed to be Arthur C. Clarke’s favorite novel, The Songs of Distant Earth addresses several fascinating scientific questions unresolved in their time—including the question of why so few neutrinos from the sun have been measured on Earth. In addition, Clarke presents an inventive depiction of the use of vacuum energy to power spacecraft—and the technical logistics of space travel near the speed of light.

Celebrating the fiftieth anniversary of the film’s release, this is the definitive story of the making of 2001: A Space Odyssey, acclaimed today as one of the greatest films ever made, including the inside account of how director Stanley Kubrick and writer Arthur C. Clarke created this cinematic masterpiece. Regarded as a masterpiece today, 2001: A Space Odyssey received mixed reviews on its 1968 release. Despite the success of Dr. Strangelove, director Stanley Kubrick wasn’t yet recognized as a great filmmaker, and 2001 was radically innovative, with little dialogue and no strong central character. Although some leading critics slammed the film as incomprehensible and self-indulgent, the public lined up to see it. 2001’s resounding commercial success launched the genre of big-budget science fiction spectaculars. Such directors as George Lucas, Steven Spielberg, Ridley Scott, and James Cameron have acknowledged its profound influence. Author Michael Benson explains how 2001 was made, telling the story primarily through the two people most responsible for the film, Kubrick and science fiction legend Arthur C. Clarke. Benson interviewed Clarke many times, and has also spoken at length with Kubrick’s widow, Christiane; with visual effects supervisor Doug Trumbull; with Dan Richter, who played 2001’s leading man-ape; and many others. A colorful nonfiction narrative packed with memorable characters and remarkable incidents, Space Odyssey provides a 360-degree view of this extraordinary work, tracking the film from Kubrick and Clarke’s first meeting in New York in 1964 through its UK production from 1965-1968, during which some of the most complex sets ever made were merged with visual effects so innovative that they scarcely seem dated today. A concluding chapter examines the film’s legacy as it grew into it current justifiably exalted status.

A thousand years after being cast into the frozen void of space by the supercomputer HAL, Frank Poole is brought back to life—and thrust into a world more technically advanced than the one he left behind. He discovers a world of human minds directly interfacing with computers; genetically engineered dinosaur servants; and massive space elevators built around the Equator. He also discovers an impending threat to humanity—lurking within the enigmatic monoliths. To fight it, Poole must join forces with David Bowman and HAL, now fused into one corporeal consciousness—and the only being with the power to thwart the monoliths’ mysterious creators. A continuation of Arthur C. Clarke’s groundbreaking Space Odyssey series, 3001: The Final Odyssey takes readers on a journey full of mysticism, wonder, and suspense.

The Greatest Movie Never Made Ten books in one tell the fascinating tale of Kubrick's unfilmed masterpiece For 40 years, Kubrick fans and film buffs have wondered about the director's mysterious unmade film on Napoleon Bonaparte. Slated for production immediately following the release of 2001: A Space Odyssey, Kubrick's "Napoleon" was to be at once a character study and a sweeping epic, replete with grandiose battle scenes featuring thousands of extras. To write his original screenplay, Kubrick embarked on two years of intensive research; with the help of dozens of assistants and an Oxford Napoleon specialist, he amassed an unparalleled trove of research and preproduction material, including approximately 15,000 location scouting photographs and 17,000 slides of Napoleonic imagery. No stone was left unturned in Kubrick's nearly-obsessive quest to uncover every piece of information history had to offer about Napoleon. But alas, Kubrick's movie was not destined to be: the film studios, first M.G.M. and then United Artists, decided such an undertaking was too risky at a time when historical epics were out of fashion. TASCHEN's tribute to this unmade masterpiece makes Kubrick's valiant work on "Napoleon" available to fans for the first time. Based on the original 2009 limited edition which featured ten books hidden inside of a carved out reproduction of a Napoleon history book, this publication brings all the original elements together in one volume. Herein, all of the books from the original edition are reproduced in facsimile: correspondence, costume studies, location scouting photographs, research material, script drafts, and more. Kubrick's final draft is reproduced in its entirety. The text book features the complete original treatment, essays examining the screenplay in historical and dramatic contexts, an essay by Jean Tulard on Napoleon in cinema, and a transcript of interviews Kubrick conducted with Oxford professor Felix Markham. The culmination of years of research and preparation, this unique publication offers readers a chance to experience the creative process of one of cinema's greatest talents as well as a fascinating exploration of the enigmatic figure that was Napoleon Bonaparte.
