The year 2001 might have already come and gone but 2001: A Space Odyssey, Stanley Kubrick's science fiction masterpiece, will forever be timeless. Even though we don't have civilian space stations and fully functioning AI just yet, you can't deny that the film's distinct style still looks pretty damn gorgeous today — and now you can wear it right on your body!
As part of their year-long homage to 2001, Alamo Drafthouse Cinemas and Mondo have partnered up to make a stunning new collection of screen-printed shirts inspired by some of the most iconic imagery from the film. Each piece in the collection will be available in sizes from XS to 4XL and will ship sometime in the next 2-3 weeks, so you'll be able to make it a regular part of your wardrobe long before the films' 50th anniversary hits next year in 2018.
First up, the Dawn Of Man t-shirt, which definitely makes me want to listen to "Thus Spake Zarathrusta" on repeat:
After that comes the Computer Malfunction shirt, which is probably the worst error message you could ever hope to see in your life:
Next up, The Daisy Bell shirt, which recreates the famous sequence where Dave shuts off Hal 9000 for good:
Then we have the Transcendence t-shirt, which is just as trippy as the movie's psychedelic ending sequence:
Finally, space is cold, so you're also going to want this zip-up hoodie with the 2001: A Space Odyssey logo printed on it:
The full collection is on sale now, and you can check it out, as well as other Kubrick-inspired fashion, on Mondo's website. Do any of them catch your eye? Let us know which is your favorite in the comments!
Speaking of the future, how right was Futurama?
