This one really looks to have an interesting tone to it. The design of the living quarters look classically sci-fi, almost to the point of being tongue-in-cheek.
Not to mention that the HAL9000 computer has a smiley face on it. If anything is a wink to the audience, it’s that.
Still, the film looks like it might be serious, psychological sci-fi. I can’t wait to see it, and this thoughtful, intelligent opening, like something straight out of Asimov, only gets me more excited. Check it out.
