For these the-movies-are-dying, I'll-stream-it-at-home times, Christopher Nolan has brought out the big guns.The day after premiering the "unrestored" "2001" at the Cannes Film Festival, Nolan was still buzzing from the experience.The project came about while Nolan was preparing the home entertainment release of "Dunkirk," his Oscar-winning 2017 hit that grossed $525 million worldwide for Warner Bros. The studios' vice president of restoration, Ned Price, offered Nolan a look at a reel of the film's original 70-mm camera negatives – stored for preservation, not distribution.Bowled over, Nolan suggested the studio restore the negatives, but not in the digitized way, with 4K resolution, most common in film restoration. Both versions are valid, Nolan says, but they are different things – even different media. Nolan contributed to that as well, as he does for the DVD releases of his own films.Nolan estimates he's seen "2001" dozens of times in recent months.
