Ikarie XB 1
A film by Jindřich Polák
Czechoslovakia, 1963

Blu-ray Special Edition

"Polák's groundbreaking celestial saga is every bit as impressive today as it was in 1963. Don't tell me Kubrick missed this one..."
Joe Dant
e

Jindřich Polák's pioneering and much-imitated feature Ikarie XB 1 is one of the cornerstones of contemporary science fiction cinema. It predates Star Trek and Kubrick’s 2001: A Space Odyssey and was clearly an influence on both - as well as countless other sci-fi films and TV shows that followed.

This region-free Blu-ray special edition presents the film from a new 4K restoration and includes the short film The Most Ordinary of Occupations (Nejvšednější povolání, 1963), a filmed appreciation by Kim Newman, 20-page booklet... and more!

Release Date: March 2019
