Each title will build towards the numbered The Film Vault collection, comprising some of the greatest titles in cinema.

“We at Warner Bros. Discovery and Universal Pictures Home Entertainment are incredibly excited to launch the second wave of our The Film Vault range, adding four more of our most iconic and beloved films. As true cinephiles ourselves, it’s been a pleasure collaborating with Vice Press again and we hope fans love the new artwork, packaging, and extras as much as we do. After the success of Wave 1, we listened closely to fan feedback and have paid special attention to making the packaging even more secure, and including posters of the brand-new key art in-pack. Whilst the first wave of The Film Vault titles was a UK exclusive, our ambitions have grown for the new titles so we are now rolling out globally, ensuring more fans around the world can access these amazing collections. We cannot wait for fans and collectors to get their hands on our new range and celebrate the films they love.”

The four titles are on 4K UHD for ultimate home cinema picture and sound, and packaged in an acetate slip-cover detailing the title’s numbered entry in the collection, with newly commissioned key art from Vice Press by renowned artists Matt Ferguson and Florey, printed on a rigid clamshell outer case with a magnetic clasp, that contains a digipak housing a 4K Ultra HD copy of the film and a Blu-rayTM disc, a branded envelope, deluxe artcards, and in some cases a reproduction ‘in world artefact’ from the film. Completing each set is a new premium collectable – a beautifully etched and individually numbered crystal display plaque, bearing each film’s title treatment and motif.

2001: A SPACE ODYSSEY (1968)
Stanley Kubrick’s dazzling, Academy Award®-winning achievement is a compelling drama of man vs. machine, a stunning meld of music and motion. Kubrick (who co-wrote the screenplay with Arthur C. Clarke) first visits our prehistoric ape-ancestry past, then leaps millennia (via one of the most mind-blowing jump cuts ever) into colonised space, and ultimately whisks astronaut Bowman (Keir Dullea) into uncharted space, perhaps even into immortality. “Open the pod bay doors, HAL.” Let an awesome journey unlike any other begin.

Premium collectible - individually numbered crystal display plaque
Rigid clamshell box with magnetic closure + acetate O-ring, housing a 4K Ultra HD copy of the film and a Blu-rayTM special features disc

APOLLO 13 (1995)
Ron Howard directs Academy Award® Winner Tom Hanks, Kevin Bacon, Bill Paxton, Gary Sinise and Ed Harris in this riveting suspense-thriller from Imagine Entertainment about a "routine" space flight.
