Looks promising.

Ed Harris in Yul Brynner's role.

Love the fly on the woman's eyeball illustrating the indifference of the cyborg. Chillingly image considering we know that Robot 'Amok time' is coming. As for Ed Harris you must have good eyes since I didn't see him once!

But can you hear him?

Looking forward to this. Just bought Westworld and Futureworld on blu ray as it's been awhile since I've watched them and then they announce this!

I recall catching glimpses of one those films while walking past a local drive-in one night with some other people. Natureally I was too young to be doing this alone and most probably the second film. Because the first was only made in 1973, I was barely abo to walk back then, and second in 1976, which could mean that I saw the part of the first on a double bill.

Most likely!

I had memories of a darken rooms with rows of monitors, but that could have been Logan's Run.

Here the second film in full.

This really looks promising.....


I wonder if they still get the hands wrong in this one.

Late sharing this, but I'm seriously excited about this show, particularly as I'm a big fan of the movie.

I'm actually more excited by this than the majority of soon to be released films!

Premiere in the U.S on the 2nd of october apparently.

Full trailer here:

Can't wait for this. Loved the film. Also I believe there was a parody of the film in one of the Sinister Dexter strips. Although my old brain might just be imaging things there. Maybe someone can confirm or deny.

"Way out West", Prog 1221.  Not quite a parody, the duo have to capture a syn-human "actor" in a virtual reality style wild west show which is going to be converted into a gladiatorial show.

I'm stoked for this. I think it could really have legs as a TV show, especially if they develop the robots into characters with personalities. Kind of like Ex Machina, but with cowboys.

Cowboys, like aliens, zombies and explosions, are scientifically proven* to improve anything.

There's the other two world to explore too-Roman World and Medieval World, although that might necessitate a change in title!!!!!

Plenty of potential though and a brilliant cast they've managed to assemble.

Very much looking forward to this. The original film is one of my favourites, and I remember watching Futureworld in the cinema when it came out (yes, that old) and thinking even then that it looked like a crappy TV movie. No hint of other 'worlds' from the trailer vut then I've only just watched it without sound so I could be wrong.
