The tragedy of RoboCop, Terminator and other AIs

11 August 2015 5:33 AM, PDT | Den of Geek | See recent Den of Geek news »

We love RoboCop and Terminator 2 for their action and characters. But there’s also tragic element that makes their stories soar...

Nb: The following contains spoilers for Terminator 2, Terminator Genisys, Blade Runner and RoboCop.

Imagine you’re Detroit cop Alex Murphy. You’re an ordinary man in every respect: a loving husband and father with a home and a mortgage. But then you wake up one day and you aren’t Alex Murphy anymore. The hands you look down on are no longer your hands. Your memories have been replaced by directives.

The cinemagoers who made Paul Verhoeven’s RoboCop a hit in 1987 probably weren’t expecting a film about the nature of human existence, and some may not have consciously noted its philosophical undercurrent at all. But it’s this existentialist edge that, when coupled with its searing violence and black humour, makes for such an irresistible sci-fi movie. »

Question the nature of your reality in the first teaser for HBO's Westworld

10 August 2015 5:02 PM, PDT | JoBlo.com | See recent JoBlo news »

Michael Crichton's Westworld took place in a high-tech amusement park by the name of Delos; the park consisted of three "worlds," Roman World, Medieval World, and Westworld, all populated by highly realistic androids. Crichton's film mostly took place in Westworld, duh, and followed two guests (played by James Brolin and Richard Benjamin) as they enjoyed their stay at the most... Read More »

Robots Are Runnin’ Things In First Teaser For HBO’s Westworld

10 August 2015 2:41 PM, PDT | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

A major contender on HBO’s forthcoming TV slate is the sci-fi series Westworld. A revamped small screen adaptation of Michael Crichton’s 1973 movie of the same name, it’s packing in the pedigree both in front and behind the camera. So, why then has the network kept the show on such a short marketing leash? It’s likely due to the release date being pushed back from end of 2015 to the noncommittal “sometime in 2016.”

Nevertheless, yesterday saw the first new glimpse at the movie since December – when HBO included a brief shot at the show in its “year ender” promo – as a 30-second teaser clip aired during the True Detective finale. As opposed to a full-length trailer fleshing out the narrative beats, this is a tantalizing tonal appetizer of what’s to come.

It opens as Evan Rachel Wood’s character Dolores undergoes an interrogation, followed by momentary flashes of seemingly unconnected people. »

Westworld: Here's Your First Look at HBO's Michael Crichton Adaptation

10 August 2015 8:40 AM, PDT | POPSUGAR | See recent BuzzSugar news »

In 1973, author Michael Crichton wrote and directed a science-fiction movie called Westworld. Forty-two years later, HBO has released a trailer for its one-hour drama series inspired by Crichton's film. Starring Evan Rachel Wood, James Marsden, and Anthony Hopkins, the show is "a dark odyssey about the dawn of artificial consciousness and the future of sin." That's according to HBO's press release: the trailer doesn't give away much (or any) of the plot. In case you're wondering what might actually be happening, the trailer from the original movie (below) is pretty interesting. Of course, the series is only inspired by it, and things have clearly been changed. Take a look at the teaser above - the new show doesn't start until 2016. »

10 August 2015 6:00 AM, PDT | SoundOnSight | See recent SoundOnSight news »

Over the years, numerous films have seen themselves re-formatted and adapted to television series, with last year alone bringing series adaptations as varied as El Rey’s From Dusk Till Dawn and FX’s Fargo. HBO is poised to add another show to those ranks next year, as the channel announced that it would be adapting the 1973 Michael Crichton film Westworld into a tv series. The film, which starred Yul Brynner and James Brolin, marked the feature directorial debut of Crichton, who also wrote the screenplay.

Way back when, Arnold Schwarzenegger was set to star in an remake of Michael Crichton's 1973 feature Westworld. Schwarzenegger became governor, the remake was shelved, but then Tarsem Singh was brought in to direct... nothing came of that film, but now it has arrived at HBO with Jonathan Nolan (Interstellar, The Dark Knight) writing and directing (at least the first episode) and today HBO debuted the first trailer. The series takes place at a technologically advanced amusement park designed for rich vacationers with the goal of satisfying your every dream.

Get Ready to Have Artificial-Intelligence Nightmares With Westworld’s Teaser

9 August 2015 7:30 PM, PDT | Vulture | See recent Vulture news »

Some lucky gal named Dolores is asleep and having a nightmare for everyone to watch. The dream's called Westworld, and it'll be "a dark odyssey about the dawn of artificial consciousness and the future of sin," according to HBO. The dream will feature Anthony HopkinsEd Harris, Evan Rachel Wood, James Marsden, Thandie Newton, Jeffrey Wright, Rodrigo Santoro, Shannon Woodward, and a creepy, creepy narrator, among others; Jonathan Nolan is the executive producer, scribe, and director. (Wow, yep, this is a dream all right.) Westworld, which is being touted as an original series, was inspired by Michael Crichton's similarly titled 1973 sci-fi Western, which saw an eerie, stony-staring Yul Brynner terrorize a futuristic theme park as a robotic rogue. HBO reportedly wants this to be the network's next Game of Thrones–type phenomenon, but it looks like it's going to be more of an Ex Machina–meets–American Horror Story–type situation. »

HBO Releases Westworld Teaser Trailer with 30 Seconds of Stunning Footage

9 August 2015 6:27 PM, PDT | TheHDRoom | See recent TheHDRoom news »

The season finale of HBO's True Detective Season 2 tonight presented an extra special treat that has me ready to saddle up and ride off into the old west. That treat is now online and I highly recommend you give the first Westworld teaser trailer a few watches below at minimum.

Westworld is based off Michael Crichton’s 1973 movie that shares the same name. It's a mishmash of the old west and science fiction that the roughly 30 seconds of footage packed into the crazy trailer does a fantastic job of illustrating.

If you're already intrigued then get a load of the Westworld cast that includes Anthony Hopkins, Ed Harris, Evan Rachel Wood, James Marsden, Thandie Newton, Jeffrey Wright, Sidse Babett Knudsen, Rodrigo Santoro, Shannon Woodward, Ingrid Bolsø Berdal, Ben Barnes, Jimmi Simpson, Clifton Collins, Jr., Simon Quarterman and Angela Sarafyan.

Unfortunately, HBO won't be premiering Westworld until 2016 so try to holster any excitement this trailer stimulates. »
