The upcoming HBO-series Westworld, based on the legendary Michael Crichton- movie from 1973 about a futuristic theme park whose robot personnel suddenly goes berserk on the visitors, gets a short teaser.
This looks very promising and while the original is mostly famous for Yul Brunner’s chilling performance as robot cowboy (brilliantly recast with Ed Harris!) and the original premise, it’s not an untouchable classic and leaves definitely room for improvement, even if that means to suspend the inimitable 70s charm.
Other cast members are Evan Rachel Wood, Jeffrey Wright and Anthony Hopkins. Westworld will debut on HBO in 2016.
