Written by JURASSIC PARK’s Michael Crichton – and bearing a remarkable resemblance to that story, but replacing genetically-engineered dinosaurs with humanoids – WESTWORLD thrusts us into Delos, a fully-computerized theme park where the cast members are robots and anything goes. Visitors to one of the three areas of Delos – Medieval World, Roman World or the titular West World – can engage in bacchanalian gluttony, wanton sexuality and an orgy of man on robot violence… until The Gunslinger (Yul Brynner) moseys into town with an evil, electronic gleam in his eye and takes a stand for the robots, and more and more robots begin to misbehave. Soon, the theme parks are in tumult as the human visitors are overpowered by their circuit-driven peers.
But the story doesn’t end there, as 1976’s FUTUREWORLD shows us what happened after West World was shuttered and Delos was opened with a new area, Future World, simulating an orbiting space station with holographic boxing, planetary skiing and, of course, dangerous robotic liaisons. We’re presenting these films in their original aspect ratios and digital restorations as part of a WESTWORLD / FUTUREWORLD double feature.
