What does the world look like through a robot’s eyes?
It was this question, asked by Jurassic Park's writer Michael Crichton, which sparked a cinematic revolution back in 1973 with the release of Westworld - the first film ever to use CGI. Now, over thirty years later, HBO is releasing a TV adaptation of this iconic tale. And it looks awesome!
Westworld was a sci-fi western set in a high-tech theme park, staffed by robots. The narrative kicks off when the park's computer system breaks down, which in turn allows the robots to run riot and terrorize their guests. The new TV series will follow a similar thread, helmed by Jonathan Nolan and J.J. Abrams, and starring Anthony Hopkins, Ed Harris, James Marsden, Evan Rachel Wood, Jeffrey Wright, Ingrid Bolsø Berdal and Thandie Newton.
However, we've just stumbled across a great behind-the-scenes video (below) which gives a real insight into how the groundbreaking original was created. It's a fascinating watch and, to be honest, well worth it for the outfits alone.
Check out the short:
The series is set to hit screens in 2016, so there is still plenty of time to take a look at the original movie!
