DELOS in Westworld

Earlier this week, we posted eight mind-blowing Westworld theories — speculation from fans about possible twists and turns. One of the theories suggested that perhaps Westworld is not the only theme park that DELOS offers at this compound. As you probably know, the original 1973 movie took place not only in Westworld but also in Roman World and Medieval World. The sequel brought us to FutureWorldCould these other theme parks also appear in the HBO series?

After the jump, we have the definitive answer (sort of). But be warned, if any confirmation or denial may be considered a spoiler in your eyes, you may not want to continue. Will we see other worlds in Westworld? Find out, after the jump.

Frequency interview: showrunner Jeremy Carver

At Comic-Con, we spoke with Jeremy Carver, the creator of The CW’s Frequency TV series, about gender-swapping the 2000 movie to make the show a father/daughter story. When Carver attended a Television Critics Association party over the summer, we got to go further into the nuts and bolts of the series with him.

The pilot establishes a similar story to the movie. 2016 cop Raimy Sullivan (Peyton List) speaks with her father Frank (Riley Smith), who died in 1996, over a ham radio. She prevents his death but that leads to other unintended consequences. We spoke with Carver about how Frequency moves forward week to week.  Read More »

The Purge TV show

The Purge movies have been reliable moneymakers for Universal, Blumhouse Productions, and Platinum Dunes.

the dark tower tv series

Even by fantasy franchise standards, MRC’s adaptation of Stephen King‘s The Dark Tower looks pretty damn ambitious. Next year brings the much-anticipated movie starring Idris Elba and Matthew McConaughey, but that’s just the first piece in the puzzle. Also in the works is a companion TV series that’ll fill in some of the the universe’s intricate backstory. Elba will reprise his role for the show, as will his Dark Tower movie co-star Tom Taylor. But the project is also looking to cast a younger actor who can play the teenage version of Elba’s character.  Read More »

Lethal Weapon

In 1987, the movie Lethal Weapon paired Mel Gibson and Danny Glover in the first of four buddy cop films. It made Gibson a star, proving he was more than just Mad Max, and Glover made “I’m too old for this shit” a catch phrase that has lasted the decades. For 2016, Fox introduces a new Riggs and Murtaugh for the small screen, played by Clayne Crawford and Damon Wayans respectively.

Matt Miller created the TV incarnation, with producers Dan Lin and Jennifer Gwartz. McG directed the pilot. At their TCA panel, Lin said the show wouldn’t interfere with any future movie plans and that they were considering incorporating the characters Leo Getz and Lorna Cole, played by Joe Pesci and Rene Russo in the films, later in the series. We spoke with Miller, Lin and Gwartz at the Fox party for the Television Critics Association.  Read More »

Westworld premiere synopsis

The Westworld pilot is excellent. Co-creators Jonathan Nolan and Lisa Joy gradually introduce their high-tech theme park, which is home to all sorts of thrills and horrors. Most of the exposition expected from a pilot doesn’t come into play until episode two, and by that point, you’re completely invested in the world and characters, so every piece of information goes down smoothly. At the start of Westworld, the worldbuilding is subtle and transfixing, but the drama is every bit as captivating.

There’s so much the pilot gets right. Before it airs next month, HBO has released more materials for their sci-fi series, including a Westworld featurette, some TV spots, and a synopsis for the pilot that teases the future of the season one.
