Westworld Blu-ray

Posted November 22, 2012 04:28 AM by Webmaster

Warner 90th AnniversaryWarner Bros. has announced the Blu-ray release of writer/director Michael Crichton's Westworld, starring Yul Brynner, Richard Benjamin, James Brolin, Alan Oppenheimer and Dick Van Patten. The 1973 sci-fi western saunters onto Blu-ray on March 5, 2013.

Welcome to West World, Crichton's futuristic Disneyland for adults, a remote resort island where, for a hefty fee, you can indulge in your wildest fantasies in one of three convincing robot-run worlds: lusty Roman World, chivalrous Medieval World or lawless West World. It's in West World that things run amok, though, as businessmen John Blane (Brolin) and Peter Martin (Benjamin) face a murderous robot gunslinger (Brynner), among other dangers.

Warner has yet to detail the disc's technical specifications and special features.

This is one of the rare important films of the '70s that I've never seen!! I'm really tempted to blind buy it; I'm sure I'd love it It's just too bad they didn't use the original poster art for the cover...

FINALLY!!

Agree, the original poster art would have made a great cover.
The only thing I can think of with this one is the slew of soon-to-be-released Premium Collection UK SteelBooks (http://www.blu-ray.com/search/?quicksearch=1&quicksearch_country=all&quicksearch_keyword=Premium+Collection+Steelbook+žion=bluraymovies).

Hmmm, just realized that these are all from WB, wouldn't be too bad to get this one in a SteelBook

Never thought this film would hit Blu-ray. I haven't seen it entirely yet, so I think I'll pick it up.

Yul Brynner could be both his old iconic Magnificent Seven character AND a creepy artificial theme-park imitation at the same time. Unlike certain talks of remakes a while ago, they just couldn't cast anybody else.

Yul Brynner's Gunslinger = The "original" Terminator. (11 years before Schwarzenegger's The Terminator.)

Day one for me.

Nice! As a bonus feature they should give us 'Futureworld' (in 1080p of course).

Hope this is not going to be the French disc transfer - some scenes were ok, but others awful. It also has lip sych issues. The Warners logo was also on the French disc cover.........

A good film to add to one's Michael Crichton sci fi collection. A flawed and disappointing ending, but the movie in its day was thrilling. I watch it every year or so on LaserDisc, no bonus features. There is a "Beyond Westworld" promotional film featurette that you can get bootlegged. Hopefully the BD will include this. A film critic's audio commentary on this would be great, but I doubt they'll be so good to us.

One of the nerdiest moments of my entire life came when I asked a fellow geek which section of the amusement park in Westworld would he choose to visit. He just looked at me like I was growing a third eye in the middle of my forehead. I'm definitely going to pick this up on BD. And for the record, I would definitely choose the ancient Rome section.

James Brolin looks so much like Christian Bale in this film.

This movie was a huge influence on my childhood and has held up very well over the years. I loved as a kid how Yul chased Benjamin over Roman and Medieval Worlds. I still to this day think of thr tunnels under the Worlds when i go to Disney.
This movie also taught me how to defeat heat sensors!
