Sci-Fi classic FUTUREWORLD arrives on Blu-ray this March 26 from Shout! Factory

Great news sci-fi fans, this just in from Shout! Factory:


Do you remember that disaster at Delos a few years ago when the “Westworld” robots went out of control and killed a few guests? Well, the entire resort has now been rebuilt and redesigned to be completely fail-safe.

To combat the lingering adverse publicity, Duffy, the Delos representative, has offered the IMC Communication Network exclusive rights to the “new” Delos story. Tracy Ballard (Blythe Danner), the network’s top commentator, has been assigned the story with Chuck Browning (Peter Fonda), the newspaper reporter who broke the original “Westworld” disaster story. But as Tracy and Chuck’s private tour starts, they get the feeling the entire resort might not be as safe as Delos thinks…

    I have never seen this sequel; interesting how the plot points line up with a certain 90’s blockbuster -“Mr. Duffy, after careful consideration, I’ve decided not to endorse your resort”

    So face-droppingly glad this movie is *finally* coming to properly digitized format!

    Indeed, not up to the original’s top-quality, but a half-remembered fever dream of mine for the longest time, because of its rarity on VHS.

    Yeah, not an enjoyable double-bill, because Westworld is in a league of its own, in terms of adventure, sci-fi, humor, suspense and robot rattlesnakes.
    But taken in a TV-movie kinda way, it offers a fun ride for newcomers, filled with ideas rather than execution.

    I could imagine this as a two-part Knight Rider episode. Or Mrs Columbo (or not).
    Yeah, definitely set your expectations low, and you’ll have a fun time in Futureworld.

    I commend Shout! Factory and praise their geek values in digging up this classic.
    Despite how I categorize this movie, it’s a must-see for fans of 70s sci-fi, fans of Westworld, fans of Fembots and fans of trippy visions of arcades of the future.
