The 1973 cult hit WESTWORLD, based on Michael Crichton’s novel, centers around an immersive amusement park where customers can play at being gunslingers among lifelike androids.

The new WESTWORLD still takes place in a very realistic recreated Old West, where profoundly humanlike androids do whatever the guests want. There are indeed glitches. But this WESTWORLD, instead of jumping into the “technology gone wrong, must escape” scenario, instead asks what all of the […]Read On »

Starting his career as an innovator in England’s electronica world, Jackman’s equally impressive string arrangements for album producer Trevor Horn drew the attention of Hans Zimmer, a composer with the Magneto-like powers of irresistibly pulling in promising talent to his lair at Remote Control. It wasn’t long […]Read On »
