      Westworld UK premiere date revealed in unique 3D-printed model

      https://corporate.sky.com/media-cent...-printed-model

      Sky Atlantic today reveals the date of the premiere of the futuristic series Westworld, using stereolithographic 3D printing technology to recreate the show’s UK air date alongside a Westworld-style ‘host’.

      Watch it emerge from the printer in this short video



      The video - a nod to the ‘host’ manufacturing line featured in the show, which creates the theme park’s artificially intelligent residents - begins the countdown to the UK premiere of Westworld on Tuesday 4 October at 9pm on Sky Atlantic and NOW TV.

      To create the video, Sky teamed up with 3D print expert Hobs Studio to use the UK’s largest stereolithographic printer. The printer uses lasers on a vat of liquid resin to link molecules together into a solid form, making up the unique shapes of the object which then rise from the liquid.

      A hedonistic theme park staffed by artificially intelligent hosts, Westworld is a place in which human guests can explore their every appetite, no matter how noble or depraved. This dark odyssey from JJ Abrams (Star Trek Beyond, Star Wars: The Force Awakens), Jonathan Nolan (Interstellar, The Dark Knight) and Lisa Joy (Pushing Daisies, Burn Notice) examines man’s primal nature and the dawn of artificial consciousness.

      Westworld stars Anthony Hopkins as the park’s founder and creative director Dr Robert Ford. Alongside Hopkins, the series stars Ed Harris (Pollock, Apollo 13) as The Man in Black, Thandie Newton (Mission: Impossible II) as madam Maeve Millay, Evan Rachel Wood (Thirteen, Mildred Pierce) as Dolores Abernathy and James Marsden (X-Men) as Teddy Flood.

      Thanks for this. This looks absolutely epic. I'm so looking forward to it.

      Sky are also showing the original 1973 film on demand as well if anyone needs a refresher.

      I just hope Ed Harris can pull this off and be as scary as Yul Brynner was in the original film.

      That 3d printing one looks like a cheap plastic 'Made in Hong Kong' plastic toy I used to get in my cereal packets from the 1960s and 70s.

      Could not find that film on demand, except if you mean on Sky Cinema.
      But its on Sky Atlantic on Tuesday, so look forward to that.
      Not seen that film for a while, but a great scifi classic.

      Hope this TV Westworld version turns out to be good.
      Watched Hooten and The Lady last night and that was just a very poor take off of Indiana and failed miserably. Very poor acting, dreary script and some awful mumbling speech. Will not bother with that again.

      The hype around this is much higher than Game of Thrones had even after 2 seasons. Hope it isn't ****e!
