This follow-up to the successful 1973 thriller Westworld stars Peter Fonda and Blythe Danner as Chuck Browning and Tracy Ballard, investigative reporters. The team has been dispatched to the expensive theme park Westworld on the remote island of Delos, to find out what caused the park's robots to go berserk and begin killing the cash customers. They discover that Duffy (Arthur Hill), creator of Westworld, has retooled his park into Futureworld, a supposedly "fail safe" recreational mecca. In truth, he is scheming to replace all of the world leaders with robot clones, the better to take over the globe. Yul Brynner, the steely-eyed cowboy android from Westworld, makes a brief return appearance

Futureworld is a 1976 sequel to the 1973 science fiction film Westworld. It was written by George Schenk and Mayo Simon, and directed by Richard T. Heffron. The cast included Peter Fonda, Blythe Danner, and Arthur Hill. There is also a cameo appearance by Yul Brynner in a dream sequence. Other than Brynner, none of the cast members from the original film appear, and original writer-director Michael Crichton was not involved.
The film attempted to take the plot in a different direction from Westworld, but it was not generally well received by the critics. Futureworld was deemed as lacking in action and the acting was not engaging. It was made by AIP (its predecessor was made by Metro-Goldwyn-Mayer, which later bought AIP's successors Orion Pictures).
Afterward, there was a short-lived television series called Beyond Westworld.
