I really don’t need another trailer for Westworld. HBO’s big budget TV series adaptation of Michael Crichton’s classic sci-fi western already had me at it being, well, HBO’s big budget TV series adaptation of Michael Crichton’s classic sci-fi western! So no, I don’t need to see any further previews to convince me to tune in when it debuts, but I’ll be damned if this new trailer isn’t a good one!
It starts by diving right into the complex questions about self-awareness and humanity that the show’s producers have said they would be tackling, but then just escalates in the sex and violence department to incredible effect. It’s probably best to not watch this one in an open plan office, but make sure you do watch it!
The one-hour drama series Westworld is a dark odyssey about the dawn of artificial consciousness and the evolution of sin. Set at the intersection of the near future and the reimagined past, it explores a world in which every human appetite, no matter how noble or depraved, can be indulged.
Westworld stars Anthony Hopkins, Ed Harris, Evan Rachel Wood, James Marsden, Thandie Newton, Jeffrey Wright, Tessa Thompson, Sidse Babett Knudsen, Jimmi Simpson, Rodrigo Santoro, Shannon Woodward, Ingrid Bolsø Berdal, Ben Barnes, Simon Quarterman, Angela Sarafyan, Luke Hemsworth and Clifton Collins, Jr. It is scheduled to premier on HBO on October 2, 2016.
