I genuinely do not think it’s possible for me to get any more excited for Westworld than I already am. If I were to absorb any more hype, I would essentially turn into a chihuahua on a caffeine rush. Or Nick. One of those two. But basically, I just cannot wait any longer to slap my eyeballs onto HBO’s upcoming adaptation of Michael Chrichton’s classic 1973 sci-fi western.
Even if I wasn’t as big a fan as I am of the original, just the cast alone of this new re-imagining from the team of Jonathan and Lisa Joy Nolan – helped out a bit by JJ Abrams as well – would get me foaming at the mouth. Just look at these names of award winners and fan favourites: Anthony Hopkins, Ed Harris, Evan Rachel Wood, James Marsden, Thandie Newton, Jeffrey Wright, Tessa Thompson, Jimmi Simpson, Rodrigo Santoro, Clifton Collins, Jr. and much, much more.
Still need convincing? Damn, you’re tougher than Trevor’s life love! Ok, well, then how about this incredible brand new trailer, even offered in both clean and mature versions, to drool over. Check it out below!
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‘s 10-episode first season is scheduled to premiere on HBO on October 2.
