HBO released two new videos of their upcoming new sci-fi series based on the 1973 Michael Crichton film, Westworld.
The first video (posted below) is a featurette offering a bunch of new footage as well as insight from major players on and off camera. The second focuses on Thandie Newton’s and Evan Rachel Wood’s characters. Both are created for the show’s simulated environment, and neither are aware that they’re not human.
[Westworld] offers 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.
The cast also includes Anthony Hopkins, Ed Harris, James Marsden, 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.
Westworld is set to air for 10 episodes this fall and will premiere on Sunday, October 2, 2016 at 9 PM ET on HBO. Also be sure to check back here for weekly recap and reviews from yours truly!
