HBO’s Westworld Questions Reality In First Full Trailer

With HBO’s “The Night Of” having come to an end, fans of the network’s style of television drama are bound to feel a void in their weekly viewing schedule. It’s looking like that void might be filled sooner rather than later, though, as HBO has just released the first, full-length trailer for its science fiction western drama, “Westworld.”

The “Westworld” series is based off a 1973 film by the same name, written and directed by Michael Crichton, in which androids in a Wild West-themed amusement park begin turning on visitors after a virus infects the park’s network. HBO’s television adaptation looks to update the film’s premise for modern times and explore the connection between artificial consciousness and sin.

The series’ eponymous theme park boasts a “no rules” policy in which all acts, be they heroic or depraved, are allowed. The park’s lifelike artificial people receive the brunt of said acts and are viewed by park operators as being fair game because they are “not people.” Naturally, a whole host of ethical questions are bound to bubble up over the course of show’s run.

“Westworld” features a star-studded cast, including Anthony Hopkins, Ed Harris and Evan Rachel Wood and comes from executive producers Jonathan Nolan (writer of “The Dark Knight” and “Interstellar”), Lisa Joy (producer and writer for “Burn Notice”) and J.J. Abrams (director of “Star Wars: The Force Awakens” and “Star Trek”).

“Westworld” debuts October 2 on HBO.
