The latest trailer for HBO’s hotly anticipated new drama series Westworld has emerged online. The new series is very loosely based on Michael Crichton’s 1973 sci-fi thriller, but will focus on the dilemmas and dangerous outcomes of Westworld, a dreamlike theme park in which any human desire, no matter how dark or deprived, can come to fruition.
This is done through various artificial life forms. However, when the incredibly realistic A.I. begins to show signs of sentience, they soon realise that the human visitors are not quite what they seem and it is in fact the A.I. who have the real power.
The 10 part series features Anthony Hopkins, Ed Harris, Thandie Newton, Jeffrey Wright, Evan Rachel Wood, James Marsden and many more in a star studded line up. Westworld is set to premiere in the US on October 2, so expect Sky Atlantic to launch the series in or around that time for Irish and UK viewers.
