Westworld is the most ambitious projects to hit the television since Game Of Thrones.
The above would have been an overstatement if it wasn’t true. But it is.
Inspired by Michael Crichton’s (the author of Jurassic Park) 1973 film of the same name, the series is described as “a dark odyssey about the dawn of artificial consciousness and the evolution of sin.” The show takes place in a massive real-world “theme park” run by Anthony Hopkins, which allows humans to enter the world of the Wild West and interact with its humanoid inhabitants. The idea is that humans can partake in sinful pleasures and even murder these humanoids, because they’re not real, but when they start to gain a consciousness about their true nature and their true purpose, big trouble ensues.
The show has massive talent with J.J. Abrams (director of Star Wars: The Force Awakens) set as Executive Producer, Jonathan Nolan (writer of The Dark Knight Trilogy and Interstellar) and his wife Lisa Joy set as showrunners and a massive cast that includes Sir Anthony Hopkins, Evan Rachel Wood (Across The Universe), Thandie Newton (Mission Impossible 2), Ed Harris (The Rock), James Marsden (X-Men), among others.
We just can’t wait for this one. Check out the trailer below!
