First Look At HBO’s WESTWORLD Series

HBO took the hype for last night’s True Detective season finale as an opportunity to promote next year’s adaptation of Michael Crichton’s 1973 film (and dry-run for Jurassic Park) Westworld. The excellent though very brief teaser gives an idea of what to expect from the series.

The show comes from Jonathan Nolan (Christopher’s brother/favorite writing partner) and Lisa Joy (Pushing Daisies, Burn Notice) and features one hell of a cast.¬†Anthony Hopkins, Miranda Otto, James Marsden, Thandie Newton, Jeffrey Wright, Rodrigo Santoro, and¬†Ed Harris are all on board

If you’ve never seen the original, you really should. It concerns a theme park where things go wrong and the science project attractions (in this case robot cowboys) start killing guests. Like I said, dry-run for Jurassic Park.

Also, how great was the movie’s trailer?
