Westworld TV Show Trailer Released

HBO has revealed a trailer for its stylish TV series based on the 1973 sci-fi movie Westworld. The eight-part series about a futuristic theme park in which the human guests role play life in the wild west alongside androids. Then the artificial attractions start developing fatal glitches. It stars Anthony Hopkins as Dr Robert Forbes, the creative director of Westworld. And if it all sounds like Jurassic Park with mechanoids, then that’s possibly because the original film was written and directed by Jurassic Park author Michael Crichton.

This new version has been written by Jonathan Nolan (the Dark Knight movie trilogy, InceptionPerson Of Interest) and his wife Lisa Joy (Pushing DaisiesBurn Notice). It is described as, “a dark odyssey about the dawn of artificial consciousness and the future of sin.” It’s  subject in vogue at the moment with Ex Machina and Humans tackling similar themes. Maybe it’s because there are now robots that can build flat-pack furniture… that proves the superior intellect of AI, surely?
