With just over a month to go until the release of HBO's highly anticipated new science-fiction western Westworld, a new trailer has dropped online showcasing more of kickass looking series! Produced by Jonathan Nolan, Lisa Joy, and J.J. Abrams, the show is described as "a dark odyssey about the dawn of a artificial consciousness and the evolution of sin." In case you still haven't figured it out, the entire series takes place in a real-world "theme park" set in a fake wild west scenario, which appears to be run by some possible "evil doers".
The show looks absolutely incredible from a visual stand-point and the story looks thrilling as well. Plus the cast alone is worth checking this one out next month. The series stars Ed Harris, James Marsden, Thandie Newton, Jeffrey Wright, Tessa Thompson, Sidse Babett Knudsen, Jimmi Simpson, Rodrigo Santoro, Shannon Woodward, Ingrid Bolso Berdal, Ben Barnes, Simon Quaterman, Angela Sarafyan, Luke Hemsworth, and Clifton Collins Jr.
