HBO has teamed up with Jonathan Nolan (brother of Chris) and JJ Abrams for an amazing new TV show. Sci-fi thriller Westworld will finally be released this October.
“I think there may be something wrong with this world; something hiding underneath,” says Evan Rachel Wood towards the end of the trailer. “These violent delights meet violent ends.”
There’s no telling just how close the new adaptation will stick to the 1973 source material, but it looks like a few of the characters appear to be similar. Anthony Hopkins is playing Dr. Robert Ford. Evan Rachel Wood appears to be playing an android. Thandie Newton is madame Maeve Millay.
If you didn’t think an HBO could make a show bigger than Game of Thrones, well…
