HBO capitalized on the huge audience tuning in for the Battle of the Bastards on season six of Game of Thrones to show off a new teaser trailer for the upcoming sci-fi series Westworld. Based on Michael Crichton’s 1973 film, the one-hour series stars Anthony Hopkins, Ed Harris, Evan Rachel Wood, James Marsden, Thandie Newton, Jeffrey Wright, Tessa Thompson, Sidse Babett Knudsen, Jimmi Simpson, Rodrigo Santoro, Shannon Woodward, Ingrid Bolsø Berdal, Ben Barnes, Simon Quarterman, Angela Sarafyan, Luke Hemsworth, and Clifton Collins, Jr. The series, which experienced lengthy production delays, will finally debut this fall.
The Plot: The drama series Westworld (ten episodes) is a dark odyssey about the dawn of artificial consciousness and the evolution of sin. Set at the intersection of the near future and the reimagined past, it explores a world in which every human appetite, no matter how noble or depraved, can be indulged.
