Westworld Teaser Trailer Hints At Unique Sci-Fi Western Blend

As you probably have heard, HBO has been developing a remake / expansion of Michael Crichton’s 1973 film Westworld in the form of a ten-episode series, and recently confirmed that it would be released as part of the company’s fall schedule this year. Now, they’ve released an official new Westworld teaser trailer that provides not only a much larger glimpse at the action but also further locks down the fall release date of the series in October.

For those who aren’t familiar, Westworld tells the story of a hi-tech amusement park (which in the original also included Roman World and Medieval World options alongside the Western World) filled with humanoid robots, where patrons can live out their historical fantasies. The robots, of course, are programmed not to kill, but *SPOILER* that doesn’t last very long (very similar to the dinos in Jurassic Park.) The original film featured Yul Brynner as The Gunslinger, a robot who goes rogue and begins hunting patrons of Westworld. In the Westworld teaser trailer, it appears that Ed Harris (credited as “The Man In Black”) may be taking over this role.

The Westworld teaser trailer doesn’t make mention of or appear to show anything on the Medieval and Roman Worlds, so perhaps those are being saved for future seasons of the show should the first season be successful. The show is being referred to by some as “Game of Thrones with robot cowboys,” but the teaser points at something more interesting than that. And with a cast including great actors from Ed Harris to Anthony Hopkins, Jeffrey Wright, James Marsden and more, we’ve got very high hopes for this series.

    This looks like it could be amazing, I have a vague recollection of the first film which I now will have to go find in a resale bin. Im loving this revival of Variations on Artificial intelligence becoming self aware.

      Yeah. I am STOKED for this. I remember watching the original Westworld growing up, and Yul Brynner as the Gunslinger has stuck in my mind. Definitely worth a watch.
