A Mature Trailer Explores The Duality That Many Westworld Characters Experience.

Late Sunday night, HBO released a regular and a mature trailer of the upcoming sci-fi series Westworld. Both videos include some intense new footage and what some are calling the next best show on HBO. “Bring yourself back online” states Bernard Lowe, who is played by Jeffrey Wright speaking to Dolores. The trailer is squarely footed around Dolores Abernathy, who is richly played by Evan Rachel Wood. Wood is a naive young host, who’s apparently the park’s oldest resident, having been reanimated after an untold number of deaths that she has been programmed to forget.

“I designed every part of this place; not the theme park, but an entire world” Dr. Robert Ford creepily states. The dialog suggests there is much more to Westworld than meets the eye. HBO may be building a franchise off the premise that A.I. Beings can be utilized under any number of settings, not just the western frontier. At any rate, the video visualizes a robotic conflict between the park hosts and their human handlers. Based off the Michael Crichton’s 1973 sci-fi thriller, but built for today’s audience from executive producers Jonathan Nolan (Person of Interest) and Lisa Joy (Pushing Daisies). The sci-fi drama, long in the making, tackles the threat of out of control artificial intelligence.
