If you missed the news, HBO is getting ready to launch a new series based on Michael Crichton’s Westworld. And if you don’t know Westworld, it’s basically the premise of Jurassic Park— a high tech amusement park in which the featured exhibits run amok– only with robot cowboys instead of dinosaurs. The debates over which out-of-control subject material is cooler has raged on for decades, and will continue to do so until Jurassic World 6 or whatever likely features robotic cowboy dinosaurs, forever putting the eternal argument to bed.
In the meantime, we’ve got HBO’s Westworld, and the first teaser trailer is here! It’s only 30 seconds long, but not only does it already pique my interest in this series, it packs in appearances from much of the stellar cast including Anthony Hopkins, Jeffrey Wright, Evan Rachel Wood, James Marsden, Shannon Woodward, Clifton Collins Jr, and Ed Harris (!!!).
I’m not gonna lie, I’m pretty excited about this show. How about you? Is the teaser doing anything for you?
