Executive produced by JJ Abrams, based on the 1973 movie of the same name and starring Anthony Hopkins, Thandie Newton and Ed Harris to name a few – Westworld looks awesome!
Many won’t remember the original movie of 1973 that starred Yul Brynner as a rogue android hell bent on killing. It was written and directed by Michael Crichton and despite being released 4 years before I was born I’ve seen it multiple times.
Based on the plot of the film HBO’s new ten part series introduces Westworld, a futuristic adult-themed amusement park set in the Old West where any indulgence, no matter how depraved can be played out. Inhabited by androids with artificial intelligence almost indistinguishable from humans. The series will explore a dark look at the birth of AI consciousness with gruesome consequences.
Westworld will debut from HBO in October this year and may just help to fill the void between seasons of Game of Thrones.
