Series taglines don’t come much more ominous than “these violent delights have violent ends” so it’s little wonder HBO and Sky Atlantic’s Westworld looks absolutely terrifying.
The spine-tingling first trailer for Jonathan Nolan, Lisa Joy and JJ Abrams new series – about the rise of Artificial Intelligence in a Wild West theme park – has landed and it’s utterly chilling and brilliant at the same time.
Anyone who has seen the original film will know that Westworld takes place in a futuristic theme park where human-like robots play cowboys.
However, just as in Channel 4’s Humans, it seems as though the robots ain’t lacking feelings after all. And as they seem to develop sentience, all hell breaks loose.
Anthony Hopkins, Thandie Newton, Evan Rachel Wood, Tessa Thompson and Ed Harris all star in what looks to be one of 2016’s most fascinating and flashy thrillers.
Watch out Game of Thrones, Westworld is coming… in October.
