HBO has debuted a new promo TV spot and featurette for HBO’s highly anticipated “Westworld” series. The 30-second TV spot boasts quite a bit of new footage but plays like a routine commercial. The featurette is more a discussion of the big ideas the show brings up in terms of self-discovery, identity and behaviour.
Described as a dark odyssey about the dawn of artificial consciousness and the evolution of sin, the story is set at the intersection of the near future and the reimagined past and explores a world in which every human appetite, no matter how noble or depraved, can be indulged.
Anthony Hopkins, Ed Harris, Evan Rachel Wood, James Marsden, Thandie Newton, Jeffrey Wright, Tessa Thompson, Sidse Babett Knudsen, Rodrigo Santoro, Shannon Woodward, Ben Barnes, Simon Quarterman, Angela Sarafyan, Luke Hemsworth, Jimmi Simpson and Clifton Collins Jr. all star in the ten-episode series which premieres October 2nd.
