This October HBO will kick off the new ten episode season of the one-hour series Westworld starring Anthony Hopkins, Ed Harris, Evan Rachel Wood, James Marsden, Thandie Newton and Jeffrey Wright.
The upcoming science fictionseries was created by Jonathan Nolan and Lisa Joy for HBO, based on the 1973 film of the same name, which was written and directed by American novelist Michael Crichton. Much like the original motion picture, the TV series also tells the story of a futuristic theme park called Westworld.
WESTWORLD is a dark odyssey about the dawn of artificial consciousness and the evolution of sin, exploring a world in which every human appetite, no matter how noble or depraved, can be indulged.
Ahead of its premiere, HBO has released a new batch of images from the series featuring key characters such as Dr. Robert Ford (Hopkins), the brilliant, taciturn and complicated creative, chief programmer and founder of Westworld. And Teddy Flood (James Marsden), a new arrival to a small frontier town, quickly proves both his charm and talent with a revolver.
The show begins on Sunday, Oct. 2nd at 9:00 p.m. (ET/PT), exclusively on HBO.
