Things get real in this full trailer for HBO's Westworld

Westworld Anthony Hopkins Westworld Evan Rachel Wood

HBO's Westworld may have had a long, arduous journey to actually get to us, but a full trailer has dropped that might just show that the wait will be worth it. Although a lot of people have questioned why the series, based on the popular Michael Crichton film, should even exist, the trailer displays a couple images that are stunning enough to justify it on their own. Only time will tell how the story translates to an episodic arc, but the performers are good, it looks slick, and it seems different enough that it's telling it's own story, which is good enough for me. Check it out below!

In the original 1973 film: 

A lawyer and businessman are among the visitors to Westworld, a futuristic theme park where the gunhands and dance hall girls are all robots programmed to serve the guests' violent and lustful fantasies - until something goes wrong with their circuitry.

No longer the guests' obliging victim, a black-clad humanoid gunslinger turns on the two heroes. The ultimate amusement turns deadly serious as the men are pursued to a deadly climax by an implacable, unstoppable foe.

This new take on the material is:

described as 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.

Anthony Hopkins, Ed Harris, Evan Rachel Wood, James Marsden, Thandie Newton, Jeffrey Wright, Tessa Thompson, Sidse Babett Knudsen, Jimmi Simpson, Rodrigo Santoro, Shannon Woodward, Ingrid Bolsø Berdal, Ben Barnes, Simon Quarterman, Angela Sarafyan, Luke Hemsworth, and Clifton Collins Jr. star.

You can visit Westworld on HBO on Sunday, October 2nd at 9PM.
