Very excited for this
Big fan of the original work. Yul Breenyr was perfect in it.
Didn't Crighton write the one in the 70s?
Christopher Nolans brother that helps him with his films will be the director. so its safe to assume it will be the bees knees
thats pretty awesome
gets me even more excited for this
HBO’s ‘Westworld’ Shuts Down Production, Still Targeting 2016 Premiere (EXCLUSIVE)
Production has been temporarily shut down on HBO’s highly anticipated drama “Westworld,” sources tell Variety.
The ambitious project, which doesn’t have an official premiere date, was shuttered for two months so executive producers Jonathan Nolan and Lisa Joy can catch up on the final four scripts. Production, which was originally scheduled to wrap in November, is now set to resume in March.
“As we head into the final phase of production on ‘Westworld,’ we’ve made the decision to take a brief hiatus in order to get ahead of the writing,” said HBO in a statement.
Sources tell Variety the shutdown is temporary and that HBO is confident that the series will make its targeted premiere date. HBO has yet to specify a date beyond saying it will air in 2016.
The one-hour drama, inspired by the 1973 film starring Yul Brynner, is described as “a dark odyssey about the dawn of artificial consciousness and the future of sin.” The series stars Anthony Hopkins, Ed Harris, Evan Rachel Wood, James Marsden and Thandie Newton.

HBO says fall premieres for drama “Westworld” and comedies “Divorce,” “Insecure” and “High Maintenance.” No specific dates yet.
I was hoping this show wasn't a casualty of vinyl's failures
I couldn't tell what was really going on in that trailer, but they definitely have my attention.
yeah i am all up in this shit
Same reaction when I saw the trailer last night.
The Matrix meets The Outlaw Josey Wales?
Plus Vanilla Sky
Very excited for this. Somehow had missed that new trailer.
@TVGuide: #Westworld premieres Sunday October 2 at 9pm. #TCA16
Extremely violent and lots of nudity.
Love elements of the matrix and inception
Will prob watch the original flick a few times leading up.
Need to read the book.
Really looking forward to it- the teasers/trailers look amazing
This going to be my favorite show. I can already feel it
Getting very excited for this.
Feels like Jurassic Park + The Matrix.
Apparently it was a good, groundbreaking movie back in the 70s. Might give it a watch this weekend.
I like it. Yul Brynner is fantastic in it.
Watching this thread so I remember to watch the show when it starts up
Good article on the production shutdown earlier this year.
Nolan crushed it with Person of Interest. Really excited for this.
Keep seeing the trailer on HBO GO. Looks amazing.
Reviews on the first 4 episodes
IGN: "HBO's Westworld makes a strong first impression with its excellent premiere, as a theme park provides the setting for a fascinating exploration of the human -- and not so human -- psyche." [9/10]
TV Fanatic: "Westworld is a wide, sweeping drama re-introducing us to the world Michael Crichton brought to life once before for the big screen in 1973. It's a compelling and thrilling look at what it means to be human in this technologically driven world. The stories revolve around the Gods, or park creators and engineers, the park employees, the hosts (AI) and the guests, called newcomers by the AI. " [5/5]
Nerdist: "We’re overdue for a series that explores the idea of reality and what constitutes something as “real” in this way: the labyrinthine nature of desire and excess and creation and morality, when thrown into the frontier (both literally and metaphorically) challenges the audience to see themselves—and the human race—for what we maybe are or could be. " [5/5]
The Guardian: "But for those of us who just like story – lots and lots of story! – Westworld will hit the spot as hard as GoT ever did. Gosh, there’s a lot going on. There’s the real world full of robot-wranglers, some of whom are jostling for position inside whatever just-possibly-malevolent company owns the park, others of whom are busy tinkering with their charges’ software and trying to decide whether to make the skinjobs more realistic or quit while they’re ahead."
Collider: "Like Game of Thrones, Westworld is a sprawling story, but it’s never as disparate as the world of Westeros and what lies beyond the Narrow Sea. What matters here is the notion that everything is contained, intimate, and carefully crafted, and fans of Crichton will immediately feel the familiarity with his most famous stories’ themes: where what we overly-confident Homo sapiens create and try and control quickly spirals out beyond our abilities." [4/5 - Very Good]
like that it's getting good reviews because I want it to be badass. don't like when they compare it to another show that's completely different. what other similarities does it have to GoT besides being on HBO?
"Sprawling". That's the only way it was compared. Odd to have a hangup because of that line. People compared Thrones to The Wire early because of that very thing.
just think, especially the first one, could do without the mention is all
not gonna affect my viewing pleasure. same thing was said after the pilot of The Night Of w/ True Detective season 1
Any famous actors going to show up as guests at the theme park this year?
HBO needs this to be good so badly
They've got nothing left when GoT wraps up
And GoT was the first good thing they've had since Sopranos/Wire
Rome was pretty critically acclaimed. Just too expensive to produce.
So jacked for this!
Boardwalk Empire was great. Regardless of critical acclaim, True Blood was a huge hit. And of course there's True Detective season 1.
But they definitely need this to be good and popular.
Looking forward to tonight. Anyone watch the movie recently?
never seen the movie but excited for this show
Let's do this
Tits from the get go
I'd probably just fuck a bunch of sexy whore robots if I went there
What am I watching?
Moab, Utah is beautiful though
