‘Westworld’ Trailer: Where Dreams Become Bloody Reality
Wednesday, September 14th, 2016 at 10:00 am
There are only a few short weeks left until HBO debuts the highly anticipated Westworld. With Game of Thrones now coming to an end, and with shorter seasons, the network is looking to fill that void with another exciting new genre series. And based on the previoustrailers, it looks like Westworld may be just that.
But before those doors open, we are getting yet another trailer that will do more than just whet our appetite. Check out the new trailer below.
There is a polarizing effect that you may have noticed throughout these trailers, with one world where guest lose their inhibitions and become driven by avarice, sex, and wrath. But on the flip side, where so few have seen, there is a world behind-the-scenes, where robots who serve these guests and their vices become victims to destruction. Soon enough, these robots become sentient, and go against their programming to kill these guests. The trailer shows that dichotomy between the two worlds where soon enough everything the guests know and robots are programmed to know will be tested.
Here’s the official plot synopsis:
