Last night to coincide with the season finale of The Night Of, HBO released the latest trailer for the sci-fi drama Westworld from executive producers J.J. Abrams and showrunners Jonathan Nolan and Lisa Joy. Based on the 1973 science fiction western-thriller film written and directed by novelist Michael Crichton, the series is set in the fictional world of Westworld. In Westworld, guests pay to become gunslingers and indulge themselves in all sorts of vices with androids, who rebel against their programming after they become self-aware and realize how they’re being used.
Last summer we got our first peek at Westworld, the new series HBO is hoping will become their next big thing, in the form of a quick 30-second teaser filled with a bunch of intriguing and sometimes unsettling imagery.
Now HBO has released the first real trailer for the show. It’s also a teaser, but runs about a minute and a half and shows much more of this oh so very strange world.

Ocean’s 11 films are pretty much male dominated, with George Clooney, Brad Pitt, Matt Damon, and the rest of the crew pulling off some sort of elaborate heist to steal millions from casinos, save themselves from jail time, or get revenge on casino owners who hurt one of their own. Sure there were some females in the film franchise, but they didn’t really get into the art of the heist. All three movies were directed by Steven Soderbergh, and for the most part, all of them were pretty entertaining to watch. But it was been eight years since the release of Ocean’s 13, and it looks like there are some who believe that a film like this could work again, but this time it will be Sandra Bullock who will lead a team of women to pull of an insane heist. More on the story below.
HBO has released the first video preview of their upcoming series Westworld, which is describes as a “dark odyssey about the dawn of artificial consciousness and the future of sin.” It’s only 30 seconds long, but has plenty of quick peeks at footage that will surely excite many fans of HBO’s programming.
The series is inspired by the 1973 movie of the same name, which was directed by Jurassic Park author Michael Crichton and starred Yul Brynner, and was set in a theme park filled with robots recreating three different historical periods: the old west, medieval times, and Roman times. When a power surge in the park causes a malfunction, robots begin killing people and two guests find themselves being chased by an android cowboy.
