WESTWORLD (2016) Teaser Trailer 2: Machines Stop Wanting to Entertain [HBO]


Westworld Trailer 2

Westworld Trailer 2. The second TV show teaser trailer for Westworld (2016) has been released by HBO. This TV promo aired before Season 6, Episode 9 of Game of Thrones. The first teaser trailer for Westworld presented what seemed to be a break down in Delores, an android portrayed by Evan Rachel Wood. This trailer shows that Delores is not the only android that has a malfunction.

Westworld is presented like Jurassic World in a way. The Westworld visitor is able to go where they like and indulge themselves anyway they see fit. Androids don’t feel pain. Androids can’t get pregnant. Androids can, however, display the vast array of emotions that humans can display.

There are even curious machines in Westworld, machines looking for God à la Blade Runner (then laughing hysterically). These curious machines seem to be going through an awakening, becoming conscience of themselves, their minds, and all the things that they don’t know about yet.

Delores: “I feel space is opening up inside of me. Like a building with rooms I’ve never explored.”

It is always surprising when scientists in film and on TV, that dabble in cyborgs and androids, never place into them Isaac Asimov‘s “Three Laws of Robotics”:

A robot may not injure a human being or, through inaction, allow a human being to come to harm. A robot must obey orders given it by human beings except where such orders would conflict with the First Law. A robot must protect its own existence as long as such protection does not conflict with the First or Second Law.

If those activated the moment a machine was not in the Westworld gaming grid, calamity would not ensue like at the end of this trailer. A TV series needs drama though so Asimov’s ingenious Laws are nowhere to be found.

I hope that the issue of android armies in the real world is brought up on this series. If humanity has gotten to the point where they can create machines that look just like a real human being, what is stopping nations from creating combat androids? What is stopping corporations from making home-use androids like in the TV series Humans or the short film Kara? What is stopping a corporation from making an android that looks like a famous actress, celebrity, or model to be sold to the highest bidder?

“Are you real?” “Well if you can’t tell, does it matter?”

These are intriguing questions, intriguing thoughts. I hope that Westworld tackles them.

Westworld also stars Anthony HopkinsEd Harris, James Marsden, Thandie Newton, Ingrid Bolsø Berdal, Eddie Rouse, Demetrius Grosse, Kyle Bornheimer, Currie Graham, Lena Georgas, Steven Ogg, Timothy Lee DePriest, Jeffrey Wright, Rodrigo Santoro, Shannon Woodward, Angela Sarafyan, and Simon Quarterman.

Westworld‘s plot synopsis: “The series is based on the 1973 film of the same name, and is set at a theme park run by very life-like androids. Unlike the film, which centered around human visitors being menaced by robot workers, the show will be from the workers’ perspective. The one-hour drama series…is a dark odyssey about the dawn of artificial consciousness and the evolution of sin. Set at the intersection of the near future and the reimagined past, it explores a world in which every human appetite, no matter how noble or depraved, can be indulged.”
