Westworld TV Spot & Featurette

A Westworld (2016) TV show commercial and TV show featurette have been released by HBO. The featurette is illuminating with regard to what the state of humanity is in the Westworld TV series. The viewer sees Dr. Robert Ford (Anthony Hopkins) talking to people before they enter Westworld. From the featurette via Westworld’s creators/executive producers Jonathan Nolan and Lisa Joy and executive producer J.J. Abrams, the viewer learns that Westworld is not just about what happens in the artificial western society. It is also about what people bring with them, their personal baggage, what has been kept hidden, that Westworld exposes.

From the footage in the featurette (entitled ‘Classic Western Meets Science Fiction Film | Invitation to the Set – Westworld’) and the TV spot (entitled ‘An Entire World’), it looks like Dolores Abernathy (Evan Rachel Wood) is not the only Host that is becoming aware of the cage she (or rather it) exists in. The Man in Black (Ed Harris) seems like he has been aware for some time.

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.”

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

    This looks truly amazing, I especially love the common allusion to Baudrillard. It’s fascinating that they keep stating the theme of microcosm as opposed to simulations vs. reality. I am very excited to see this considering those in front of and behind the camera. Also great to see J. J. Abrams in his (first?) premium cable show. Excited for October, thanks for sharing!

  • J.J. Abrams produced Alias on ABC about ten years ago. The show made Jennifer Garner a star.

    I think microcosm is being emphasized because people are bringing with them into Westworld their section of society. They are thus creating and experiencing something new. Westworld adjusts to what they introduce or want (speculation at this point). The simulation is just the template. The visitors write on it.
