New Trailer offers Glimpse Into Series Villian on HBO's upcoming "WestWorld"

HBO recently gave fans a brief glimpse into the world of Westworld. Westworld is the upcoming sci-fi series from Jonathan Nolan, Lisa Joy, and J.J. Abrams that re-envisions the classic 1973 film written and directed by Michael Crichton. The trailer also fully introduces the major players of the series, including Evan Rachel Woods' Dolores Abernathy, a young woman in the old west who appears to be reaching a startling conclusion: her entire existence is a lie.
                       
Honestly, everything in Westworld is a carefully constructed psedo-world populated by androids like Dolores, who were built only to pleasure their human masters. However, the Man in Black, as played by Ed Harris, may have something to say about that. The trailer plays up the similarities between Harris' character and the Gunslinger played by Yul Brenner in the original film while also implying that he was created by Bernard Lowe (Jeffrey Wright), who now regards the Man in Black as a mistake

Thankfully, the trailer also pulls back the covers on Anthony Hopkins' Dr. Robert Ford, the creative director of Westworld itself, who insists that it is not a theme park. Even though Ford doesn't seem to be a malevolent figure, he's clearly not a "friend" to Dolores or the other androids in Westworld. There's a rebellion brewing, and the human masters had better watch their backs! HBO's Westworld will premiere this October ! You can check out the latest trailer below but please be forewarned it is NSFW !
