First images from new HBO series Westworld

13 July 2015 9:12 AM, PDT | The Hollywood News | See recent The Hollywood News news »

HBO will debut a brand new series based on the classic 1973 Michael Crichton movie Westworld later this year. Lucky crowds at this weekend’s San Diego Comic Con managed to get a first look at the trailer for the new series from Jonathan Nolan, but the network failed to get that trailer online with all of the other promos at the weekend.

What we do have for you however, is a bunch of promotional images for the show for your viewing pleasure.

Westworld is based around the world of a theme park for adults where they can live out their wildest desires without consequences.

Ed Harris, Anthony Hopkins, Jeffrey Wright, James Marsden, Evan Rachel Wood, and Thandie Newton star in HBO’s Westworld, which is set to debut in the Us later this year.

Here are those pics.

HBO's 'Westworld' First Look with Anthony Hopkins and James Marsden

12 July 2015 4:50 PM, PDT | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

Fans who attended the Person of Interest panel at Comic-Con on Saturday were given a surprise treat, the first trailer for HBO's Westworld. While it may seem odd for an HBO trailer to debut during a CBS panel, Person of Interest creator Jonathan Nolan also co-created Westworld, which has been confirmed to debut sometime in 2016 on HBO. The network hasn't released the first trailer yet, but the show's page did debut four new photos, featuring series stars James Marsden, Anthony Hopkins, Thandie Newton, Ed Harris and Jeffrey Wright.

The Hollywood Reporter reveals that the Westworld trailer shown at Sdcc opens with an "ominous character voiceover" saying, "Bring her back online. Have you ever questioned the nature of your reality?" Anthony Hopkins' character is also briefly featured in scenes that, like the photos below, depict a Western setting. The series is based on the 1973 film by Michael Crichton, which is »

Fresh Images From Westworld Online

Though it didn’t have an official presence at Comic-Con (there was no panel and zero advertising), HBO’s new version of sci-fi techno fear thriller Westworld did get some stealth marketing. Executive producer Jonathan Nolan took some time during the panel for his other TV series, Person Of Interest, to show off a Con-only trailer and some new images, a selection of which you can see here.Based on the 1973 film written and directed by Michael Crichton two decades before he wrote Jurassic Park, the series will expand upon the world of a theme park for adults where they can live out their wildest desires without consequences. At least, until something happens with the artificial life forms that inhabit the place...“People who come into this place are looking for — and this is the irony of it — the authentic experience. They’re looking for not the virtual version, but the real version, »

HBO Releases New Westworld Images, Confirms 2016 Debut

12 July 2015 10:26 AM, PDT | Collider.com | See recent Collider.com news »

Ever since Game of Thrones took off and became the most popular series in the history of HBO, many wondered if the network would try to capitalize on the show’s success by expanding their fantasy/sci-fi output. HBO isn’t one to act hastily, but a potential “companion” series of sorts surfaced last year with Westworld, an adaptation of Michael Crichton’s 1973 film of the same name. Executive produced by Jonathan Nolan (The Dark Knight, Person of Interest), Lisa Joy, and J.J. Abrams, the series is described as "a dark odyssey about the dawn of artificial consciousness and the future of sin," and if it follows the central premise of the film, it revolves around androids that run amuck in a high-tech theme park. Production on the pilot began last year, with Anthony Hopkins playing the park’s creative visionary and Ed Harris taking on the role of a »

26 June 2015 12:09 PM, PDT | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

Interstellar” drew the most wins at the 41st annual Saturn Awards, taking six awards including top science fiction film. But “Guardians of the Galaxy” also had a big night, picking up awards for top comicbook film, best director and best actor for Chris Pratt.

Jonathan Nolan accepted the screenwriting honor for “Interstellar.” He quipped: ” ‘Interstellar’ is the story of a man who goes on an arduous journey, comes back 100 years later to find that nobody remembers him or gives a f–k about what he was doing. It’s a pretty good metaphor for writing a studio film.”

“Guardians” director James Gunn accepted for Pratt, then was recalled to the podium twice more in quick succession to accept his own kudos and the top honor for the film. Gunn eschewed the “cocktail attire” dress code for a black sweatshirt emblazoned with a kitten. Gunn read a message from Pratt: “James Gunn is the future. »

Why Person Of Interest is well worth your time

25 June 2015 6:56 AM, PDT | Den of Geek | See recent Den of Geek news »

After a shaky start, Person Of Interest has grown into one of the smartest, most compelling shows on TV. Here's why...

Funny things, spoilers. The very word carries a qualitative judgment – this is something that will spoil your enjoyment of the piece of art in question. And they’re ubiquitous; viewing habits are becoming ever more fractured, with some people still watching weekly live like it’s black and white times or something, some watching a season or so behind because of the Us-uk lag, some binge-watching on Netflix, some downloading scripts and directing their own versions in their mind palaces, and so on, making spoilers ever more difficult to avoid as a result. But while spoiler culture is thriving, with many forums and articles dedicated to the discussion thereof, there also seems to be a general consensus – insofar as there can be anything resembling a consensus on the Internet »

The upcoming science fiction series, based on the cult classic 1973 film of the same name written and directed by novelist Michael Crichton, is produced for HBO by Jonathan Nolan, Lisa Joy and J.J. Abrams. Westworld is a dark odyssey about the dawn of artificial consciousness and the future of sin.

HBO Plans "Jinx" Sequel, Delays "Westworld"

17 June 2015 9:19 AM, PDT | Dark Horizons | See recent Dark Horizons news »

With "Game of Thrones" wrapping up and "True Detective" about to begin, HBO Programming Chief Michael Lombardo has spoken to THR about what's ahead for the prestige cable network and has confirmed some exciting ideas.

First up, there are plans in the works for a follow-up to the Robert Durst docuseries "The Jinx" following the wild success of it this year.

Then, "The Wire" creator David Simon is developing "The Deuce" which will explore the legalization and subsequent rise of the porn industry in New York's Times Square from the early 1970s through the mid-1980s. From the roughness of midtown Manhattan to the rise of HIV, the cocaine epidemic and the rejuvenated real estate market that ended it all.

Simon will also reportedly 'take a pass' at an American adaptation of acclaimed Danish political drama series "Borgen".
