Michael Emerson on 'Person of Interest' Season 5, Amy Acker and The Machine

27 August 2015 6:00 AM, PDT | Indiewire Television | See recent Indiewire Television news »

"Person of Interest" is a show that I've relentlessly tried to get other people to watch: Jonathan Nolan's sci-fi drama slipped quietly onto the CBS lineup in 2011, without much fanfare despite an excellent slate of executive producers and an all-star cast. For four seasons it's hailed consistent critical acclaim, but has been largely unavailable for streaming and thus, unfortunately inaccessible.

Robots Are Runnin’ Things In First Teaser For HBO’s Westworld

10 August 2015 2:41 PM, PDT | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

A major contender on HBO’s forthcoming TV slate is the sci-fi series Westworld. A revamped small screen adaptation of Michael Crichton’s 1973 movie of the same name, it’s packing in the pedigree both in front and behind the camera. So, why then has the network kept the show on such a short marketing leash? It’s likely due to the release date being pushed back from end of 2015 to the noncommittal “sometime in 2016.”

Nevertheless, yesterday saw the first new glimpse at the movie since December – when HBO included a brief shot at the show in its “year ender” promo – as a 30-second teaser clip aired during the True Detective finale. As opposed to a full-length trailer fleshing out the narrative beats, this is a tantalizing tonal appetizer of what’s to come.

It opens as Evan Rachel Wood’s character Dolores undergoes an interrogation, followed by momentary flashes of seemingly unconnected people. »

On Sunday night, HBO concluded its run of the second, and largely dismissed, season of True Detective. The finale clocked in at a whopping 90 minutes; yet in a mere 30 seconds, the teaser for the network’s highly touted series Westworld stole much of that show’s thunder.

Way back when, Arnold Schwarzenegger was set to star in an remake of Michael Crichton's 1973 feature Westworld.

Get Ready to Have Artificial-Intelligence Nightmares With Westworld’s Teaser

9 August 2015 7:30 PM, PDT | Vulture | See recent Vulture news »

Some lucky gal named Dolores is asleep and having a nightmare for everyone to watch. The dream's called Westworld, and it'll be "a dark odyssey about the dawn of artificial consciousness and the future of sin," according to HBO. The dream will feature Anthony HopkinsEd Harris, Evan Rachel Wood, James Marsden, Thandie Newton, Jeffrey Wright, Rodrigo Santoro, Shannon Woodward, and a creepy, creepy narrator, among others; Jonathan Nolan is the executive producer, scribe, and director. (Wow, yep, this is a dream all right.) Westworld, which is being touted as an original series, was inspired by Michael Crichton's similarly titled 1973 sci-fi Western, which saw an eerie, stony-staring Yul Brynner terrorize a futuristic theme park as a robotic rogue. HBO reportedly wants this to be the network's next Game of Thrones–type phenomenon, but it looks like it's going to be more of an Ex Machina–meets–American Horror Story–type situation. »

Read More: Ranking HBO's First 'Westworld' Images From Most to Least Bonkers We have lots of questions about the upcoming HBO series "Westworld," but the biggest is probably "why on Earth did J.J. Abrams and Jonathan Nolan want to remake that cheesy Michael Crichton killer robot movie from 1973"? But as the above teaser (aired during tonight's "True Detective" season finale) showcases, the new drama seems a lot less interested in killer robot antics and a lot more excited about delving into questions about identity and reality.  Featuring a crazy good cast including Anthony Hopkins, Ed Harris, Evan Rachel Wood, James Marsden, Thandie Newton, Jeffrey Wright, Rodrigo Santoro and Shannon Woodward, "Westworld" premieres in 2016.

9 August 2015 6:23 PM, PDT | Variety - TV News | See recent Variety - TV News news »

The first teaser for HBO’s “Westworld” is a mere 30 seconds, but it manages to pack in plenty of weird happenings.

The sci-fi Western, based on Michael Crichton’s 1973 movie of the same name, aired its first footage during the season 2 finale of “True Detective.”

“Have you ever questioned the nature of your reality?” a voiceover asks Evan Rachel Wood’s character Dolores, who seems to be in a dream.

With the series described as “a dark odyssey about the dawn of artificial consciousness and the future of sin,” the film took place in a futuristic theme park in which a malfunction caused robots to wreak havoc on guests. HBO ordered “Westworld” to series last November.

Along with Wood, the cast also includes Anthony Hopkins, Ed Harris, James Marsden, Thandie Newton, Jeffrey Wright, Miranda Otto, Rodrigo Santoro, Shannon Woodward, Ingrid Bolsø Berdal, Angela Sarafyan and Simon Quarterman.
