Travel into a world like no other. Once again, Michael Crichton's fantasy vacation destination Westworld has been adapted for the screen, only this time, it is arriving as a thrilling new show for HBO. Set to premiere in 2016, HBO is excited to share a first look at this promising drama series. The sneak peek aired just prior to the Season 2 finale of True Detective.
Westworld is a one-hour drama, a dark odyssey about the dawn of artificial consciousness and the future of sin. The cast includes Anthony Hopkins, Ed Harris, Evan Rachel Wood, James Marsden, Thandie Newton, Jeffrey Wright, Sidse Babett Knudsen, Rodrigo Santoro, Shannon Woodward, Ingrid Bolsø Berdal, Ben Barnes, Jimmi Simpson, Clifton Collins Jr., Simon Quarterman and Angela Sarafyan.

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.

The recasting marks a major redevelopment on the pilot, as creator Cameron Crowe is in the process of rewriting the original, and the role Gugino is filling has been entirely reconceived. Insiders say that the cabler is very excited about the high-profile project, which also has J.J. Abrams attached as an exec producer.
“Roadies” follows the lives of the road and tech crew of a rock band on tour. Gugino will play Shelli, the band’s tough and ingenious production manager who is the right hand to the group’s tour manager, played by Luke Wilson. Though she replaces the “Mad Men” alum, the recast is a reflection of a revamp of the character.

“We’re very happy to be developing this movie with Tom,” Moore told Variety. “There’s no question that Ethan Hunt deserves another film.”
The veteran executive was basking in the glow of a $121 million global opening for “Mission: Impossible — Rogue Nation” — $56 million in the U.S. and another $65 million from 40% of international markets. “The international brand is as strong as ever,” he added.
It was the first public comment by Paramount execs — who tend to take a measured approach in discussing future films. Even as “Rogue Nation” opened on Friday, the studio was insisting that its tracking showed a $40 million U.S. opening, even though the final figure turned out to be 40% higher.

Tom Cruise has been welcomed back to the nation’s multiplexes, with “Mission: Impossible — Rogue Nation” heading for a U.S. opening weekend that could top $50 million, according to early estimates Friday.
That could be four times as much as that for the rebooted “Vacation,” which is underperforming with a projected Friday-Sunday total of $12.5 million and a disappointing five-day cume ar0und $19 million.
“Mission: Impossible — Rogue Nation” is dominating Friday business, with a first-day total of at least $20 million at 3,956 locations. That figure includes $4 million from Thursday-night preview showings.
Paramount’s fifth entry in the “Mission: Impossible” franchise has launched amid a marketing campaign with Cruise — one of the best promoters in the business — hitting the circuit to discuss the film and its eye-popping stunts, such as his clinging to the side of an Airbus A400 plane during takeoff.
The studio has been cautious in its guidance for the action-adventure, »

The preview showings began at 8 p.m. at 2,764 locations. The gross is comparable to “Mad Max,” which earned $3.7 million in evening shows; “World War’s” $3.6 million; and “Dawn of the Planet of the Apes'” $4.1 million.
Paramount’s fifth “Mission: Impossible” expands to 3,956 locations on Friday. The studio’s extensive marketing campaign has centered on the 53-year-old Cruise clinging to the side of an Airbus A400 plane during takeoff.
The action adventure, which carries a hefty $150 million budget, is on pace to open to $40 million over the weekend. Some analysts think that number could rise to $50 million, given the strong critical support for the film.

“We’re starting to work on it now. We’ll probably start shooting it next summer,” he told host Jon Stewart.
The previous films in the franchise have all been separated by at least four years.
Reps for Paramount, which has released all five films in the franchise dating back to 1996, had no comment. The other films were released in 2000, 2006 and 2011.
The “Mission: Impossible” franchise has grossed a combined $2 billion at the worldwide box office. “Rogue Nation,” which carries a $150 million pricetag, will open in 40 international markets this weekend as well, including the U.K., Australia, Mexico and South Korea. »
