HBO’s ambitious new Westworld series finally arrives this weekend, and the network has dropped several new pics from the TV revival.
The series is scoring some good-but-not-great reviews ahead of the Sunday, Oct. 2, debut. Though the consensus seems to be there are a few potential narrative issues in there, the pilot is positively gorgeous, and the pics back that up. The shots show off much of the cast, as well as some stunning scenes from the glossy high-tech world outside, and the wild, wild west inside the “theme park.”
Here’s the film’s synopsis:
As another day of fantasy plays out in Westworld – a vast, remote park where guests pay top dollar to share wild-west adventures with android “hosts” – top programmer Bernard Lowe (Jeffrey Wright) alerts park founder Dr. Robert Ford (Anthony Hopkins) about incidents of aberrant behavior cropping up in some recently re-coded hosts. Meanwhile, in the Westworld town of Sweetwater, a rancher’s daughter named Dolores (Evan Rachel Wood) encounters a gunslinger named Teddy (James Marsden) in the street – but their predictable narrative is upended by the appearance of a ruthless Man in Black (Ed Harris) and, later, by a supporting host’s unscripted encounter with an artifact of the outside world.
