While fans get ready for the October 2 premiere of Westworld on HBO, a new viral site has been discovered, which includes a brand new trailer that delves into dreams. The footage explores the notion that these robots at the Westworld resort are capable of dreaming. We'll find out for sure when this highly-anticipated series debuts Sunday, October 2 on HBO.
The network recently debuted the website DiscoverWestworld.com, where fans can learn more about the resort and even "book" your stay. In the top right hand corner of the site, there is an employee access login, and if you type "violentdelights," you'll get access to this section of the site. The employees section features a number of "Flagged Comms," one of which is a link marked "Dreams," which takes you to this trailer. We're not sure how much more footage will be released between now and the series premiere, so stay tuned.
This new series is based on the 1973 movie written and directed by famed author Michael Crichton. It is a dark odyssey about the dawn of artificial consciousness and the evolution of sin. It explores a world in which every human appetite, no matter how noble or depraved, can be indulged. These appetites can be indulged at a massive resort, which features recreations of different time periods where patrons can experience their wildest fantasies with life-like robots.
Westworld features a stellar ensemble cast that includes Anthony Hopkins, Ed Harris, Evan Rachel Wood, James Marsden, Thandie Newton, Jeffrey Wright, Tessa Thompson, Sidse Babett Knudsen, Jimmi Simpson, Rodrigo Santoro, Shannon Woodward, Ingrid Bolsø Berdal, Ben Barnes, Simon Quarterman, Angela Sarafyan, Luke Hemsworth and Clifton Collins Jr. The show was first given a pilot order back in 2013, and although it has faced numerous delays, they could be beneficial. We reported last week that the lengthy delays enabled the creators to map out the next five years of the show and more.
Westworld has also seen its fair share of controversy over the years. A report from last year revealed that Westworld extras were required to perform explicit sex acts. We'll have to wait and see if the show will be as controversial as another HBO hit show, Game of Thrones, which often features graphic sex, rape, incest and other controversial acts. Take a look at the new trailer for Westworld to get ready for the October 2 premiere.
