The audience gets a glimpse in the artificial West and all its terrifying secrets in the new teaser of the Westworld.
All the people who went to theaters in 1973 to watch a movie called the Westworld, directed by novelist Michael Crichton might be surprised to find that it is coming back. Back then the movie was really about a theme park where the two survivors get hunted down in the Westworld part of the park. There are two other worlds in the park as well. It might have been very confusing and thrilling at the same time.

However, this new HBO drama is solely based on the Westworld. The network released a teaser trailer for the upcoming series as it prepares for its fall line-up. The teaser starts with a dark room with a figure sitting in a chair. It is a woman and on a closer look we find out that it is Evan Rachel Wood, sitting lifeless. There are lights flickering in the background.
A voice asks her if she knows where she is. She replies that she is in a dream. The voice tells her that she is and her name is Dolores. The lights illuminate her face which has smeared blood on it in places. Her eyes are open and lifeless and there is a fly going over her eye as the voice asks her if she has ever questioned the nature of her reality.
In a flash, she wakes up in a bed, dressed in a white dress and looking alive and well. We see a rocky landscape and a train going on an old railroad. We see Jimmi Simpson’s William being welcomed by an android Talulah Riley character welcoming him to the Westworld. She tells him that there is no orientation as we see guns in glass cases and no guidebooks.
The screen then focuses in on a West street where everyone is dressed in the Old West attire and there are women staring at William as he walks on. Android tells him that all the hosts are there for him. Rodrigo Santoro’s Harlan and Thandie Newton’s Maeve Millay are shown engaged in a steamy scene.
Maeve tells Teddy played by James Marsden that he could be anyone he wants in this world. We see Dolores petting a horse as she sees her reflection in a window which worries her. William is told by the android that if he can’t tell if she’s real, does it matter. That’s when things start to go south as Dolores is pulled away by the Man in Black from Teddy who is lying on the ground, supposedly dead.
We then go back to a lab where all the androids are naked and life like. Anthony Hopkin’s Dr. Robert Ford is informed by his technicians that they are miles beyond a hitch. However, one android unnerves the doctor when he says that he wants to meet his maker and laughs. We then hear Dolores saying she is terrified.
There are spaces that are opening inside of her. Places she has never explored. We see the technicians going through dark rooms filled with androids. While in the park there are gunslingers and gangs chasing unknown victims. She comes to conclude that there is something wrong with the world she is in.
We see bloody bodies in the Westworld and people throwing away android bodies as Maeve collapses outside the chamber looking at the workers. And we see that the entire western land is actually a model that the technicians are operating. Pretty much like the Hunger Games models. Dolores says that these violent delights have violent ends. We see a quick montage of gun slinging, guns, chases and android throwing someone across the room before the screen turns blank. The logo of Westworld appears.
