Westworld teaser

HBO debuted the first Westworld teaser to coincide with the season finale of True Detective. The brief tease for the series-length remake and expansion of Michael Crichton’s 1973 sci-fi film is certainly eye-catching and intriguing.

We don’t know much about the show. Westworld comes from exec producers Jonathan Nolan, Lisa Joy, and J.J. Abrams, and has been called “a dark odyssey about the dawn of artificial consciousness and the future of sin.” Combine that with the plot of the original film, which features an amusement park for adults in which synthetic humanoids help recreate a few different periods from history, but also become very dangerous when they malfunction, and we’re excited to see what the team has created.

This Westworld teaser has some gorgeous and very tantalizing shots; check it out below. Read More »

Jeffrey Wright may not be the lead of The Hunger Games: Mockingjay – Part 1, but as with so many of his other projects, that doesn’t stop him from making a huge impression. His Beetee brings a thoughtful, mature vibe to the series that helps balance out the more volatile energy of his younger co-stars. It’s no wonder this tech geek has become a fan favorite.

At a recent press day in New York, I got a few minutes to chat with Wright about the Hunger Games series. He told me all about his love for Beetee, why he preferred the Catching Fire shoot to the Mockingjay one, and his plans (or lack thereof, rather) for Bond 24.

HBO Westworld cast

Not long ago, the announcement of a TV series that adapts or jumps off from a noted film would have elicited nothing but eyerolls. After shows like Fargo and Hannibal, however, even the most skeptical onlooker must realize that it’s better to keep an open mind. And when HBO is involved? The “benefit of the doubt” requirement goes way up.

HBO is making a series adaptation of Westworld, based on the 1973 feature film by Michael Crichton. In the movie, visitors to an advanced theme park for adults found their lives threatened when the androids populating the park break down and change behavior thanks to a virus-like problem. Miranda Otto (The Lord of the Rings, Rake) has just joined the cast, along with recent signee Thandie Newton (Rogue, E.R.). Read More »

The Hunger Games Catching Fire - Jeffrey Wright as Beetee

HBO is quickly filling slots on its upcoming sci-fi show Westworld with some top end talent. The show, produced by J.J. Abrams, Jerry Weintraub, Bryan Burk and writers Jonathan Nolan and Lisa Joy, is based on the 1973 film written and directed by Michael Crichton. It’s about robots at a theme park that run amok, an idea the author evolved two decades later for Jurassic Park.

Anthony Hopkins and Evan Rachel Wood were already cast as two of the show’s leads and now six more actors have joined. Best known among them are Jeffrey Wright (The Hunger Games: Catching Fire) and Rodrigo Santoro (300) along with Shannon Woodward, Ingrid Bolso Berdal, Angela Sarafyan and Simon Quarterman.
