Westworld Season Finale Clip

The season finale of Westworld is just a couple days away, and soon we’ll get to see how many of the ever-growing list of theories about the show actually turn out to be true. The most recent episode of Westworld already confirmed one major theory that has been kicking around since the season premiere, and the finale will likely confirm or debunk the popular but controversial theory that Jimmi Simpson‘s character William is actually a younger version of Ed Harris‘ character The Man in Black.

While we wait for the 90-minute season season finale to hit HBO on Sunday, series executive producer J.J. Abrams stopped by The Tonight Show with Jimmy Fallon last night to tease what he calls a “crazy” conclusion to the first season, and he even brought a clip from the finale to hold us over.

After the second episode of Westworld aired, a fan theory popped up that was potentially mindblowing. The subsequent episodes have completely disproved the theory (unless they haven’t, see here and here). And now showrunner Jonathan Nolan and actor Jimmi Simpson are finally commenting on the most popular Westworld theory. Hit the jump to learn what they said.

Like the robots at the center of the plot, Westworld constantly asks the viewer to examine the nature of the show’s reality. Usually, these questions stem from plot threads that demand further exploration, like what actually happened to Arnold, the mysterious co-founder of Westworld whose existence has been scrubbed from the park’s official history. Other questions deal with the logistics of the park itself, specifically where this massive place could possibly be located (especially since it’s difficult to communicate with the outside world and the staff is required to live on site and rotate out every few months).

Those discussions have emerged from dialogue and plot threads on the show, with the series inviting analysis because of something a character says or, more often, something they do not say. One of the strangest conversations surrounding Westworld feels like a shot in the dark, albeit a fascinating shot in the dark that has just enough evidence to make sense. And the latest episode, “The Stray,” either proves it to be true or…proves it to be untrue.

Westworld images

Jonathan Nolan arrived at Comic Con for his Person of Interest panel, but he brought a surprise: a trailer for his HBO series Westworld. The show takes its name and inspiration from a 1973 film by Michael Crichton, in which the robot “attractions” at a futuristic amusement park begin to run wild. The new show keeps the same basic conceit, but takes a more modern turn. HBO described it early on as “a dark odyssey about the dawn of artificial consciousness and the future of sin.”

While we don’t have that Westworld trailer to share just yet, we do have a handful of new Westworld images such as the one above, showing star Anthony Hopkins. More of the cast awaits below. Read More »

Emanuel and Truth About Fishes

When this film premiered at Sundance this year, it was called Emanuel and the Truth About Fishes, and we even saw a trailer under that title. For regular release, however, the title has been streamlined a bit, to the more conventional The Truth About Emanuel. Jessica Biel stars as a woman whose young neighbor neighbor thinks Biel looks a lot like her dead mother. That leads to a strange friendship, and to tension as long-buried secrets are revealed.

Emanuel and Truth About Fishes

Jessica Biel has done more than her fair share of studio romcoms and actioners, but her most interesting role in recent memory could be in the Sundance indie Emanuel and the Truth About Fishes.

Directed by Francesca Gregorini, the psychological thriller stars Kaya Scodelario as a troubled teen girl who begins babysitting for her new neighbor Linda (Biel). In time, Emanuel becomes ever more obsessed with Linda, in whom she sees a striking resemblance to her dead mother. That logline doesn’t sound terribly unique, I know, but the film has drawn some attention for its surprising twists and turns. Watch the trailer after the jump.
