A new Westworld trailer makes it clear that Halloween isn’t the only reason to long for October

We’ve already talked about Westworld before, so for more details on the story and people behind it, please go check out that story here.

Westworld HBO 2016 new posterThis time around, we’d like to focus on the new Westworld trailer, which is scary and bloody and absolutely amazing! Westworld is all about artificial consciousness and intelligence, but mostly, it’s about human nature. Obviously, that means it won’t be pretty, because really, we’re a sick and twisted species in many ways.

The new Westworld trailer makes this very clear and now our longing for October isn’t just about Halloween. Just a few more weeks and everyone will get to watch the first episode of the new HBO show, which is poised to be the replacement for Game of Thrones.

The very first episode of Westworld will win you over!

As someone who’s already been very fortunate to watch the first four (yes, 4!) episodes of Westworld, I think they have a solid new hit on their hands.

From the very first episode, I saw, I knew this would be one of my new favorite shows. Or actually, one of my favorite shows ever! That’s why I’m also very happy to report that the people behind Westworld are hoping to have at least 5 seasons to tell the story.

Right now, I almost think everyone should feel a little sorry for me, because I have to wait that much longer for a new episode. Yeah, okay, not really – I do realize I’m the lucky one! Though you better believe I will watch the first four again as they air. And yes, we will keep you updated on any news regarding the new HBO show.

There’s no doubt that we will all know this show by next year’s award season. Not only because it’s a beautifully made and well-crafted production, but because there are so many truly powerful and awesome female characters in Westworld that you’ll be blown away by. Actually, the great female characters are quickly becoming a trademark for creators / writers Jonathan Nolan (Person of Interest) and Lisa Joy along with executive producer J.J. Abrams.

For me, Evan Rachel Wood, Thandie Newton and our very own Danish diva, Sidse Babett Knudsen are all unbelievably amazing in Westworld, and have become instant favorites of mine.


And of course, Ed Harris, Anthony Hopkins, James Marsden and Jeffrey Wright (all part of the show from episode one) are phenomenal as well. You’ll all see soon enough… For now, enjoy this new Westworld trailer.

Westworld season 1 will consist of 10 episodes and airs on HBO, starting Sunday, October 2, 2016.

I write reviews and recaps on Heaven of Horror. And yes, it does happen that I find myself screaming, when watching a good horror movie. I love psychological horror, survival horror and kick-ass women. Also, I have a huge soft spot for a good horror-comedy. Oh yeah, and I absolutely HATE when animals are harmed in movies, so I will immediately think less of any movie, where animals are harmed for entertainment (even if the animals are just really good actors). Fortunately, horror doesn't use this nearly as much as comedy. And people assume horror lovers are the messed up ones. Go figure!
