October 2nd is almost upon us, and with it comes the anticipated premiere of Westworld on HBO. Blending a not-too-distant future with a reimagined past, this science-fiction-meets-Western deals with all sorts of philosophical trappings—including the dawn of consciousness, the evolution of sin, artificial intelligence, free will and agency—in a world where every human desire can be fulfilled.
Based on the Michael Crichton novel and subsequent film, Westworld’s stellar cast 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.
