HBO has released a new – frankly somewhat disturbing – poster for Westworld, which looks like it’s riffing off Leonardo da Vinci’s Vitruvian Man, but could equally be a promo for the most nightmarish episode of Nip/Tuck ever made.
Westworld is a new, modern twist on the classic 1973 sci-fi film about a robot revolt in a futuristic theme park (it was written and directed by Michael Crichton, famous for another Jurassic theme park where everything went wrong). The 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.
The new Westworld TV series has been developed by Jonathan Nolan (Person Of Interest) and Lisa Joy. It will air in the UK on Sky Atlantic, date TBC.
