Despite several troubling delays and reports from the set, HBO’s ambitious remake of Westworld looks to be one of the major television events of the second-half of the TV season. The latest trailer was a thrilling tease of the reconfigured take on Michael Crichton‘s sci-fi classic, which centers on a resort where the wealthy can pretend to live in the Wild West, thanks to ambitious production design and realistic androids who play the denizens of Sweetwater, the fictional Western town.
Now, we have another excellent look at what we should expect from the HBO series, with 11 new images showing a myriad of characters from the new Westworld. This is our first good look at Rodrigo Santoro and Sidse Babett Knudsen in the film, as well as Ben Barnes, Simon Quarterman, and Jimmi Simpson, whose character was the focal point of the new trailer. There’s also new looks at Anthony Hopkins, Thandie Newton, and Jeffrey Wright to get you amped up for HBO’s big event of the fall. You can take a look at the new images right below, and finally feast your eyes on Westworld starting on October 2nd.
