WATCH: Sky reveals first trailer for sex & violence filled, J.J. Abrams produced Westworld
HBO’s new adaptation of the 1973 film Westworld first got our attention last October, when a sexually explicit actors’ contract required the show’s extras’ consent to “appear fully nude; wear a pubic hair patch; perform genital-to-genital touching; have your genitals painted; simulate oral sex with hand-to-genital touching; contort to form a table-like shape while being fully nude; pose on all fours while others who are fully nude ride on your back” … the list continues.
Now, Westworld‘s UK broadcaster Sky Atlantic has unveiled the first trailer for the sci fi series, which claims to be “a dark odyssey about the dawn of artificial consciousness and the future of sin”.
Basically imagine a futuristic Western with lots of sex and violence, with a star-studded cast including Evan Rachel Wood, James Marsden, Thandie Newton, and Sir Anthony Hopkins. Oh, and did we mention it’s been executive produced by J.J. Abrams and Jonathan Nolan (Interstellar, The Dark Knight Rises)?
Watch the trailer now, and get excited for when the show premieres this October on Sky Atlantic.
