BREAKING: 'Winter is coming...' so isn't WESTWORLD!
HBO's provocative, long awaited SciFi Western airs this October. The serial's producers quietly posted an updated trailer on youtube two days ago:
Speculation about Westworld had been growing.
Professor Z, Newsrip's resident film expert, has been on this for awhile, along with his class of energetic Oliver Stone wannabees...
"For your homework you were asked to imagine scenes from HBO's upcoming TV series, Westworld. HBO describes Westworld as "a dark odyssey about the dawn of artificial consciousness and the future of sin." It began filming early in 2015. Its directed by Michael Crichton, produced by Jonathan Nolan and Lisa Joy, and stars Evelyn Rachel Wood, Anthony Hopkins, and Ed Harris.
What follows is an imaginary scene Jarrod dreamed up:
"I thought in the Rodeo Suite a girl can get anything she wants! YOU'RE the Texas Marshal, Westworld's most popular robot; don't untie me, tie me better!"
000110 IF 5(x2y2 squared) THEN(y1) 011110?? ...
"Before we discuss Jarrod's imaginative scenario I'm going to roll the Westworld teaser, which has been out since Spring 2015. Its very short. As you watch, consider how it compares to the 1973 Westworld movie starring Yul Brynner... ...and how Anthony Hopkins' role compares to others he's played.
Here's the clip."
"Back in January HBO stopped filming Westworld to make script adjustments, announcing that filming would resume in March. Where HBO take's the original story we can only imagine. Lisa, whom you all know, thinks we could see something like this:..."
"New guests, Jenny! Do that thing with your finger, okay?..."
"... Very nice."
"In the old Westworld, lifelike robots go rogue due to a software virus. In the upcoming version they go rogue because their artificial intelligence is so advanced. They begin to experience emotions; dreams. Even love."
"I'm in a snow storm at the farm I was sent to after my Mom left. I was so unhappy there that they gave me a horse to care for. One night she broke loose from her stall and I went looking for her.." "What do you see?"
"Its windy. I'm cold and very... lost. A song my Mom and Dad sang back when they performed together is stuck in my head. My Dad's voice, which was always strong and smooth, was different after she left..."
"Thank you, Delores."
The next day:
Lately I've noticed things I never have before. About us. About this town. I'm leaving. Tomorrow night. You could come..."
Two other films in 2015 that dealt with artificial intelligence were TV's British-made Humans(TV:AMC), and exMachina. Humans started well, but its story line in the final episodes got lost. exMachina, a feature length film, won critical praise. Westworld will be aired sometime in 2016. With the recent delay, we're guessing late Spring or early Fall."
The early years.

"Back home now in a fresh, dry diaper, with a delish bottle and a talking teddy bear thingy (sigh.) Life is good! Love you!"
