'Westworld', the sci-fi western that's based on the Michael Crichton film of the same name, finally has an airing date. The series is a joint production between Sky Atlantic and HBO. In the US, it will land on the latter broadcaster on October 2nd.
There's no word on when it'll arrive on Sky Atlantic. But we'd imagine it would be around the same time.
The series was originally supposed to air in 2015, but production was put on hold for two months while the producers reviewed the scripts.
'Westworld' is described as a "dark odyssey about the dawn of artificial consciousness and the evolution of sin". It might not be a chuckle a minute, but from the trailer above, it looks pretty slick.
The 10-part series also boasts an all-star cast, including Anthony Hopkins, Ed Harris, Evan Rachael Wood, Thandie Newton, Jeffrey Wright and Tessa Thompson.
It's produced by JJ Abrams (of 'Star Trek' and 'Star Wars' fame) and Jonathan Nolan ('Memento' and 'The Dark Knight Rises').
