New ‘Westworld’ spot teases an A.I.-led revolution

Evan Rachel Wood and Thandie Newton's Westworld characters Dolores and Maeve are the centerpiece of a new teaser for the hugely-hyped new HBO series, which has received scorchingly-good reviews in advance of its Oct. 2 premiere. In the clip, we watch as the artificially-intelligent residents of the title town/theme park begin to realize that their lives have been “elaborately constructed” by their human creators, an awakening that will inevitably lead to chaos.

You can watch that teaser, as well as a 2-minute making-of featurette featuring soundbites from co-creators Jonathan Nolan and Lisa Joy and executive producer J.J. Abrams, below.
