“I thought your world would be so different from mine. There’s no difference at all, is there?”
HBO debuted an exclusive trailer for Westworld season 3 for attendees at San Diego Com-Con today. Jonathan Nolan and Lisa Joy’s HBO drama, originally set in a futuristic wild west theme park populated by killer robots, returns for its third season in 2020 with several new faces and locations in tow.
Take a look at the new trailer for the third season of Westworld below:
The latest trailer is vague on plot but offers a parade of intriguing images, including Thandie Newton’s Maeve beating up Nazis in a 1940s spinoff of Westworld and Evan Rachel Wood’s Dolores exploring, and potentially disrupting things in a futuristic city. We also get a few looks at some other returning characters like Jeffrey Wright, Luke Hemsworth and Ed Harris, who could be an android this time around, while new characters played by Aaron Paul and Vincent Cassel are also seen briefly.
During the panel in San Diego Comic-Con co-creator was keeping tight-lipped about the upcoming third season. However, via The Hollywood Reporter, did divulge that Westworld started out a dystopian vision of our world. Adding, “three seasons in, I think it’s the best-case scenario, to be perfectly honest. The form of AI we have on the show is thoughtful. Murderous, but thoughtful. I think we’re now heading into the era of dumb artificial intelligence.” Nolan referenced how algorithms decide people’s choices in today’s day and age, describing “algorithmic determinism” as a cautionary theme for season three. “You get to play around with big ideas and pretend they’re far in the future, but they’re not,” he continued. “They’re right now. In season three, we discard with metaphor and deal with the world as it is: a giant shit show.” Producers also previously promised that season 3 would be less confusing than its time-bending predecessor.
Westworld season 3 is not scheduled to premiere until sometime in 2020.
