Counting down the days to the season two premiere and in desperate need of a Westworld fix? Boy, does HBO have a vacation for you! Yesterday, the network announced plans for a “Live Without Limits” weekend beginning March 9, 2018 at the South by Southwest Conference and Festivals in Austin, Texas. This new and ambitious immersive experience will feature a custom-built town just outside Austin, which will include “iconic elements and locations” from Westworld such as The Coronado hotel and the Mariposa Saloon.
As the dust settles from the premiere of Westworld‘s first official season 2 trailer during the Super Bowl a couple weeks ago, the show’s cast looks to be back on the interview grind with only a couple months left until the season premiere.
Tessa Thompson [Charlotte Hale] recently sat down with Larry Wilmore on his podcast “Larry Wilmore: Black on the Air” to discuss her involvement with the Time’s Up movement. The Ringer transcribed Thompson and Wilmore’s talk, and during their conversation she compared her Westworld character to one of the larger goals of the movement, that being to empower women and people of color across all industries.
As if the excitement of a new Westworld trailer and season two premiere date weren’t enough, the creative geniuses behind the series used a hidden code to reveal the existence of more parks – some of which we may see in the upcoming season. Viewers were already aware that there are other parks outside of Westworld thanks to the season finale – we were even given a glimpse of one of them. Now we have confirmation that there are six total!
Westworld showrunner and co-creator Jonathan Nolan directed HBO’s first Super Bowl ad in 20 years, and it was a big hit with fans. The Westworld trailer broke into the top 10 trending videos the day after it aired, and it’s currently sitting at 10 million views on YouTube. Yesterday, Nolan spoke to Entertainment Weekly about the inspiration behind the ad and offered some hints for season two.
It’s finally here! The trailer for Westworld‘s second season premiered during the Super Bowl last night, and it was spectacular. Fans have been eagerly awaiting new footage ever since the first teaser debuted during San Diego Comic Con – seven long months ago. Now that we finally have it, let’s dive in for a closer look!
Westworld is back, with enough mayhem to make the wait worthwhile! Get stoked because we finally have not just a confirmed date for the new season of the show, but an amazing trailer unveiled during the Super Bowl. Tonight, HBO confirmed Westworld‘s return for another ten-episode season, with season 2 premiering on Sunday, April 22nd, in the golden 9PM ET timeslot.
The exciting ad was HBO’s first Super Bowl ad in 20 years, a huge sign of confidence. HBO has confirmed that the Westworld Season 2 Official Super Bowl ad was directed by series co-creator Jonathan Nolan. Check it out:
Despite what a certain groundhog predicted this morning, spring is on the way! That means the premiere of Westworld‘s second season is looming ever closer, and HBO is ramping up their marketing efforts accordingly. Today they bring us an exciting announcement, and a rather cryptic tweet (what else would we expect from this series?) to share!
Westworld addicts and video gamers rejoice!
According to Engadget, Warner Bros. Interactive Entertainment has announced a Westworld mobile game, coming soon to a phone or tablet near you. Currently in development, the game is being produced by Behavior Interactive in association with Kilter Films (Jonathan Nolan and Lisa Joy‘s production company behind the show).
There is apparently no rest for the weary! Just days after wrapping filming on Westworld‘s second season, Evan Rachel Wood (Dolores) headed up to Toronto, Canada for a Q&A at TIFF Bell Lightbox. Lucky for us, the show’s leading lady had no issue talking about the HBO hit’s new season!
According to Daily Mail, Wood’s discussion about Westworld began with her admitting that she really didn’t know where the show could go after season one’s grand finale, but it sounds like co-showrunners Jonathan Nolan and Lisa Joy were up to the challenge of answering that question. “You are really, really in for it,” says Wood. “I had no idea, I thought, ‘God where are they gonna go from here, how are they gonna top this?’ – first five minutes of the first episode, [I thought,] ‘Oh they’ve done it!'”
With the new year comes a new batch of exciting Westworld production news courtesy of a couple of the stars’ social media accounts!
Yesterday Evan Rachel Wood (Dolores) shared a humorous photo of herself on her Instagram laying face down on a hardwood floor, with the caption “Me after 6 months of working on #Westworld season 2.”:
