While we’ve gotten some great teases of what to expect from HBO’s upcoming ‘Westworld’, many of the cast and locations have still been a mystery on what to expect visually. Thankfully, HBO has shared 20 new images that we’ll be passing along to you today that give a better idea of the characters as well as the scope of the show!
First up is a shot of a train pulling into a station that really screams how much of a western this will be when not dealing with AI’s gone renegade.
Next up is a look at Ingrid Bolsø Berdal who is hunting something, or, someone.
As the biggest name on the series as well as the leading architect behind ‘Westworld’ is should come as no surprise that we’ll be seeing a lot of Anthony Hopkins:
As big of a draw as Hopkins is, James Marsden and Evan Rachel Wood are right behind him and clearly will have a strong presence on the series.
We know Wood is going to be showing up in quite a few ways with this shot being one of the primary teasers for the series.
Sidse Babett Knudsen looks to have quite a commanding posture here!
I’m not quite sure as to what Jimmi Simpson is up to though it seems like he’ll be working with Hopkins.
Simon Quarterman almost looks a little bewildered in this shot.
Ben Barnes is having a good time back in the Wild West
Shannon Woodward and Sidse Babett Knudsen look to be quite busy in making sure that ‘Westworld’ up properly up and running
Now who are Anthony Hopkins and Jeffrey Wright talking to here?
Whoever it was has left Jeffrey Wright looking pretty thoughtful.
Back in the wild west Thandie Newton and who I can only guess is her daughter appear to be out for a stroll.
Another shot of Evan Rachel Wood back when things were simple for AI’s everywhere.
Another look at Ed Harris who will be playing someone that most viewers likely won’t be a huge fan of.
Another shot of Thandie Newton where this time, she is dressed quite a bit differently so this appears to either be her job on the show or, another iteration of the character. As an AI, we’ll likely see a few actors and actresses able to be used as multiple characters.
Here we have Rodrigo Santoro looking to be some kind of outlaw, bounty hunter, or lawmen.
Now for a close up of James Marsden.
For fans of Angela Sarafyan and outfits from the old west, this will clearly be an eye raiser for a few readers out there…
Finally, we have a picture of Thandie Newton and Rodrigo Santoro where Thandie’s character doesn’t seem to be having a conversation that she is too thrilled about.
All in all, this has been a great set of new shots from the series and while much of the plot is still shrouded in mystery, we’re starting to get a feel of which characters we’ll be seeing interacting on the small screen when ‘Westworld’ is released.
