Westworld season 2 trailer shows super bull chaos

Killer robots, scenic vistas and rampaging android bulls — Westworld has revealed its eagerly awaited season 2 Super Bowl trailer. Above is HBO’s extended 90-second version of the sci-fi drama’s new ad (a 30-second version ran during the big game).

The trailer is narrated by rancher’s daughter turned host rebellion leader Dolores (Evan Rachel Wood) who declares, “We can save this world. We can burn it to the ground. From the ashes, build a new world. Our world.”

Shots include mysterious looks at falling snow (where are they?), that unfinished host looming and moving behind Bernard (Jeffrey Wright) and a stunning sequence of killer robotic bulls herded by newly woke host Maeve (Thandie Newton). The bulls are sent charging through the adult theme park’s behind-the-scenes labs, trampling soldiers who we assume were sent to Westworld to suppress the host uprising.

The ad was directed by series co-creator Jonathan Nolan, who once again has picked a modern classic song for instrumental re-imagining by the show’s composer Ramin Djawadi — in this case, Kanye West’s “Runaway.”

As a kicker, the ad finally revealed the Westworld season 2 premiere date: April 22.

HBO’s ambitious science-fiction thriller Westworld is based on the 1973 Michael Crichton novel of the same name. The series developed by Jonathan Nolan stars Anthony Hopkins, Ed Harris, Evan Rachel Wood, James Marsden, Thandie Newton, and more top names.
