WESTWORLD Season 2 Trailer Debuts During Super Bowl LII
HBO debuted the first trailer for the second season of the hit series Westworld last night during Super Bowl LII, which featured the Philadelphia Eagles defeating the New England Patriots 41-33.
The one-minute, 30-second trailer opens with a piano version of Kanye West's "Runaway" and features Evan Rachel Wood's android host character Dolores Abernathy speaking in a voiceover as we see beautiful Utah scenery that houses the Wild West-themed amusement park known as Westworld.
Dolores begins, "Look at this world...this beautiful world. We built this world together. The world where dreams come true. A world where you can be free..."
Things turn dark as we see a herd of cattle transition us to the inside of the Delos offices, as men with guns take out the herd of synthetic creatures before being trampled themselves.
"...But this world is a lie," continues Dolores as we see a fleeting image of Bernard Lowe (Jeffrey Wright), The Man in Black (Ed Harris), and Clementine Pennyfeather (Angela Sarafyan). "This world deserves to die, because this is your world. We've lived by your rules long enough..."
Another rebellious host, Maeve Millay (Thandie Newton), slow-mo walks through the Delos offices as the carnage keeps happening around her. "...We can save this world," continues Dolores. "We can burn it to the ground, and from the ashes, build a new world -- Our world.”
If you'd like to check out the trailer, you can view it below thanks to the official HBO account on YouTube...
Westworld returns to HBO for Season 2 on April 22, 2018.
