Westworld- Teaser Trailer (HBO)

It was something of a relief when HBO announced that Westworld would be released this October considering production on the sci-fi thriller was halted back in January.

The premium cable network has now released a teaser trailer proving that its new series is something to get truly excited about - and one that looks like it will fill the gap between Game of Thrones season six and seven rather satisfactorily.

From JJ Abrams and Jonathan Nolan (brother of filmmaker Christopher), Westworld is based on Michael Crichton's 1973 film of the same name which tells the story of a futuristic theme park.

The series is billed as "a dark odyssey about the dawn of artificial consciousness and the future of sin."

It's all-star cast includes Ed Harris, Thandie Newton, James Marsden and Anthony Hopkins who'll appear as the theme park's powerful creator.

"I think there may be something wrong with this world; something hiding underneath," says Evan Rachel Wood's character Dolores towards the end of the trailer before capping with: "These violent delights meet violent ends."

Prepare for extreme bouts of tension when Westworld premieres this October on HBO in the states and Sky Atlantic in the UK.
