We’ve had images from the new version of Westworld overseen by executive producers Jonathan Nolan and Lisa Joy, but HBO has decided to show off a tantalising short trailer for the series. Saddle up and take a look.

Loosely based on the 1973 film written and directed by Michael Crichton two decades before he wrote Jurassic Park, the series will expand upon the world of a theme park for adults where they can live out their wildest desires without consequences. At least, until something happens with the artificial life forms that inhabit the place...

Obviously the series has both the scope and time to be able to explore the various dramas of Westworld to a much deeper degree, especially the existential crises of the "characters" created to service visitors. And from the looks of the initial images and now this teaser trailer, it boasts some stunning visuals, with wide vistas and painstakingly realised Western towns. Not to mention a cast full of talented folk such as Anthony Hopkins, Ed Harris, Thandie Newton, Evan Rachel Wood, Miranda Otto, James Marsden and Jeffrey Wright.

The teaser carries no actual date, but confirms the 2016 launch for the show, which HBO is surely hoping can generate the same level of interest as Game Of Thrones. It should be on Sky over here shortly after its American launch, if it follows the Thrones model.
