We were actually surprised that it took this long for HBO to release character posters for the third season of Westworld – but good things come to those who wait… and have been waiting for Jonathan Nolan and Lisa Joy's series to return on Sunday, March 15.
So far, we've gotten poster art, an official trailer, a "hidden trailer" that found a way to be darker than the original, and snarkily mocking trailer that offered us When Caleb Meets Dolores – now 35% more romantic.
Now, it's a look at Evan Rachel Wood's Dolores Abernathy, Aaron Paul's Caleb, Thandie Newton's Maeve Millay, Jeffrey Wright's Bernard Lowe / Arnold Weber, Tessa Thompson's Charlotte Hale, and Ed Harris' William / The Man in Black – courtesy of HBO Asia… along with these three warnings:
"The real gods are coming."
"You're not the only predator here."
"Welcome to the end of the game."
Here's a look at the original trailer, which brings us back to the show's "real reality" and finds Dolores (Evan Rachel Wood) and Maeve's (Thandie Newton) paths destined to cross in a very apocalyptic way…
In the following "corporate video" for Incite, Inc. – a data-collecting company that is clearly looking to achieve god-like status within the Westworld universe – we see that they're more than happy to make our lives "better. From whether to butter your toast to whether the U.S. should nuke another country, Incite believes that the solutions to those problems exists in each and every one of us – we just don't know it… yet.
ABOUT US: The world can feel chaotic: big problems, no solutions, no one to lead the way. Global issues may seem so complex that untangling the answers feels impossible. Here at Incite, we want to make "impossible" a thing of the past. Chaos is merely a pattern waiting to be uncovered. You can help us chart a better future.
Powered by our revolutionary strategy engine, we are able to calculate sophisticated solutions to problems large and small, from global climate change to personal career growth. We believe we have a personal responsibility to make the world a better place, starting at home. Here at Incite, your data doesn't work for us — we work for you.
Now we're getting a sense of what happens when a god-like system runs head-long into we're assuming Dolores – creating a "critical event" that starts to unfold on March 15.
