The Westworld creators troll Internet with amazing spoilers video
Yesterday, Westworld creators Jonathan Nolan and Lisa Joy announced their intentions to spoil the entirety of Season 2 in order to combat spoiler culture. This all took place during a Reddit AMA. The deal was that if their post reached up to 1,000 upvotes, they would release a video that would spoil the entire season.
Needless to say, the post got over 4,000 upvotes. The creators then posted the video below, which starts off with new footage from the series. However, not everything goes according to plan. Instead, fans got to experience a Rick Roll moment courtesy of Evan Rachel Wood and Angela Sarafyan. You can check out the video below.
Based on the film written by best-selling author Michael Crichton (ER, Jurassic Park films), Westworld is a dark odyssey about the dawn of artificial consciousness and evolution of sin. Set at the intersection of the near future and a reimagined past, the series explores a world in which every human appetite, no matter how noble or depraved, can be indulged.
Westworld: Season One featured a star-studded cast led by Academy Award winner Sir Anthony Hopkins (Silence of the Lambs), Golden Globe winner Ed Harris (The Truman Show), Golden Globe and Emmy nominee Evan Rachel Wood (The Wrestler) and Golden Globe nominee Thandie Newton (Crash). The cast of this 10-episode phenomenon also includes Jeffrey Wright, James Marsden, Ben Barnes, Ingrid Bolsø Berdal, Clifton Collins, Jr., Luke Hemsworth, Sidse Babett Knudsen, Simon Quarterman, Rodrigo Santoro, Angela Sarafyan, Jimmi Simpson, Tessa Thompson and Shannon Woodward. Executive produced by Abrams, Nolan, Joy, Jerry Weintraub and Bryan Burk, Westworld is produced by Kilter Films in association with Bad Robot Productions and Warner Bros. Television.
The ten-episode second season premieres Sunday, April 22 on HBO.
