‘Westworld’ is a television enigma for the modern era, or whenever the show takes place in the 21st-century future.
Aside from Reddit users who routinely dissect each episode with a scalpel, sometimes to the playful annoyance of Jonah Nolan and Lisa Joy, who are the head writers, co-creators, and husband and wife duo of the critically-acclaimed HBO-adapted series. There was a moment at Comic-Con between the first and second season of ‘Westworld’ when a fan at a large panel asked Mr. Nolan about “Samurai World,” and the famed screenwriter dryly replied with his eyes staring downward, “Do you want there to be a Samurai World?”
It was all in good fun, of course, as he enjoys the constant conversations Reddit users engage in concerning ‘Westworld.’
Mr. Nolan recently gave insight into his digital relationship with Reddit users, as well venturing into the risky contortion act in moviemaking known as high-level casting from a writer’s perspective with a familial connection.
FYI – There are a couple f-bombs dropped in the following Hollywood Reporter interview
Jonah Nolan is no joke yet he is a joker in the way fans want him to be as a writer and storyteller.
The man’s name was Robin Williams. The man’s occupation was making people laugh. And the formula for comedy is tragedy plus time.
We owe Robin Williams, the man who made us laugh out loud and cry like no other comic (Mrs. Doubtfire, dears), to take the time to hear and understand his personal tragedy that, evidently, was a parallel force pulling at the imaginative, faster-than-lightning comedic genius.
This brand new trailer for the brand new HBO documentary ‘Robin Williams: Come Inside My Mind’ will make us laugh and make us cry. Hopefully, HBO has timed the release date of Monday, July 16 at 8 p.m. ET correctly so audiences can appreciate both emotions separately and as one.
One final picture of the art form known as Robin Williams.
As Chris Webber would say this time of year: Timeout!
With my tickets safely guarded for tomorrow night’s primetime showing of Ready Player One, a new trailer dropped for one of the best shows on television. With that being said, he’s a brief deviation from this week’s Ready Player One-themed blog posts.
HBO’s Westworld has been adapted by superstar screenwriting husband and wife Jonathan Nolan and Lisa Joy from the 1973 film written and directed by the late Michael Crichton. The show’s themes, characters, writing, sets–and virtually everything found in this imaginatively pleasing, yet tragically gritty and violently-designed world–enlightens, entertains and challenges its viewers with delightfully surgical precision. And it’s this complex dynamic that is refreshing in the ever-evolving television medium. Add into this the support from the groundbreaking creative services at HBO and saying they’ve got a winner would be a dramatic understatement.
Ladies and gentlemen, prepare yourselves for–in a word–chaos.
(Warning: This is not a PG-rated trailer or show)
Westworld returns to HBO on Sunday, April 22 at 9 p.m. ET.
In a few more words, season 2 of Westworld looks primed to surpass the revised welcome to Michael Crichton’s other park defined by his other chaos theory in this show’s debut season.
Dr. Ian Malcolm would have a field day…and a shot of whiskey in the saloon with a beautiful host while wearing a black hat.
The reality of seeing Ready Player One’s visually stunning virtual reality world is coming to a theater near us all very soon.
And as this week has been dedicated to this film’s highly-anticipated release, let’s dive right into a recent interview with legendary director Steven Spielberg, actress Olivia Cooke, and actor Tye Sheridan.
These days, the line between reality and virtual reality seems to be moving ever closer towards a gray zone (ironically). The fictional, dystopian future portrayed in Ready Player One seems to reveal an immersive world between reality and virtual reality, yet one that hints at distinguishing reality from virtual reality.
Welcome to a world perfectly built for Steven Spielberg.
Ready Player One arrives in movies theaters tomorrow, March 29.
