We have lots of questions about the upcoming HBO series “Westworld,” but the biggest is probably “why on Earth did J.J. Abrams and Jonathan Nolan want to remake that cheesy Michael Crichton killer robot movie from 1973”? But as the above teaser (aired during tonight’s “True Detective” season finale) showcases, the new drama seems a lot less interested in killer robot antics and a lot more excited about delving into questions about identity and reality. 

Featuring a crazy good cast including Anthony Hopkins, Ed Harris, Evan Rachel Wood, James Marsden, Thandie Newton, Jeffrey Wright, Rodrigo Santoro and Shannon Woodward, “Westworld” premieres in 2016. Watch the trailer above.
