Exactly when we were yearning for Game of Thrones, as it is about to end with its final season in 2017, and we couldn't decide what we'll do on Sundays, that's when HBO surprised us all with their new series Westworld. Directed and written by none other than Jonathan Nolan. Westworld is a science fiction story of an adult amusement park, and it's first episode aired recently on 2nd of October 2016. The first episode of the Westworld has more than 3 million views.
Claiming to be the successor of the epic tale Game of Thrones, I have no doubt that this series would keep us hooked on Sundays. So, stop crying and watch Westworld.
Brother of the Hollywood director Christopher Nolan, Jonathan had jumped into the television industry a long time ago. While Christopher is making some legendary motion pictures in Hollywood, his brother Jonathan marked his directorial debut with the latest released television series Westworld.
Often compared for his creativity with his brother, Jonathan has tried various forms of storytelling, unlike his brother who is only focused on Hollywood.
Michael Crichton created Westworld in the form of a film. Crichton had written a novel, and it went on to become a movie. Though, Westworld is not a brand new idea for the audience, a twist in the tale added by Nolan in it would keep us hooked; I can bet on that!
Techniques of videography and added value of VFX will make it look more futuristic and fresher than before.
Giving his novel a form of movie is one of the biggest achievement for Michael Crichton. He never thought of seeing it again, and that too in the form of television series. Jonathan is working hard on this show as HBO and audience is expecting a lot from it.
Jonathan Nolan with the help of Lisa Joy has worked more than three years on the script of this show. In August 2013 HBO announced his plans for bringing a television series, and since then he's working on it. His hard word is paying off, and it's seen in the first episode of the show.
The twist is the middle name for Nolan brothers. Everything that is created by Christopher or Jonathan Nolan is going to have a mind-boggling twist. GoT is famous for its epic twist and turns, imagine what Nolan would do now. It'd have double thrill and twists. I'm already waiting for the second episode.
1st episode of Westworld has already created buzz around the world, and with every episode, its audience count is going to increase. I know it is early to predict the success of the show and its comparison with GoT, but Jonathon Nolan can work wonder with this series. We will witness it in coming Sundays.
The first episode of the show is not yet available on YouTube, but you guys can watch that trailer right here. One thing is sure, in comparison to GoT, you'll find more violence, more action, more intimate scenes, and more twisted plot in the Westworld.
