New ‘Westworld’ Promo & Opening Credits Released Online

Following last night’s awesome premiere of Westworld (you can read our review here), HBO has released a new promo for the series, giving us a look at some of the upcoming episodes. The promo also introduces William (played by Jimmi Simpson) and Logan (Ben Barnes), who didn’t appear in the pilot but will be key players moving forward.

In addition to the promo, HBO has also released the opening credits of the show, which were scored by Ramin Djawadi. You might know Djawadi from his work on Game of Thrones and Pacific Rim, but he also scored Warcraft and 2008’s Iron Man.

You can check them out below.


The next episode of Westworld (titled Chestnut) will air on Sunday, October 9 at 9/8c on HBO. Here’s the official episode description:

A pair of guests, first-timer William (Jimmi Simpson) and repeat visitor Logan (Ben Barnes), arrive at Westworld with different expectations and agendas. Bernard (Jeffrey Wright) and Quality Assurance head Theresa Cullen (Sidse Babett Knudsen) debate whether a recent host anomaly is contagious. Meanwhile, behavior engineer Elsie Hughes (Shannon Woodward) tweaks the emotions of Maeve (Thandie Newton), a madam in Sweetwater’s brothel, in order to avoid a recall. Cocky programmer Lee Sizemore (Simon Quarterman) pitches his latest narrative to the team, but Dr. Ford (Anthony Hopkins) has other ideas. The Man in Black (Ed Harris) conscripts a condemned man, Lawrence (Clifton Collins, Jr.), to help him uncover Westworld’s deepest secrets.
