Westworld season 3 trailer sets up a world war of robots

All signs point to a Maeve vs. Dolores throwdown

Owen S. Good is a longtime veteran of video games writing, well known for his coverage of sports and racing games.

Westworld season 3 premieres in less than a month, and its final trailer shows the series pushing even further into the realm of sci-fi action than it has before.

The trailer foreshadows the meeting of Aaron Paul’s new character, Caleb, and Dolores (Evan Rachel Wood); the beginning of their campaign to destroy Delos, Inc. by any means necessary; and the opposition they’ll face along the way — namely, Thandie Newton as Maeve.

There’s also a Guns n’ Roses piano accompaniment of “Sweet Child o’ Mine,” some Elon Musk supertrucks and an OCP mech with Robocop vibes, flaming motorcycle fu, and Ed Harris getting a rather rough teeth-cleaning. Four stars, Joe Bob says check it out.

Westworld season 3 debuts March 15 on HBO. The previous trailer finally laid down a timeline for the events in this alternate future, setting this season in the year 2058. A news release from HBO bills season 3 as “a dark odyssey about the dawn of artificial consciousness and the birth of a new form of life on Earth.”
