Check out the teaser for HBO's newest series, premiering in 2016, Westworld. Based on the 1970's sci-fi flick written and directed by author Michael Crichton, Westworld is about a theme park populated with lifelike animatronics that come to life and begin killing the patrons. It's like Jurassic Park but with robot cowboys.

The new teaser for the HBO adaptation seems to lean heavily on themes of reality and consciousness, as we can all guess that 'Dolores' is probably a robot who thinks she a human cough cough Blade Runner cough cough.

Let's just hope HBO can be as cool as this:

An English village named Kings Langley plans to change its name to Kings Landing - the name of the main fictional city in HBO's popular series, Game of Thrones. The change will occur for the first week of the show's season 3 DVD release.

The planned change came to fruition when one of the show's producers heard Kings Langley was a stop along the route of a train he was on. After talking with village officials about the possibility of them temporarily changing the area's name starting February 17th, they agreed with the hope that local business owners will get on board to encourage a growth in tourism.

If someone tries to tell you there's going to be a secret Game of Thrones episode in February, tell them to relax; it's only a look behind the lens. There should (theoretically) be no dragons present.

On February 8th, HBO will air a behind the scenes special called "Game of Thrones: a Day in the Life." The half-hour special will take you through a single day of filming season five on three different sets in Ireland, Croatia, and Spain. The special will highlight the cast, sets, and production, but should give us a glimpse of what's coming later this spring in season five.
