    That's because he is old, he's 78 this year.

    Really looking forward to this, I think it's going to be Epic (capitalised). I do wonder though how many people know westworld, having spoken about it with friends it appears not many have heard of it so I think it could well be a slow burner?

    You had me at HBO, then Thandie Newton, Jeff Wright, Hopkins, Abrams and Nolan. I get really hyped from trailers and have been disappointed many times but I will eat my hat if that doesn't deliver!

    Should be even better for people who have never seen the movie almost jealous of them.

    Atleast for me it is one that it doesn't have the same impact once you know the full story - and the updated TV series so far shows potential for being a really good version of it.

    I wouldn't worry about JJA being attached. The trailer I saw looked awesome and the cast is quite something too. I'm looking forward to it!

    Loved the old movie when I was younger. Will hopefully enjoy watching this. Beats all the US political dramas that are saturating UK tv.
