What happens in a world free of rules, limits and consequences? That’s the question posed by HBO’s newest smash hit, Westworld, the sci-fi series from Jonathan Nolan and Lisa Joy which completed its first, spectacular season back in December, leaving us with a ton of questions in the process. While the next outing is still a ways away – don’t expect it until at least 2018 – you’ll get the chance to revisit the titular theme park this fall, as Warner Bros. Home Entertainment is bringing the show to Blu-ray.
Featuring all 10 episodes from the series’ acclaimed rookie season, plus immersive never-before-seen special features, including three all new featurettes and a gag reel, Westworld will be priced at $49.99 for the DVD while the Blu-ray will cost you $54.97. Of course, you could also go for the 4K Ultra HD Blu-ray Combo Pack, which comes in at $64.99. Whichever option you choose, know that you’re in for a real treat, as this is truly one of the best things on television at the moment.
“We are thrilled to release the first season of HBO’s critically-acclaimed and most watched new series Westworld in 4K Ultra HD with HDR, Blu-ray and DVD,” said Rosemary Markson, Senior Vice President, Television Marketing, Warner Bros. Home Entertainment. “Fans will devour this beautifully crafted series – a perfect candidate to receive the fully immersive 4K HDR experience along with limited edition collectable packaging and all-new special features.”
Based on the film written by best-selling author Michael Crichton, Westworld is a dark odyssey about the dawn of artificial consciousness and evolution of sin. Set at the intersection of the near future and a reimagined past, the series explores a world in which every human appetite, no matter how noble or depraved, can be indulged.
Again, it’s by far one of the most exciting, interesting and downright addicting shows out there right now and whether you’re diving in for the first time or hoping to re-watch the stunning first season, you can’t go wrong picking up Westworld on Blu-ray when it releases later this year.
