It’s a good thing the season one finale of Westworld left so many things for viewers to discuss. They’re going to be waiting a long time for it to return.
Along with the questions about autonomy, self, and what it means to be real, Westworld also stirs up mysteries of a more practical nature. Namely, how does this giant park even work?
There was a moment in last night’s Westworld that made everyone who’s seen the original film freeze in shock. Thankfully for our sanity, showrunner Jonathan Nolan has confirmed that we all saw what we thought we saw.
Actually, George R.R. Martin’s Game of Thrones/Westworld crossover plan makes more sense than the actual show. His idea is that there’s a Game of Thrones World next to the Westworld park. And there should be one. Because we all know, with the state of creative capitalism being what it is, that the first totally…
For years, Person of Interest has been right on the cutting edge between commenting on current events and speculating about the future. With its final season, the show is depicting a futuristic nightmare—and yet, it’s also more topical than ever before. We talked to producers Jonathan Nolan and Greg Plageman, and they…
News broke over the weekend that the highly anticipated HBO sci-fi series Westworld has shut down production. And while that’s true and sounds like incredibly bad news, it’s actually the opposite.
The very first teaser for Batman Begins had a laser-guided focus: to remind you that this was far from the goofy Batmans of Forever, of Batman & Robin or Batman ‘66. But apparently, its bleak monologuing was even a bit too much for the actual (and plenty grim) movie itself.
With the season finale of True Detective upon us tonight, HBO has released the first teaser of their upcoming show, Westworld, and it looks fantastic.
A woman is sitting in a chair, her face slightly battered, paralyzed. A fly is slowly walking across her face, and she can’t move — even when the bug walks over her opened eye. She can hear a male voice in her head, asking, “Do you want to wake up?” It’s the first extended look we’ve gotten of Jonathan Nolan’s series …
The final act of Interstellar was a bit of mess, packed with feel-good mystical pseudoscience that was out of place in a sometimes glorious space opera. It turns out that ending was all director Christopher Nolan's idea and that Jonathan Nolan's original script called for a more straightforward—and darker—ending.
Tons of science fiction stories have shown artificial intelligence turning against us — but Person of Interest has broken new ground in showing an A.I. takeover that most people don't even know is happening.

Holy crap, three seconds of HBO's rebooted television adaptation Westworld just got us insanely excited. This show could be really, really fun and weird — and that's great!
Interstellar is an epic movie about space exploration with promising tag lines like "Go Further." But in reality, the pitch that landed screenwriter Jonathan Nolan the Interstellar gig sprung from his fear that humans had peaked at one flag on the moon. Here's our exclusive interview with Interstellar writer Nolan.
Person of Interest is one of the most fascinating explorations of artificial intelligence in pop culture. But executives originally pushed for the show to avoid mentioning where Finch's "irrelevant" numbers came from at all, according to creator Jonathan Nolan. The show's producers also told us what's next in season…
Person of Interest is back from mid-season hiatus, and already the show is delving deeply into science fictional themes, like the nature of AI consciousness.
