HBO's new sci-fi thriller Westworld arrives in a few weeks, and there are plenty of clips and teasers coming our way. The latest focuses on Evan Rachel Wood, who plays Dolores, one of the androids who populate the theme park of the title. Check it out below:

A viral site called "Discover Westworld" has also launched, giving fans the opportunity to book a stay in the park. It promises an "unparalleled, immersive world where you have the freedom to become who you've always wanted to be--or who you never knew you were." Check it out here.

Westworld is produced by Star Wars: The Force Awakens director JJ Abrams and Jonathan Nolan, who co-wrote several of brother Christopher's movies, including The Dark Knight Rises and Interstellar.

It's a re-imagining of the 1973 Michael Crichton movie of the same name, with a high-profile cast that also includes Anthony Hopkins, Ed Harris, James Marsden, and Jeffrey Wright. Nolan has stated that part of his inspiration for the show came from video games such as Red Dead Redemption and BioShock.

It was recently reported that the reason filming on the show was halted earlier this year was so the writers could plan several seasons ahead.

"It wasn't about getting the first 10 [episodes] done, it was about mapping out what the next five or six years are going to be," actor James Marsden told Entertainment Weekly. "We wanted everything in line so that when the very last episode airs and we have our show finale, five or seven years down the line, we knew how it was going to end the first season."

Westworld premieres on October 2, 2016.
