It HBO's first Super Bowl ad in 20 years -- and definitely worth it.
Don't question the nature of your reality -- that really was a new trailer for Westworld!
The HBO show premiered its season two trailer during Super Bowl LII on Sunday in HBO's first Super Bowl ad in 20 years. The last time HBO purchased time during the big game was in 1998, and both that year and its first time (in 1997) were ads for the network as a whole.
Sunday's Westworld trailer showed a fair amount more than fans saw during it's Comic-Con teaser last year - teasing the increasingly unstable boundaries between the show's complex storylines, all set to Kanye West's "Runaway." The Super Bowl spot, directed by the show's co-creator Jonathan Nolan, pulled footage from all of season two (which started filming in July and wrapped in January).
