As a fan of Hugh Howey’s books, I’m fairly excited to observe Apple TV+’s live-action adaptation of the hit sci-fi sequence Silo, in regards to the remnants of humanity who’ve been dwelling in an underground bunker for thus lengthy they’ve forgotten why they’re there. However Apple has simply revealed the opening credit for the variation, and I couldn’t assist however observe they appear a bit… hmm. Simply hear—and watch—for your self.

Here’s composer Atli Örvarsson’s opening to Silo:
And now, for comparability, right here’s Westworld, by Recreation of Thrones composer Ramin Djawadi:
Am I loopy? I don’t assume I’m loopy. The music sounds a lot alike, from the sinister, more and more frantic piano to that ultimate chord. (Is it in the identical key? I don’t know a lot about music, but it surely appears very shut if it’s not.) And the visuals, stuffed with languidly shifting snippets meant to be evocative of the sequence and its themes give it the identical vibe, even when one’s about robots and the opposite’s about a particularly vertical nuclear bunker.
This isn’t a judgment name! In the event you’re going to compose a gap credit music for a dystopian science fiction TV sequence, you may do lots worse than being impressed by the opening for the dystopian science fiction TV sequence Westworld. However now I’m curious to see how a lot, if in any respect, Silo itself can even attempt to evoke the just lately canceled and dumped HBO sequence. On condition that the Silo sequence was created and run by Graham Yost, who additionally did the identical for the superb albeit non-sci-fi sequence Justified, I’m truthfully not significantly fearful about it not being good TV, nevertheless it shakes out.
Silo premieres on Might 5, and stars Rebecca Ferguson, Widespread, Harriet Walter, Chinaza Uche, Avi Nash, David Oyelowo, Rashida Jones, and Tim Robbins.
