To say Blade Runner 2049 is one of the most anticipated sequels ever is really not saying much. Ever since its 1982 release, Blade Runner has garnered a huge following from fans and even critics who panned the movie when it first came out. You can count me among those that love it as I find it to be the best sci-fi film ever made, but that is just me. Now we have our first full look at things that gives us a sense as to what story we’re going into.
Here is the trailer for Blade Runner 2049!
Well I gotta say my previously mild interest has actually skyrocketed. I really want to see this now!
The neo-noir look and feel, hell even the sound, of the original film is certainly not lost here and shouldn’t be, given how it made up so much of the previous film’s identity, but some of the new set designs fit in here as well from the looks of it. The original Blade Runner was amazing in its presentation at the time given what films could work with, but think about all the advancement and leaps that have been made in movie technology since then? If anything this movie will not fail to be visually stimulating.
What we get here is that Ryan Gosling’s LAPD Officer K has discovered something terrible and needs the guidance Rick Deckard once again played by Harrison Ford for some answers. Though I’m pretty sure the one question audiences want answered most is if Deckard is indeed a Replicant. There is just no avoiding that at all, so let’s just all get ready to hear it get asked over a million times come this fall.
