Another trailer dropped for the sequel to 1982’s Blade Runner today, and like the lasttwo trailers we saw, this movie sure is going to look pretty. I know that’s not saying much, but hey — it’s better than the trailer not looking amazing.
We get more context for the film’s world in this trailer, along with a lot of cool new footage. Really I don’t have a lot more to say beyond “this movie, at the very least, is going to look really cool.” I mean, it’s a trailer — the only good indicator it can really give us is visual. Like any long delayed sequel to a classic film, I’m nervous. You never know when you’re going to get Rogue One or The Phantom Menace instead.
The long awaited sequel to Blade Runner is coming this fall, and today another trailer for the film dropped. It’s hard to say whether or not Blade Runner 2049 will be a worthy successor to the cyberpunk classic, but at the very least it’s going to look very, very pretty.
I mean, we’re getting teased more information about the film, but we still don’t know for sure what brings Ryan Gosling’s LAPD Officer K out to the middle of nowhere, where Harrison Ford’s Deckard has been hiding. I mean, it’s probably safe to assume it has to do with his history as a blade runner — but still. I guess we’ll all find out together.
The sequel to the dystopian scifi thriller Blade Runner may have taken forever to get here, but as next year slowly crawls up on us, the arrival of Blade Runner 2049 gets closer. And, to no one’s surprise, we now have a trailer for the film. For those living under a rock, in the sequel Ryan Gosling stars as LAPD Officer K, who is in search of the first film’s protagonist Deckard (played by the returning Harrison Ford). The teaser trailer doesn’t tell us much more than that, but it manages to look amazing.
Which is important, I guess.
I don’t know, it’s easy to get excited about sequels to films I grew up with. On the other hand, I got excited about Independence Day: Resurgence at one point too – and look how that turned out. I guess I’ll just keep my fingers crossed.
Blade Runner 2049 comes out October 6, 2017.
