Blade Runner 2049 Trailer #3 “The Future of the Species is Finally Unearthed”

I have never tried so hard to like a movie in my life and failed as I have with Ridley Scott’s Blade Runner. I have watched it FIVE times, and every time I walk away thinking it’s boring dreck. HOWEVER, I have loved every trailer I’ve seen for Blade Runner 2049, every still, every shot, every line. I think it’s awesome that Harrison Ford in the last years of his career is revisiting his legacy characters and giving them glory moments, and the audience a reminder of why he’s the one of the greatest actors of his generation: the everyman, instantly relatable and always entertaining. Director Denis Villeneuve has never disappointed me, and I don’t think he’s about to start here. For a full synopsis, read below.

Harrison Ford in Blade Runner 2049
Thirty years after the events of the first film, a new blade runner, LAPD Officer K (Ryan Gosling), unearths a long-buried secret that has the potential to plunge what’s left of society into chaos. K’s discovery leads him on a quest to find Rick Deckard (Harrison Ford), a former blade runner who has been missing for 30 years.

The film also stars Ana de Armas, Sylvia Hoeks, Robin Wright, Mackenzie Davis, Carla Juri, Lennie James, with Dave Bautista, Edward James Olmos and Jared Leto. All of which look fantastic in the role they play.

The movie was directed by Denis Villeneuve and it’s set to be released on October 6, 2017.

  1. You can only tell so much from a trailer. But this makes the movie look a lot more interesting than the first one, which relies on visuals, atmosphere and worldbuilding more than original storytelling (which is maybe why you’re not so crazy about it). A more interesting plot, combined with visuals that frankly look like they exceed the original’s… I dare not entertain the notion of what that would mean. There is such a thing as setting yourself up for disappointment. This looks unexpectedly incredible, though.
