The First ‘Blade Runner 2049’ Footage Is Here And It Looks Incredible

“Replicants are like any other machine,” says Harrison Ford’s Rick Deckard in the new Blade Runner 2049 teaser. “They’re either a benefit or a hazard. If they’re a benefit, it’s not my problem.”

Something tells us they’re going to be a hazard.

When news dropped a year ago that Blade Runner was finally getting a sequel, fans went a little crazy. Not only were Ford and one of the original writers returning, Ryan Gosling would be joining the cast (along with Jared Leto, Robin Wright, and Dave Bautista). Plot details remain tightly underwraps, but we’ve been teased with a teeny official synopsis:

“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 LAPD blade runner who has been missing for 30 years.”

What else do we know? Not much. Ridley Scott, who directed the 1982 original, did not direct this time around, though he is a producer on the project. We also know that, visually, it looks absolutely epic (we would expect nothing less). And we’re pretty sure Ford and Gosling are about to become our new favourite dream team.

Can Blade Runner 2049 live up to the original? Sadly, we’ll have to wait until October 2017 to find out.

    Original ‘Blade Runner’, I waited and waited to see. Took my buxom SO to the largest screen in Seattle (pre-IMAX). An older guy, replete with trench coat, sits down on the other side of her. (Movie Buff is the term they came up with to try and pigeon hole people like me.) Halfway through the film I get distracted when I hear my lady talking with the older guy; he’s pawing her. Angry, I stood up and he asks me if there is a problem, I tell him not yet but there is about to be. He scurried off and I got back to the film. She went and found the manager, a woman, and lets her know the guy is loose in the theater. The manager sends out a squad of ushers to buttonhole him. He’s nowhere.

    Later, when I processed the incident, I realized it wasn’t his groping her that set me off, if was the interrupting of my viewing the film. heheh

    Ridley Scott is one guy who knows where all our buttons are.
