For decades, audiences have been waiting to see some kind of follow-up to the iconic classic Ridley Scott film, Blade Runner. It was a film that, when released, wasn’t really given the time of day. Over the years, however, it’s found its place in the hall of fame of important sci-fi cinema, and is considered to be one of the films that sets the bar for the genre.
But could the sequel, Blade Runner 2049, live up to the promise of the original film? That’s an answer we likely won’t fully know until some time after we see the movie. As evidenced by the performance of the first movie, you can’t always rely on initial impressions to be completely accurate in terms of how a film will be received in decades to come. However, if there is one filmmaker who can get the flick to hit close to that high mark, it’s Arrival director Denis Villeneuve.
So far, we’ve had a teaser and full trailer for the flick, but despite that, it really didn’t give us a full idea of what to expect. What is the movie actually about? That’s what this trailer — the second full one — sets out to do.
Still on the list of unknowns is whether or not Harrison Ford’s character is a replicant. Based on all the evidence in that first film, that certainly seems to be the case, but there’s been no real official confirmation just yet, and unless producer Ridley Scott is lying out of his teeth, it seems like this film will be answering that decades-old question.
The synopsis for Blade Runner 2049 is below:
"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."
Blade Runner 2049 hits theaters on October 6, 2017.
