Check Out The Trailer For Blade Runner 2049

December 19, 2016

I can't tell you how excited I am about this!  My nerdy brain is going to explode with excitement!

I never thought there would be a sequel to one of the greatest Science Fiction films of all time but apparently it's happening.  Blade Runner 2049 is set for release October of next year.  Two months and a year before the original takes place.  Harrison Ford returns as fromer Blade Runner Rick Deckard, who's job it was to track down dangerous replicants(robots that look convincingly human.  Sound familiar Westworld fans?) and "retire" them.  He's been missing for 30 years after taking off with replicant babe Rachel(Sean Young) at the end of the 1982 movie.(sorry about the spoiler)  We're still not sure if Deckard is a replicant himself.  

Ryan Gosling plays Officer K who has been tasked with finding Deckard and bringing him back on the job.  K could be a replicant too.  We won't find out until next year though. DAMN!  Check out the first trailer:


Original director Ridley Scott(Alien, The Martian) has handed over the job to Arrival director Denis Villeneuve.  It also stars Robin Wright, Dave Bautista, and Jared Leto.    

Here's a scene from the first Blade Runner starring the incomparable Rutger Hauer as killer replicant Roy Batty:
