Blade Runner 2049

First full trailer for Blade Runner 2049 brings us back to the future

12:45 PM on 05.08.2017 // Matthew Razak

I've done questionable things.

The first full trailer for Blade Runner 2049 has finally landed giving us the best look yet at what the Ridley Scott produce, Denis Villeneuve directed film has on store... and I can't say I'm all the enticed. To be fair I didn't think Blade Runner really needed a sequel in the first place, especially given its ability to stay relevant in the years since its release. And if anyone really wanted more the underrated game delivered a surprisingly complex kind of retelling. 

But I digress, a sequel is here and we'll put our trust in Villeneuve to recapture the atmosphere of the original. Scott definitely doesn't deserve it. The trailer delivers a bit of the plot, which involves K (Ryan Gosling) tracking down Deckard (Harrison Ford) and trying to uncover some deep secret that could destroy everything. The original is proclaimed because of its introspective themes on humanity, and I'm not sure that this one is going to be able to carry on that tradition given the action and gun shooting rampaging through it. I also maybe reading too much into this, but are they telegraphing Gosling being a replicant a little too hard here? 

I guess I'm cautiously excited for something I never really wanted. And you gotta love the Atari throwback to the original film.
