Blade Runner 2049 Trailer

"There is an order to things. That's what we do here - we keep order." Warner Bros has unveiled the second trailer for the new Blade Runner 2049 movie, a sequel to the original seminal sci-fi classic Blade Runner, first released in 1982. Directed by one of my favorite working filmmakers, Denis Villeneuve, with Ridley Scott consulting as well, the more we see from this movie, the better it looks. This direct sequel takes place 30 years after the original story, and stars Ryan Gosling as the new LAPD Officer who must find Deckard, who has been missing all this time. Harrison Ford returns to play Deckard, and the new cast of 2049 also includes Ana de Armas, Jared Leto, Dave Bautista, Mackenzie Davis, Robin Wright, Barkhad Abdi, Lennie James as well as David Dastmalchian. This looks absolutely spectacular, with stunning cinematography thanks to Roger Deakins, and the same grittiness as the first one. I so can't wait to see this.

Here's the second official trailer for Denis Villeneuve's Blade Runner 2049, direct from WB's YouTube:

You can still watch the very first announcement teaser for Blade Runner 2049 here, to view more footage.

Thirty years after the events of the first science fiction 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 is directed by Quebecois filmmaker Denis Villeneuve, of the films Polytechnique, Incendies, Prisoners, Enemy, Sicario and Arrival previously. The screenplay is by Hampton Fancher and Michael Green; based on a story by Ridley Scott and Hampton Fancher; adapted from Philip K. Dick's novel "Do Androids Dream of Electric Sheep?". Warner Bros will release Blade Runner 2049 in theaters everywhere on October 6th later this fall. For more follow @bladerunner. Looking good?

    Not the best cut trailer to like set up the tone of the film but it looks stunning! The crew x cast behind this one; it has to succeed! Seeing Deckard old is soo weird lol.
    • Quanah
      you're complaining about a trailer? you were pretty much stroking yourself over the Black Man trailer...I mean Black Panther
  • Yes!! This is what i am waiting for! Looks good!
  • Mr. Nice Guy
    Film of the year!
  • LeoForPrez
    I just exploded in my pants
  • deerosa
    WOW! The look and score of the original. Denis is on it!
  • Duane
    If Harrison Ford dies in this one I'm gonna go all Solo on Greedo.
    • Hopefully he will. He's getting too old for this sh*t
      • Duane
        Hah. You just gave Indy a black spot! #indiana5
        • That's exactly what is bothering me. He didn't age well. I found him borderline creepy in Indy 4. I can't imagine what he will look like in Indy 5. He should have stopped at last crusade. Indy works well as a trilogy. Better to go the "young indy" way instead of persisting in making sequels.
          • Duane
            Not to hi jack this thread and make it Indy (sorry) but they could go meta and cast Alden Ehrenreich as young indy. Meh.... just a thought.
  • Lots to look forward to this year.
    • Duane
      certainly shaping up that way.
  • kitano0
    I want to see this now. Right now!!!
  • grimjob
    Well, I never wanted this, but I'm certainly interested now. I have a good feeling about this.
  • Efterklang
    Looks amazing, can't fucking wait.
  • Sam Guthrie
    Looks good. Didn't know McKenzie Davis is in it. Even better!
  • This looks incredible! Love the music, style and cinematography. I'm just hoping Gosling isn't going to scream in this...
    • Or to date a girl.
  • shiboleth
    Oh sexy, this looks so sexy. Movie theater is gonna explode when I see it for the first time ...
    • LeoForPrez
      you sound like a sex offender or a terrorist
    Is there an official composer yet? I hope some one cool gets it. Maybe a musician.
    • Zach Newton
      Johann Johannsson
      • The guy who scored the Arrival? Let's hope he will deliver a more melodic score this time.
        • Zach Newton
          He's capable of melody, for sure -- his rock album Dís (2004) showcases that. However, I hope there are some soundtrack elements and environmental noises that weave themselves into the score also. Vangelis did wonders on BR.
          • Vangelis score is a masterpiece. Very memorable, and very "visual".
  • JohnDoeB
    Ok, so I think I've just seen the trailer to my second most anticipated film of the year.
    • grimjob
      The first being?
      • JohnDoeB
        • LeoForPrez
          you spelled Dunkirk wrong
  • Butchy Butch
    ... and you're all going to be massively disappointed, because you simply can't step in the same river twice. Half of the trailer contains obvious and banal BR cliches and other half is the stuff that doesn't look or feel like BR at all. Plus, Ford should retired. He barely moves.
    • Charles Knowlton
      Can't step in the same river twice? Says who? Nonsense.
      • Butchy Butch
        Heraclitus. And the fact you don't understand something, doesn't mean it's nonsense.
        • Exactly...
        • LeoForPrez
          But being wrong makes something
          • Butchy Butch
            but that's not the case :)
        • Charles Knowlton
          Your response to me makes no sense. Tell me what I don't understand. Don't dodge the question either. WHAT don't I understand?
    • It is almost impossible to recreate the Blade Runner effect, that's sure, but you can reinvent Blade Runner. And that's what Villeneuve is trying to do probably. and yes, I would do without Harrison Ford too. I wasn't thrilled when I knew that he was part of the movie.
      • Butchy Butch
        I'd agree with you. Reinvetion is the way to go. But, unfortunately, in half of the shots they're tying simply to copy, other half are... crap. Go through the trailer again. It's like fucking Xerox. If it was directed by Scott I wouldn't even bother to watch it. Villeneuve gives a little hope, but I can't honestly say I see his hand in this trailer. All I see for now is producers desperation. We'll see
        • Nethanel DeCarmo
          Reinvention means reboot, but this is a direct sequel which means it needs to tie in somehow. That's like have force awakens to be shot completely different from the original series, when that is what made the film work. It isn't copying, it is continuation. If Blade Runner bombed and had no legacy and need a complete reboot, then yes, steer away from everything.
          • Or you can explore the lore from a new and fresh perspective. For the analogy i would bring the Alien-Aliens case.
      • TAH
        Yeah, even in the posters Ford just looks like a guy who's popped in to fix the radiator. What's with the grey tee-shirt? Surely we want to see him in his trench coat from the original?
    • LeoForPrez
      Empire Strikes Back, Aliens, Godfather 2, etc are disagreeing with you
      • Butchy Butch
        Are they? The were made almost an the same time as their predecessors as organic continuation. And I don't remember TESB or Aliens trying desperately to copy the the mood or exact shots for that matter from SW and Alien. So this is the completely different thing.
        • LeoForPrez
          Stop changing the argument. Sequels aren't inherently bad. I can list a dozen more that are great.
          • Butchy Butch
            I'm not changing anything. I didn't say anything about sequels in general.
          • LeoForPrez
            "because you simply can't step in the same river twice" That's what you said
  • Moe
    I have a bad feeling that this movie is gonna bomb and we'll have Ghost in the Shell to blame for that happening.
    • It will hardly bomb. Maybe it will not be for everyone, but it will be a must see movie. Ghost in the Shell didn't have the Villeneuve-Ridley factor.
      • Moe
        Okay, maybe "bomb" waa the wrong word. That is the most negative of movie release terms... Still, I don't see this movie doing very well or as well as we may hope it to do. Let us hope that the director-producer combo you mention will help. Just my 2 cents...
        • Ghost in a shell wasn't that bad. No 8 of course, but a 7 for people who don't know manga comics. I enjoyed it...
    • LeoForPrez
      Great will most likely be fine
    • Nobody went to see the first Bladerunner either. It was a flop.
  • I hope Villeneuve take risks. He doesn't need Blade Runner 2049 to be fresh and new. He needs it to tell a compelling story that feels connected to the first, and yet still his own creation--his own making. If anyone can pull it off, Denis can. Question is, did he pull it off?
    • Answer: Of course! (we don't know).
    • TAH
      Well, if he doesn't he'll be ending a streak of quality film-making. Prisoners, Sicario, Arrival - top class.
      • Quanah
        those were all mediocre for me
  • ragethorn
    Second trailer? Wasn't this the first trailer?
    • TAH
      Yeah I'm sure the 'first' trailer was just the teaser.
