Blade Runner 2049 Trailer #3

"Replicants are the future, but I can only make so many." Warner Bros has revealed the third trailer for Denis Villeneuve's Blade Runner 2049, the highly anticipated sequel to the seminal sci-fi classic Blade Runner from 1982. The second trailer was already incredible, but this one is even better, if you can believe it. This movie is now my *most* anticipated left in 2017. This direct sequel takes place 30 years after the original, 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 includes Ana de Armas, Jared Leto, Dave Bautista, Mackenzie Davis, Robin Wright, Barkhad Abdi, Lennie James, and David Dastmalchian. Everything about this looks amazing - the score, the visuals, performances. Chills.

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

Blade Runner 2049

You can still watch the very first teaser for Blade Runner 2049 here, or the second trailer / BTS featurette.

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?

    Nothing about this trailer made me exited to watch this movie
  • TheOct8pus
    This looks the bomb....
  • Eric Wilson
    I still think Gosling was a poor choice. He just seems too "pretty boy" to be playing a character that I feel needs to have grit to them.
    • txJM
      So was Ford in 1982.
      • notawesome
        And Drive? Was he too pretty boy in that? That character defined grit.
        • Eric Wilson
          Psychotic/unhinged doesn't equate to grit.
          • notawesome
            Does to me. To each their own...
          • Eric Wilson
            Fair enough.
        • txJM
          Hell no, he didn't.
          • notawesome
            Maybe I'll have to watch again or maybe I'll have to rethink my definition of grit but the chances of my doing either are slim to none.
          • txJM
            I don't blame you. It's a shit movie.
          • notawesome
            That soundtrack tho... fire

        Well first thing I saw Ford in was Star Wars. So I may have some overlap from that. But I still don't see Gosling as being tough enough for the roll. I don't buy him as a character being able to survive being a Blade Runner. I would buy him as one of Leto's cohorts.
    • He's not a pretty boy at all. He's a sad face.
  • Yeah! Even if the story is complete nonsense the visuals will be good.
  • Lagoya
    I watched the original for the first time two weeks ago (after trying and failing multiple times before that) and I hated every minute of it.
    • Nethanel DeCarmo
      Yeah, not gonna lie. I have never seen Blade Runner. I have fallen asleep through that as well. I won't deny the importance of it, but it was slow and I'm never prepared for how slow it actually is.
    At the very least, they are going to be remembered as cutting some EPIC trailers. I really do hope this turns out bad ass!
  • Bo
    Well, I hope for the sake of all those that are looking forward to this movie that it's at least half way decent. This trailer looked okay, but I fear the sensibilities of both those that are making movies today and those of the audience are so different from when the original came out it just won't be the same kind of movie and most likely not to my tastes and sensibilities. Movies today are very much geared towards satisfying large audiences more than in the days of old and I, for one, think they suffer because of it just attempting to reach the lowest common denominator. If you're not of that denominator you'll more than likely be unable to be moved by what is presented. But hey, that's just me. I hope it's good enough to satisfy the audiences it's aiming for.
    • Well said Bo.
      • Bo
        Thank you, sir!
    • Efterklang
      That's very true for many films today, but it's definitely not true for Villeneuve's movies.
      • Bo
        Thanks for your reply, and yes, I suppose you're correct regarding Villeneuve's movies in that they are not highly geared towards the large audiences. I just have not been able to connect with his work thus far...except for the very good film he made early titled Incendies. Just an excellent film. Since working in America with Hollywood actors his stuff just comes up short for me. I liked much of Sicario, but had too many problems with it. I did not like Arrival at all and that movie borders on mass audience catering. I sure wish him well on this trying to grab the gold ring thing with another Blade Runner movie, but have my doubts. It for sure is geared to the large audience. Cheers.

    It will be probably a decent film since I trust the director. But why this? It will bring some pleasure to some viewers, but mostly, it's just a way to earn more money for those who stand behind it. And this can't be extraordinary since it cannibals the first one ...
  • I find it nearly comical people get so twisted up over a trailer; making judgements you can't fully flesh out until you see the entire film. I'm holding my judgement until I see the movie. The trailer doesn't even set the tone, but does sell the idea.
    • Tester
      Whats the point of trailers then ?
      • Exactly what Quanah said - to sell the idea. To give you an impression of what it's like, show a bit of footage. But we all know trailers are sometimes deceptive or (like Rogue One) include footage that isn't even in the film. It's just a way to sell you. Kind of like how McDonald's ads have big, juicy burgers in them but if you go buy one it's usually soggy, floppy crap.
      • Well, not to freak out over! That's certainly not the point. You know what and why a trailer is. You don't need me to tell you that, but I'll say this: trailer does not a movie make.
  • The earlier trailers were stronger. Now that the whole movie has been spelled out, the sense of mystery is gone and I'm having doubts about it now. My gut is telling me this will be a beautiful but mediocre and forgettable sequel attempting to cash in on fans of the original. I hope I'm wrong though...
    • Bo
      Well said to you too, Raw.

    10.06.17 - but that was last month!!! No wait, I'm an idiot.
