Blade Runner 2049 Trailer

"I had your job once… I was good at it." "Things were simpler then." Warner Bros has unveiled the first teaser trailer for Denis Villeneuve's Blade Runner 2049, the highly anticipated sequel to Ridley Scott's seminal sci-fi Blade Runner (first released in 1982). This direct sequel takes place 30 years after the original story, and stars Ryan Gosling as 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 as well as David Dastmalchian. This doesn't exactly reveal much, it's just an introductory teaser, but I am very happy with the way it looks. The coloring is nice, the mood and music are spot on, I'm in. Excited to see more from this.

Here's the teaser trailer (+ poster) for Denis Villeneuve's Blade Runner 2049, direct from WB's YouTube:

Blade Runner 2049 Poster

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 whatโ€™s left of society into chaos. Kโ€™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, 2017 next fall. For more, see @wbpictures. Your thoughts?

Sound design is perfect. Very intriguing. I need to see more. But i'm definitely going to see it on big screen no matter what the trailer looks like.

Whoa. Nice job on the cinematography. Great look and feel....interested to see more

This maybe the last bit of advertising I watch for BLADE RUNNER 2049. I feel like it was just enough to pique my interest until the release of the film.

DAVIDPD on Dec 19, 2016


Looks very promising, probably my most anticipated movie of 2017.

Efterklang on Dec 19, 2016


lovely. atmosphere, voice over (both new and from the original) spot on, one character you know, one you don't. no tease of story, and quite frankly, that's fine. enough to hook. i don't envy Villeneuve's task, and i was first in line to dismiss this sequel for existing at all; but it does, it's here, and the initial signs are - who'd have thought? - good.

son_et_lumiere on Dec 19, 2016


Looks nice, and with Villeneuve at the Helm you know you get quality. Best choice ever...

ari smulders on Dec 19, 2016


Sold. Now this is something I want.

grimjob on Dec 19, 2016


Has Villeneuve taken Nolan's spot?

Trey on Dec 19, 2016


Looks at Nolan's resume and success...looks at even close

2001HAL on Dec 19, 2016


No. Villeneuve is a damn good director though.

III on Dec 19, 2016


Nolan is the living Kubrick.

tarek on Dec 19, 2016


I would say that for Villeneuve. I still think that Nolan is mediocre in many respects despite some good films ...

shiboleth on Dec 19, 2016


Well...I am fan of his mediocrity then. ;D Villeneuve is definitely talented ( and a humble dude ). But he isn;t yet in the same league as Nolan. Just my opinion of course.

tarek on Dec 19, 2016


We all are tarek victims of some mediocrity. I absolutely respect yours and cherish mine. In fact, I would prefer more mediocre people like you, to be honest. So, don't be offended, it was not meant to be that. Nolan has earned some respect in my opinion with his earlier films (Memento, Prestige, Insomnia and maybe in some respect Interstellar) but not with that Batman charade or Inception. Of course, his films are better than most of Hollywood production, but I think that is his quality and range: to be just a bit better than that and nothing more. D. Villeneuve is something quite different and is doing more steadily and his work is with more quality. As you said; but that's just me ...

shiboleth on Dec 19, 2016


;D Take care my dear friend.

tarek on Dec 19, 2016


"especially nolan" HAHAHAHAH Nolan is well on his way to having a better career. I love Kubrick but Nolan has been nothing short of incredible and Kubrick has some questionable movies on his resume. Let's not forget his failures just because his successes were so good. Nolan is easily the best director of the last decade.

2001HAL on Dec 19, 2016


A career represents the sum of their work put forth.

2001HAL on Dec 19, 2016


Hey Bo! Long time no news. Hope you're doing fine. Nolan doesn't like either that we compare him to Kubrick. In fact he said that he is inimitable and that no one should be compared to him. But as I'm not Nolan, I will dare. ;D In fact, he share a lot with Kubrick, at least in his awesome sense of details.

tarek on Dec 19, 2016


Just to say hello, Bo. Nice to see you woken up a bit. I'll skip this exchange between you and tarek and enjoy it only for reading. Glad to hear you're doing fine. At some point I got worried about you. Good news I was wrong about it ...

shiboleth on Dec 20, 2016


All is cool, Bo, of course. Yes, people have the right to deal with toxicity around them in a way they find it fit. No complaints about that. I support you totally in that. I am fortunate (or not, who knows) to see a lot of exciting and and even tumultuous things throughout many days in my life so I don't get very much affected by some immature people. Or I have learnt how not to be affected. Who knows? And, what really matters, I mostly get involved with intelligent people (oh yeah, tarek is one of those), so toxicity is not really touching me since it's touching itself for that matter. Anyway, you take care of yourself and enjoy life. Come around and say hello from time to time. You'll be always welcome ...

shiboleth on Dec 20, 2016


I gotta be honest, the original Blade Runner didn't do much for me (which ever version I watched). Visually it was incredible, and the atmosphere was more interesting to me than the actual story. However, after playing the 1997 Westwood Studio computer game "Blade Runner" I gained a new respect for the film and it's nuances. I bought the 5 disc special edition when it was released a few years back (complete with police flying hot wheels car). This looks visually on point and with Villeneuve at the helm, I have high hopes. BTW, which version is your favorite version? I'm still confused as to why there's five....

RAW_D on Dec 19, 2016


The game was such an effort and such a good addition to the story and the world.

ErrorSapiens on Dec 19, 2016


I've been wanting to play that game, love point & click adventure games. Was hoping they'd add it on GOG, but it hasn't showed up there yet.

Efterklang on Dec 19, 2016


so you've probably loved Myst and Raven. i love point and click puzzle games,

tarek on Dec 19, 2016


I actually haven't tried those, was/am more into the LucasArts style adventure games like Monkey Island, Indiana Jones and the fate of Atlantis, The Dig etc.

Efterklang on Dec 19, 2016


You should definitely give them a try.

tarek on Dec 19, 2016


And when you finished those: Simon the sorcerer or Kyrandia series was great non Lucasart games. Still are.

ErrorSapiens on Dec 19, 2016


MYST was fantastic. Riven...good, but not AS great imo. My first computer game was Full Throttle. One of the best soundtracks in a video game.

RAW_D on Dec 19, 2016


that would be awesome. Or a tab port.

ErrorSapiens on Dec 19, 2016


I swear I saw it on STEAM recently....

RAW_D on Dec 19, 2016


I doubt it, wish it was though.

Efterklang on Dec 19, 2016


Mine is the director's cut, without the voice over. ( I have the 5 discs set too) I like voice over in noir films, but not in a movie like this. Well, the 5th is the blueprint ( PQ and special effects are not great). One is with voice over, One the director's cut, the others are just different cuts if my memory doesn't fail me.

tarek on Dec 19, 2016


Personally, I have always considered BR as film noir. And the original version with the narration will always be my fave.

kitano0 on Dec 20, 2016


It's a futuristic film noir indeed.

tarek on Dec 20, 2016


Love the soundtrack and the look of the film. Every time this move is released on film at the Ken theater in San Diego I watch it!

deerosa on Dec 19, 2016


Interest piqued

Xerxexx on Dec 19, 2016


I just made my oh-face

2001HAL on Dec 19, 2016


I'm crying. In a good way.

Nielsen700 on Dec 19, 2016


Blade Runner is the first film I had to watch countless times before considering it one of all time favs. I am scared but damn that looks so good. Can't wait!

III on Dec 19, 2016


hear hear.

tarek on Dec 19, 2016


this is the same guy who thinks Dunkirk is a movie about cowards. there are dumb people and there are trolls and then there are dumb trolls. we know which one this guy is.

2001HAL on Dec 19, 2016


What a limited vocabulary you possess lol. You need debugging.

Lagoya on Dec 19, 2016



Lagoya on Dec 19, 2016


AHAHAHAHAH, what I read, was "I am too stupid to get good movies." Troll confirmed.

Higgens on Dec 19, 2016


Well up for this. Should be good to get back into the Long Tomorrow.

Carpola on Dec 19, 2016


Let me save you the hassle, turns out Deckard is actually a coward and not a replicant !!

Tester on Dec 19, 2016


Come on, we're all gonna watch this. Definitely something what Star Wars, re quality, will never achieve. I know, everything is different between them (except Harrison Ford, of course), style, the story, the atmosphere and what not. But still, this is better. I also hope that some kind of spirit from Philip K. Dick will be saved in this. Villeneuve could pull this ...

shiboleth on Dec 19, 2016


Empire Strikes Back > Blade Runner

2001HAL on Dec 19, 2016


In fact, not much of the comparison. Fun over work of art ...

shiboleth on Dec 20, 2016


Both are art

2001HAL on Dec 20, 2016


Yes he can...

Alex Billington on Dec 20, 2016


I absolutely rely on that since Dick deserves some credit after he left real narrative treasure to film industry in general...

shiboleth on Dec 20, 2016


Bet ya Gosling is playing an Android (running on safe mode). Hope so, cos that's the only way he can convince me he's anything other than a crap actor... Ford on the other hand IS Han, IS Indiana and IS Deckard...... I'll watch it for Ford

My Deaf Dog on Dec 19, 2016


He's actually a solid actor.

2001HAL on Dec 19, 2016


You are definitely Barking Mad 2001HAL Solid is a great way to describe his acting though ๐Ÿ˜‰

My Deaf Dog on Dec 19, 2016


Says the guy who thinks the British were cowards. Your opinion means shit to me.

2001HAL on Dec 20, 2016


Now that's just silly, Gosling is great. Perfect casting.

Efterklang on Dec 19, 2016


OK Gosling is great ๐Ÿ™‚

My Deaf Dog on Dec 19, 2016


you're talking to a guy who thinks he's a crap actor. that's going full ruh-tard. never get into a conversation with a guy going full ruh-tard

2001HAL on Dec 20, 2016


you missed the part about going you're a coward and illiterate

2001HAL on Dec 21, 2016


Gosling's never been great in anything... merely serviceable. I hope he rises to the material.

Darwin on May 7, 2017


You're a bit late to the conversation, you're also wrong.

Efterklang on May 8, 2017


And you were a bit late in your original reply, and I'm perfectly correct.

Darwin on May 8, 2017


So you don't have the intellectual stamina to watch arguably the greatest SciFi film of all-time. A genre defining masterpiece by one of the all-time great directors? Tell me why I should care about your thoughts on this again?

Verithin on Dec 19, 2016


It's a film from a different era... I'm sorry you can only watch strobe lights to feel entertained. If only your parents hadn't shoved you in a corner stuffed with Adderall...

Verithin on Dec 19, 2016


I'm not sure you understand how to use the word "validating" or how to make a correlation between two ideas. Oh, wait... you probably don't understand what correlation means either. Sorry to disturb your 12th viewing of Fast Five... get back to that and remember, the butter goes on the popcorn, not your head.

Verithin on Dec 20, 2016


If you hate the movie why are you posting in this thread? Who's the "keyboard warrior" here to do nothing else but be a contrarian? A troll is a troll is a troll 100% of the time... have fun watching reruns of Zardoz under your bridge.

Verithin on Dec 20, 2016


your mom is a whore

Lagoya on Dec 21, 2016


Wow, you have problems.

Darwin on May 7, 2017


Then you weren't paying the slightest bit of attention to what was happening. Pretty much everything in the movie says something...

Darwin on May 7, 2017


2017 is going to be a fantastic year!

Cody on Dec 19, 2016


This is looking (and sounding) far too much like the first one. I don't want another Bladerunner. I want a NEW Bladerunner that's as good as the original, but is it's own film. I thought Villeneuve would be the guy to deliver that, but now I'm not so sure.

Charles Knowlton on Dec 20, 2016


Blade runner in space? Blade runner in a sunny beach?

tarek on Dec 20, 2016


I disagree. This looks amazing. It needs to at least take place in the same universe as Blade Runner. Ambience, sound and color are a big part of that in cinema, and most long-delayed sequels have gotten it all wrong. Quite a bit of it looks fairly distinctive anyway, while not violating the essence of the original. I agree that it needs to stand on it's own (something Episode VII didn't do, for instance) but I have every confidence in Denis Villeneuve to do that.

Boiler Bro Joe on Dec 20, 2016


Don't be silly. everybody knows that the Academy is a joke.

tarek on Dec 20, 2016


Take your meds

2001HAL on Dec 20, 2016


You're my favorite dealer Doc.

tarek on Dec 20, 2016


Now that's the truth.Biggest joke on Hollywood.

My Deaf Dog on Dec 20, 2016


First he calls the Brits cowards...and then he says he couldn't finish Blade Runner. Congratulations...we've found the biggest moron who posts here and surprisingly his name isn't Bo.

2001HAL on Dec 20, 2016


Oh my good God you mad mad fool, Nominated hahaha. Screw what the Academy think..

My Deaf Dog on Dec 20, 2016


yes...bad actors routinely get nominated. you sir are a genius.

2001HAL on Dec 20, 2016


Yep, So true HAL they also win Oscars Sandra Bullock got 1...

My Deaf Dog on Dec 20, 2016


What happened to the smart trolls? We only seem to get the dumb ones like this fool.

2001HAL on Dec 20, 2016


So was Carrot Top.

Cyberdine on Dec 20, 2016


No he was not

2001HAL on Dec 20, 2016


How does Ryan Gosling get billing over Harrison Ford or Robin Wright??

CyraNOSE on Dec 22, 2016


Because he's the star of the movie... And is probably being paid the most. He IS also a famous actor, you know. But really, it's mostly because he is the lead character/star of the movie.

Alex Billington on Dec 22, 2016


Quote from youtube comments: Blade Runner 2049??? I've seen only the first one! Where are the other 2047?

dude on Dec 24, 2016


If you had problems watching one of the best moves ever made, then that's your (rather severe) problem.
