This weeks trailer of the week is:
Blade Runner 2049 (Trailer #1)
A slower week for trailers than last week, but we still got ourselves a hit with the first full length trailer for the upcoming Blade Runner 2049. After getting a tease last week, we only had to wait a few days to get first official trailer for long in demand sequel. The film sees the return of the title character portrayed by Harrison Ford, but not as the lead character here. That honor goes to Ryan Gosling, who plays a new young blade runner, who seeks some answers and Ford’s former blade runner might be his only help.
Set in the same futuristic world created by Ridley Scott back in 1982, new director Denis Villeneuve takes over the reigns here and while he doesn’t seem to be trying to change the look of the movies too much, he certainly up dated them and is clearly also adding some of his signature directing style that he has come to be known and respected for. With a list of previous movies boasting Arrival, Sicario, and Prisoners, I personally think there wasn’t much of a better choice to lead this new Blade Runner movie to hopefully new heights. Are you excited for Blade Runner 2049, and how do you think it will do compared to the original?
