Blade Runner is one of the most important movies in important movie history. It’s a masterpiece of sci-fi, blah blah blah. Blade Runner 2049 is the sequel. It’ll be interesting, mostly because it’s not like Do Androids Dream of Electric Six has a follow up book.
Fuck me, I checked on Wikipedia and there ARE sequels. They’re not real, though. They’re Fake Sequels. Some dude wrote three of them, with Philip K. Dick’s blessing. I mean, the first of those came out in 1995 while the source material was 1968, so let’s all acknowledge them as cash grabs.
This is the trailer for Blade Runner 2049. You have figured that out because of the title of this post. You’re smart. How smart? Smart enough to wonder if you are a replicant. Personally, I’m a replican because I’m not negative but to each their own.
Hey, look, this is the synopsis provided by Warner Bros.
Thirty years after the events of the first 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.
From executive producer Ridley Scott and director Denis Villeneuve, #BladeRunner2049 stars Ryan Gosling, Harrison Ford, Ana De Armas, MacKenzie Davis, Sylvia Hoeks, Lennie James, Carla Juri, Robin Wright, Dave Bautista and Jared Leto.
