Blade Runner 2049 Teaser DropsDecember 19th, 2016
I’m usually pretty cynical about sequels and reboots – especially when it comes to classic science fiction films that I grew up on. But I have to say there’s something about the upcoming Blade Runner sequel that has me truly excited.
Perhaps it’s that director Denis Villeneuve has knocked it out of the park with movies like Sicario, Prisoners, and Arrival, or perhaps it’s that original screenplay writer Hampton Fancher is back, or perhaps it’s that Harrison Ford is reprising his role as Rick Deckard. Regardless, this brief teaser for Blade Runner 2049 gave me goosebumps, and I know what I’ll be doing on October 6, 2017.
We don’t know much about the plot as of yet, and the teaser doesn’t really give anything away, but here’s the brief synopsis that the studio has given us at this point:
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.
