Blade Runner 2049 Announcement Trailer


The first official trailer for the upcoming Blade Runner sequel is here, ready to deliver equal parts excitement and dread. Putting aside that questionable title and the nagging possibility that this could be a complete disaster, the movie has a lot going for it including Denis Villeneuve as a director, Roger Deakins as a cinematographer, and a cast that includes Ryan Gosling, Robin Wright, Jared Leto, Mackenzie Davis, Dave Bautista, and of course, Harrison Ford. This short announcement trailer presents the rain-soaked neon-drenched cityscape that we have come to associate with the original along with an intriguing post-apocalyptic landscape. It also teases a meeting between LAPD officer K (Ryan Gosling) and former blade runner Rick Deckard (Harrison Ford). Beyond that, there isn’t a whole lot to go on, but it certainly is tantalizing. Blade Runner 2049 hits theatres on Oct. 6th, 2017; check out the trailer after the jump and see what you think.

Around the Web:

  • Jr

    That is boss. Totally down to get brown with this.

  • Jameson

    It’s difficult for me to have concern when there’s this much talent involved and the trailer looks sick. Love the colors already.

  • pcch7

    Literally creaming for this. It looks just right, as it would with Deakins doing the lords work. Johannsson seems like a perfect choice for music, the mood is right on. I don’t think I’ve been this excited for a movie in my whole life

  • ProjectGenesis

    A voice over??? Have they learned nothing from the 27 different versions of the original we all had to buy? Weak sauce.

  • 1138sw

    Totally totally looking forward to this! Better not be crap! Or else I’m putting a Marine in a Bell Tower!!! Well maybe not that but I’ll surely be bummed!!

  • ReelJunkie

    This trailer got me rock hard.

  • Matt the Kiwi

    Wonder if the asked Vangelis if he wanted to reprise his score? He’s still working so would’ve been cool to have him add his magic touch.

  • stinker

    Hope its Vangelis, not some Hans Zimmer wanne be

  • stinker

    Could be good, but Warner, Sony and Colombia producing……..well i love 1941…so this could be not problem

  • RockJoker

    Cream dream supreme.

  • Matt the Kiwi

    Looks like they’ve already settled for Jóhann Jóhannsson who admittedly did an awesome job with Sicario but everything else he’s done went unnoticed. Icelandic people have a knack for embracing a dark and brooding tone so maybe he’ll nail it. Be great if he goes 80’s synth (it won’t feel like Blade Runner if he doesn’t).

  • Mike Reilly

    An abandoned Korean hotel, a dog (Artificial? Of course!) and the potential for a fully CGI’d Rachel who’s got more charisma than Sean Young’s original. Should be intriguing.

  • stinker

    Vangelis score was not …dark and brooding …more…Vangils. And the End Title Music is not typical for the rest of the score.

    It need´s a kind of Jazz meet Tangerine Dream (Zeit – Encore) meet Front 242 (Offical Version – Front by Front). Fear we will get “dreg”. run of the mil score.

  • pcch7

    Johann Johannsson is the next best thing to Vangelis imo. Think he’ll nail it

  • Lori Cerny

    Looks awesome and very, very much like BR in tone and premise.

    I am (slightly) concerned that the story will not be as layered or meaningful as BR.

  • Matt the Kiwi

    Ok, I’ll give you dark (I should have said melancholy but it was too hard to spell). But I’m sticking with brooding. Well, it’s my music to brood to anyway (particularly Memories of Green). Good to know there are some other Vangelis fan boys out there :-) We can only hope he comes back for Chariots of Fire 2: Feel The Burn.

    It’s Villeneuve. We’re safe.
