Blade Runner 2049 Trailer


Here’s the first full trailer for Blade Runner 2049, directed by Denis Villeneuve (Arrival, Sicario), which continues to showcase some breathtaking imagery courtesy of cinematographer Roger Deakins while dropping some small hints at the plot as well. We also get our first look at Jared Leto playing some sort of replicant inventor or manufacturer, who may or may not be the main villain of the film. Harrison Ford is back, of course, although in this movie Deckard is helping Ryan Gosling’s character K, an LAPD Officer looking to “unearth a long-buried secret that has the potential to plunge what’s left of society into chaos.” Robin Wright, Dave Bautista and MacKenzie Davis also co-star. Blade Runner 2049 hits theatres on Oct. 6th; check out the trailer after the jump and let us know what you think.

Around the Web:

  • William Hill

    I’m officially excited even though I was initially apprehensive about a sequel.

  • masterbeef

    In a future where Atari reigns supreme

  • Jameson

    I was apprehensive at the announcement of a sequel, but with this much talent involved and the way it’s looking it’s hard not being pumped.

  • Colin

    I’m scared… some scenes/shots look stylistically right for BR, but others feel too modern/clean for the world portrayed in the original. I understand that time passes and things change, but I think that style over everything else is probably what people remember most about the original.

  • pcch7

    It looks insane visually and it sounds like Johansson has done a good job on the music. I just hope the story is at least decent. Still wish they had left Deckard out completely.

  • Thurston

    I can’t stop thinking about that jacket…it’s pretty damn cool.

  • LordAwesome

    Disgusting artificial digital cinematography. None of the texture of the original.

  • Loren

    Wonder what Jays top 5 jackets are in a movie? I remember him liking Stallones in Expendables 1 or 2, Shatners jacket in Wrath of Khan..not sure of others. Sean would probably say any jacket from The Matrix. You could give a case for Gosling having one for Drive, with the scorpion jacket.

  • Thurston

    I also wondered Jay’s top 5 film jackets are. I’m a long time Film Junk listener and I could have sworn this was brought up in the past…perhaps from a email question. I like Peter Fonda’s jacket from Easy Rider. Steve McQueen in The Great Escape jacket isn’t too shabby. And Uma Thurman’s yellow jacket in Kill Bill is a classic.

  • Deven Science

    Finally, a subject I’m passionate about! Okay, my top five movie jackets, put together in a few minutes, so I’m hoping I didn’t miss anything big.

    1. The Rocketeer
    2. Starlord’s long oxblood Ravager jacket
    3. Indiana Jones’ leather field jacket
    4. Tyler Durden’s red leather jacket
    5. Malcolm Reynold’s long brown trench coat

  • Tahir Abbas

    Was going to post that but you beat me to it.
    It just doesn’t look or feel right.

  • Lori Cerny

    Why do you wish they had left Deckard out?

  • pcch7

    Because it kinda ruins some of the ambiguity of the original. He can’t be a replicant if he’s still alive 30 years later and clearly Ridley was putting in clues suggesting he is a replicant. I know he’s not one in the book but it just answers the question people have about the movie and I don’t really want an answer.

  • Beat_C

    i’m shocked at how uninteresting and unimpressive this looks, like just another sci-fi blockbuster. but jared leto is in it, so i guess i shouldn’t be surprised.

  • ReelJunkie

    Looks absolutely gorgeous.

  • Indianamcclain

    Correct me if I’m wrong, but didn’t that ambiguity come from different cuts of the film?

  • Indianamcclain

    I’m sure Jay’s list would include Captain Kirk’s coat from Wrath of Khan.

  • Sean

    I feel like they must be smart enough to realize that the ambiguity is an important part of the original. Ridley Scott has said Deckard is definitely a replicant and Harrison Ford has said that he isn’t. Maybe they will come up with something new that can accommodate both theories. Or maybe they will make it definitively ambiguous. ;)

  • pcch7

    I’ve only watched the final cut so I’m not sure

  • pcch7

    hmm this is what I’m dreading. That he’ll be some sort of unique replicant, if he indeed is one. Cause according to the lifespan they have he’d be long dead. I guess we’ll just have to wait to find out but either way, I think it would’ve been better to simply not have him in it

  • Indianamcclain

    It isn’t even ambiguous in the Final Cut. There’s one point where Deckard has replicant eyes.

  • Stinker

    Vangelis is still alive, so why no vangelis score? This was essential, next to the visual effect, to create the mood.

  • Filip Van Lierde

    my theory: the Deckard in this trailer is the original “model” for the other replicant in the original BR. He was the super-detective that was replicated…

  • pcch7

    well Ridley is still alive too but not directing. Idk, Vangelis would’ve been cool but I don’t even know what he’s done lately. Johansson is pretty awesome so I think he’ll use the themes and make something great

  • devolutionary

    Speaking of the Goz, I would have included his interesting 80s satin throwback jacket in Drive.

  • Lori Cerny

    That is such an interesting theory that you should write a short story or treatment and get it made into a film. Not as a Blade Runner film, but something different.
