TRAILER: Blade Runner 2049

Via Hypable:

The Blade Runner sequel has been 30 years in the making, but now Harrison Ford is back as Rick Deckard, joined by Ryan Gosling, Robin Wright and Jared Leto! When Ridley Scott’s sci-fi epic Blade Runner about a man who hunted down android, humanoid replicas came out in 1982, it became an instant classic.

The trailer shows Ryan Gosling entering an abandoned mansion, and coming upon an armed Harrison Ford. “I had your job once,” Rick tells the newcomer. “I was good at it.” Although few plot details have been revealed, we can assume that Ryan Gosling is the new blade runner, and that he has in fact been sent to hunt down Rick himself.

  • Sam_Handwich

    people who enjoy this sort of movie will find this to be the sort of movie they enjoy.

  • Strepsi

    Denis Villeneuve is the best choice for this. I LOVE the original, and although Jared Leto is perfectly cast for being preternaturally pretty, no one beats Rutger Hauer… he was sexy and scary as hell.

    • Cousin Bleh

      I love that someone on here knows this movie is in good hands with Villeneuve. The cinematographer Roger Deakens is also amazing as is the composer Johanne Johansson, both of which are going to be critical to making this film work.

      Plus, I’d watch Ryan Gosling fold laundry.

      • stevenj

        Both Roger Deakens and Johanne Johansson did the cinematography and music (respectively) for Sicario (dir by Villeneuve). If you haven’t seen it I highly recommend it.

        • Cousin Bleh

          Have definitely seen Sicario. My boyfriend went to sleep, but I was enthralled.

      When I was a kid I had some serious daddy issues about Rutger Hauer

    • That_Looks_Delicious

      It’s strange. I’m as gay as they come but I’m not at all attracted to Ryan Gosling, Jared Leto, Matt Damon, Ben Affleck, James Macavoy, Michael Fassbender, Matthew McConnaughy, Orlando Bloom, Robert Pattinson, Bradley Cooper, Gerard Butler, Ryan Reynolds, Leonardo Dicaprio, Aaron Paul, the Hemsworth brothers, Jude Law, Christian Bale or most of Hollywood’s other modern-day “leading men,” even though I do like a lot of them very much as actors.

      • JW Swift

        It’s fine. I have enough competition for the likes of Gosling, et. al., without you, too. (grin!)

      • Strepsi

        As far as sexually attracted, I would agree in large part, except for Michael Fassbender – he’s hot as sin. And Chris Hemsworth doing comedy is hot.
        My top attractive leading man is still Colin Farrell. My favorite of all time is Montgomery Clift.

        I’m curious: Who do you like?

      • BobSF_94117

        This must be a riddle, and you’re a lesbian!!!

      • Skeptical_Inquirer

        I remember hearing that men in the classic movies looked more masculine and less boyish than the current crop.

        Do you like Cary Grant and Humphrey Bogart? How about Toshiro MIfune?

        • That_Looks_Delicious

          Yes to all those. Also, Gregory Peck, Rock Hudson, Burt Lancaster, Yul Brynner, Sean Connery, James Garner, Montgomery Clift, Warren Beatty, Dirk Bogarde (!), Steve McQueen, Marlon Brando (before he got obese he was as perfect as they come), Charlton Heston (before he got political), Tyrone Power, Glenn Ford, Gary Cooper, Alan Bates and, among the lesser-known ones and old TV, David Janssen, James Franciscus, Guy Madison, Robert Conrad (!!), Guy Williams (!!!), Gavin O’Connor…. All hotter than the current crop, IMO.

      • greenmanTN

        Who do you like then?

        I’m rather partial to Christopher Meloni and Liam Neeson (that nose!).

    Man and I recently rewatched 1976’s “Logan’s Run” starring a fantastically young and beautiful Michael York.

    Be still my beating heart.

    • stevenj

      Ahhhh, After Dark….still have a few issues packed away somewhere as 70’s souvenirs. Michael York came on my radar when Something for Everyone was first released. He sure was hot.

      • another_steve

        Lol. Me too. I have issues of it packed away somewhere.

        I also have boxes of the early Advocate newspapers. I subscribed to it — and of course, as with all subscribers and their subscriptions, had the best intentions to read them. But it never happened.

        I’ve already donated boxes of my old queer stuff to NYC’s LGBT center archive. I was active in early-1970s NYC queer politics and had accumulated a shitload of stuff over the years.

        The Advocate newspapers I intend to donate to one of the California LGBT archives.

      He was handsome, no doubt. But the movie…awful. Almost as bad as Zardoz. I liked him better in The Three Musketeers.

      • another_steve

        Awful it was… but it was one of the early attempts at what today has morphed into the cinematic dreck highlighted in this post of Joe’s.

        The sets and scenery and special effects in “Logan’s Run” are, by today’s standards, high camp.

        Back then, though, they were state of the art.

        • canoebum

          Oh, I saw it in the movie theater. Seemed like a good idea at the time, but I left disappointed.

      • JDS

        The only reason I liked Zardoz was seeing Sean Connery practically naked in every seen. If you watch closely while he is running in some scenes you can see his bait and tackle swinging. Yum!

    • greenmanTN

      It’s really not a good movie but the cast looked great. LOL. I remember when it played on TV (and I had seen it already in the theater) and I was little tyrant and wouldn’t let anybody in my family talk during the movie. 🙄

      Is Michael York gay or bi? I always got that vibe from him but it might have been wishful thinking.

      • JDS

        In Xanadu, it seems they use the same rotating disc as Logan’s Run. At the end of Xanadu while Olivia is singing her guts out I always scream “Renew! Renew!”.

        • greenmanTN

          I’ve never seen that movie. Didn’t it involve roller-disco or am I thinking of something else?

          • JDS

            It had some roller skating in it. It’s a fun movie to watch just for the musical numbers. The rest of the movie is blah.

      • another_steve

        Well if Michael York isn’t gay or at least bi, that certainly establishes that there is no God.

        I thought that in its pre-CGI era, Logan’s Run had some creative and imaginative special effects. The writing is dreck, but visually it’s fun to watch.

        Lovers of sci-fi need to view it as a period piece, I think — much in the same way as the early years and episodes of the Doctor Who series.

  • Rebecca Gardner

    I still believe everyone, even Deckard, were Replicants.

    Totally OT but I have The Little Book of Chinese Proverbs at my desk and decided to randomly open it and see what proverb I find, and maybe it will explain the insanity of today’s world. It was perfect and I wanted to share.

    • Cousin Bleh

      They say this movie isn’t going to resolve the Deckard replicant or not question, but the very nature of it seems to suggest otherwise. Deckard should only have lived 4 years, unless he was an experimental model like Rachel that doesn’t have an expiration date. Still, he’s obviously aged 30 years, and they’ve never suggested that replicants age.

      • EweTaw

        Unless you’re Rutger Hauer. Then you dissolve into a little puddle.

    • canoebum

      In an effort to reclaim my composure, I pulled my copy of A Distant Mirror, by Barbara Tuchman, off my bookshelf. It’s one of those books I’ve had on my reading list for a long time and I figure it’s a good time to see how humanity survived the Middle Ages, now that we’re returning to a feudalistic society.

  • David Brian Holt

    I love that sci-fi has been having a renaissance lately.

    • Robert Conner

      But enough about the election.

      • Cousin Bleh

        Dystopian societies were a lot more fun when they were fiction.

        • ByronK

          Can’t wait for the tv series of The Handmaid’s Tale! I know they’re also working on an adaptation of the MaddAdam trilogy which would be incredible if they can pull that off.

          • Cousin Bleh

            I am so looking forward to that series, but damn if Margaret Atwood’s works about patriarchy don’t feel prescient right now.

      • clay

        • I remember seeing the film visiting the Embarcadero Center Cinema in San Francisco and asking for two tickets for “Bareback Mountain” by mistake. The look the older lady at the ticket window gave me was priceless.

  • safari

    The original is a gem. I’d really rather not have yet another remake.

    • Jon

      This is a sequel, not another [fucking] reboot 😀

      • safari


  • EdmondWherever

    Are they still pushing the idea that Deckard was a replicant? He got kind of old, is that what androids do? Get grey and wrinkly?

    • Treant

      In which case, why bother, am I right?

      • EdmondWherever

        The whole point of being an android is to avoid the grey hairs!

    • Cousin Bleh

      But he wears an earring, so he’s still hip with the kids.

  • Treant

    When Ryan Gosling grows up, will he change his name to Ryan Goose?

    • JWC

      predictably when he groes up

      • JWC

        sorry makes that grows up

      • He is one of those guys who is getting so much better looking as he gets older. Now that he is in his 40’s he is really starting to get handsome.

    • Cuberly

      Don’t you mean Ryan Gander?

      That’s actually not a bad name.

  • pj

    im in…..loved the original.

  • Ernest Endevor

    More fascist movies about nonsense. Great. Tell me again how Iron Man is a metaphor.

  • Cuberly

    “When Ridley Scott’s sci-fi epic Blade Runner about a man who hunted down android, humanoid replicas came out in 1982, it became an instant classic.”

    Um, no. It was critically regarded as meh, lots of atmosphere and nothing else. Also, it didn’t do great box office on initial release. I really loathe hyperbolic throw-away editorial appraisals.

    It only became a cult-classic after it was released to video & DVD, but it’s still one of the best sci-fi movies to see in the theater if you ask me. Right up there with 2001. The visuals are still, incredible.

    • That_Looks_Delicious

      Your recollection is correct. One of the best sci-fi movies of all time for me was ‘The Andromeda Strain’, which hasn’t quite achieved the cult following of Blade Runner, 2001, The Fifth Element, Soylent Green, etc., but it made a big impression on me when I first saw it. I also thought it was the most truly science-y of the sci-fi films.

      • Cuberly

        OMG, Andromeda Strain scared the crap out of me as a kid. That scene where they slice that dudes arm and his blood, in powder form sifts out of it. GAH! Had nightmares for weeks.

        It is a classic. Another Robert Wise movie no less.

        I feel the same about the hippy dippy Silent Running. Loved it as a kid, but I saw it again, a few years ago, uh, it’s rather dated. Though the climate change message holds a LOT of relevance now, obviously.

        • Gregory Peterson

          “Eight seconds to spare. Hardly even exciting.”

        • EweTaw

          Re: Andromeda Strain. The descriptions of what states and postures they discovered the dead in the small desert town were very good. They really creeped me out. And the movie didn’t even begin to approach the bizarre and horror of the book.

    • EweTaw

      I liked the snake. 🙂

      • Cuberly

        Ha! That scene with Joanna Cassidy is one of the best in the movie.

        • EweTaw

          I reread Do Androids Dream of Electric Sheep two years ago and was terribly disappointed. The first issue was, being a major fan of Raymond Chandler, how poorly Phillip K. Dick’s attempt at Chandler’s pulp noir style just flopped around and too contrived. The second issue was being too jaded with the “cutting technology” of the book’s time. Stuff has developed way beyond the archaic attempts at communication and computer technology invented in the book. Although, the flying cars are still better than the ones we currently do not have. (growl and grumble). However, the art direction of the film and the absurd pre CG era techniques the cinematographers wen to creating the absorbing images of a LA dystopia (sometimes as many as 18 different exposures for the same strips of film) were/are stunning and beautiful. I like the original very much and have a vivid memory of turning to my friend once the credits had finished rolling and saying to one another “Want to sit through it again?” We sat through it two more times that day.

          • Cuberly

            I hear ya, I remember attempting the book twice and failed each time. It seemed ponderous to me. Many slighted the movie for veering so far away from the book but I think that’s what needed to happen. The movie took the ethereal elements and the Raymond Chandler elements and did an impressive job at bringing them together.

            Have always been a fan of Douglas Trumbull’s effects work. He did things with light that you just don’t see in other effects laden movies. How they married the effects shots to the live action segments is impressive as well. One of my favorite scenes is almost forgettable, where Deckard is in the flying cop car, it’s all gritty confined space but you see the other cop car following in the background behind him. It seemed so real.

          • Strepsi

            Yes, it’s maybe a handful of films whose adaptations improved upon the book.

            And Cuberly you’re right, I remember the reaction to the movie being meh to actively disliking the film noir aspects.

            I saw it in the movie theatre and LOVED it and did not find it ponderous at all, but – I suppose as a matter of mood or taste – I did find 2001 boring when I saw it.

          • EweTaw

            I was too loaded on Acid every time I saw 2001 to worry about being bored. Besides, Strauss. All that buoyant Strauss early in the film makes all the difference in the world.

          • greenmanTN

            I actually like the book. One of the concepts that stuck with me is that Deckard’s wife likes watching a TV show called “Buster Friendly and His Friendly Friends” which is a talk show that’s on 24 hours a day. Guests come on and do the talk-show smooze, look glamorous and witty, and talk about their current project.

            But Buster and all his guests are all replicants, they just perform the talk show schtick, there are no projects, and they are “famous” because the audience is told they are. It’s completely fake and empty, they aren’t real, and they are only famous for being famous. (Shades of the Kardashians.)

            That kind of gave me a gimlet-eyed view of talk shows and “fame,” and our own celebrities are every bit as artificial.

  • Cuberly

    OT: (Well, sorta, it’s still about sci-fi….bad bad sci-fi.)

    They’re doing a restoration of Turkish Star Wars. One of the worst of the worst movies ever made. If you haven’t seen it it’s pretty bizarre, and oddly watchable in it’s badness.

    To give you a taste.

    • Dramphooey

      Definitely better than the Phantom Menace.

    • The Return of Traxley

      Why does it look their budget was a dozen scratch-offs and a handful of couch change?

      • Cuberly

        Ha! The whole montage is indicative to the uh, talent level, the movie employs. The whole movie is wonderfully crazy. Supposedly it was a big money earner in Turkey at the time.

        • Strepsi

          The music is the Battlestar Galactica theme sped up, followed by Leia’s theme, followed by the Raiders of the Lost Ark theme! :-O

          • Cuberly

            The do the disco versions of the Star Wars and BG themes as well.

            The whole movie is a collage of every 80s action adventure & sci-fi movie made at the time.

            They have scenes where the lead characters are supposedly star-fighter pilots where they duck and bob about as Star Wars battle scenes play on a loop on a screen behind them. It’s pure bad bad bad movie magic.


            If interested. Maybe not watch the whole thing bit if you skip around you can get a feel for it.


  • Disqusdmnj

    Wait, this isn’t for “The Notebook 2”?

  • tomfromthenews

    The director of “Arrival”. Good. Hoping for a really good script.

    • I could not figure “Arrival” out. Others are saying what an intelligent wonderful movie! I just sat there and was in complete confusion, Also the music was very modern classical and with heavy strings – you knew how you were supposed to feel depending on how dark the music sounded. But it was good with cool octopus aliens!

      • tomfromthenews

        That’s OK, but just try not to rely on linear storytelling to figure it out. It definitely warrants a second viewing and an open mind.

  • pablo

    The original Blade Runner is a complete mess of a movie, which is why Scott released like 5 different “director’s cuts.” The only thing it had going for it was outstanding art direction and designs from Syd Mead.
    Well here’s hoping this movie is better than that that one. Oh, and better than Prometheus.

    • Cousin Bleh

      I blame Lindelof for Prometheus. And Scott for hiring Lindelof.

    • The Chinese are acting like adults. Perhaps they and Angela Merkel, whom should be re elected in 2017 (Germany has a proportional parliamentary system and is not going to put a neo fascist party in power despite hysterical reports to the contrary), can restrain him. Putin is going to do his best to weaken NATO and make sure his allies in Syria and Iran are left in power, but calmer heads will probably prevail and avert world war. Global warming is going to stay more of a problem for the world under President Trump.

  • djcoastermark

    I hope the soundtrack is as good as the first one.

  • BTW I saw La La Land starring Ryan Gosling and Emma Stone yesterday and it is excellent, I highly recommend it. It is an old fashioned romantic Hollywood bittersweet musical with tremendous dancing and visuals — Gosling is the song and dance man of a generation. Go see it. The opening number filmed on an LA freeway exit will knock your socks off. Best movie of the year so far.

    • Miji

      I’ll agree it’s a movie well worth your time; I really enjoyed it. However, (and maybe I’m just not a big enough movie musical fan) I thought the opening number on the freeway was corny AF and as I watched it was wondering what I had done. Fortunely, (for me at least) the rest of the movie has a very different feel.

      • LOL I have been accused of liking corny way too much as many who follow the schlock I frequently post here already know 🙂

          Sometimes corny is a good thing.
