MOVIE NEWS – Great news for sci-fi and classic movie fans, Christmas has come early for all of you! Warner Bros. has just shown the first teaser trailer for Blade Runner 2049, and it’s simply breathtaking! We can get our first very first glimpse at Ryan Gosling as LAPD Officer K. and also the first look at old Harrison Ford‘s return as the Blade Runner agent, Rick Deckard. This short teaser is an announcement for the 2017 release, which will be released in theaters October 6.
And the word “teaser” is just fine.
We can hear Rick Deckard’s this narrative to set up the story.
“Replicants are like any other machine. They are either a benefit or a hazard. If they are a benefit, it’s not my problem.”
We can see Officer K wandering a desolate wasteland as he is looking for Deckard. And he finally finds him. Deckard is living in a luxurious home, and when they meet each other, suspicious, Rick confronts K. He pulls his gun. K is chill. He’s already seen a lot of bad things.
“I had your job once. I was good at it,” says Deckard.
‘Things were simpler than.’ Officer K replies.
According to the story, thirty years after the events of the first Blade Runner, a new blade runner, LAPD Officer K (Ryan Gosling), uncovers a long-buried secret that has the potential to throw what’s left of society into chaos. K’s discovery leads him on a quest to find Rick Deckard (Harrison Ford), a past LAPD blade runner who has been missing for 30 years.
Director Denis Villeneuve follows up this year’s Arrival with this new take on the Blade Runner legend. The film is based on characters from the novel Do Androids Dream of Electric Sheep? By Philip K. Dick. The new story comes from Hampton Fancher, with a screenplay by Hampton Fancher and Michael Green. Originally it was Ridley Scott again, who was supposed was to direct the sequel, but he decided to make Alien: Covenant instead – he remained the producer of the movie.
The cast consists of Ana de Armas, Sylvia Hoeks, Robin Wright, Mackenzie Davis, Carla Juri, Lennie James, with Dave Bautista and Jared Leto.
The original movie explored the connection between flesh and blood humans and their synthetic counterparts called Replicants. Ford played as Replicant hunter Rick Deckard. There’s also a strong belief among fans, which he’s a replicant himself. Though it has been that, an answer to this question probably won’t be revealed in the new movie. The website Fandango spoke with Ryan Gosling for some more information on the film. And he offered a big hint that Ford won’t play much in the movie, even though we do get his first appearance in this teaser.
“I can say that we shot for many months before Harrison Ford arrived, and obviously there was a lot of anticipation as to when he would show up and how that would be, and it was just a relief. The second he got to set, he just rolled up his sleeves, and we all just got to work. It was a real great pleasure to get to work with him.”
