New Blade Runner 2049 trailer.

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=dZOaI_Fn5o4

Not a fan of this trailer. Firstly, why the hell does this trailer start with a 5 second trailer for itself?

I’m not averse to action at all, but the action scenes presented in the trailer seem fundamentally un-Blade Runner. I think that’s partly due to the way the trailer was edited. This trailer is trying to market the movie as an action film for mainstream audiences, so it follows the mainstream trailer formula. It’s always a landscape shot or two, someone talking (sometimes to another person), action clips with overbearing drums, repeat ad infinitum.

The cinematography is gorgeous and the soundtrack is killer, though.

The 2003 Clone Wars was garbage

Agreed. But hands down the most disappointing aspect of it was that they basically confirmed that Deckard was a replicant, and I DESPISE that theory.

"When Scott was asked about the possibility of a sequel in October 2012, he said, ‘It’s not a rumor—it’s happening. With Harrison Ford? I don’t know yet. Is he too old? Well, he was a Nexus-6 so we don’t know how long he can live. And that’s all I’m going to say at this stage.’"

The general consensus is that Deckard being a Replicant diminishes the story of the original film, and though I have never much cared for the Blade Runner universe, I agree. It seems like Ridley Scott has entered the phase where his interpretation is the right and valid one, even at the expense of the basic theme and continuity of his franchises. Sounds like another director I know…

Exactly. Everything works better in the Blade Runner when he’s a human which is why the final cut minus the unicorn dream is the perfect cut of the movie for me.

This might be in poor taste. Very poor taste, actually. Who thought this was a good idea?

Isn’t Sheen a 9/11 truther? I seem to remember hearing his name tied to conspiracy theory nonsense.

He is, which means either this movie’s a 9/11 truther propaganda POS in disguise or Sheen’s need for money outweighs his commitment to his beliefs, neither of which would take me by surprise.

Holy shit what a coincidence, I had no clue about that film but have been reading heaps on 9/11 the past two days (I wasn’t alive at the time so I had no clue their were even four planes hijacked). Pretty weird.

Not enough people read the EU.

Funny trailer, but I’m not convinced that James Franco can pull off the accent. In his defense, nobody could pull it off perfectly.

I’m convinced.

This is – and I say this with absolutely no hyperbole whatsoever – the best trailer to come out of the 21st century thus far.
