So yeah, this movie is gonna something, isn't it?
If nothing else, Blade Runner 2049 is going to be the most visually dazzling film of the year. This looks like an all-timer in the visual department, and I'm sincerely hoping that Roger Deakins picks up an Oscar win for his cinematography- as is pretty much every other fanboy on the internet. As for everything else in this trailer, it's clear that Warner Bros. and Villeneuve are sticking with the mysterious vibe that dominated the first teaser in December. It's been a little while since I saw the original Blade Runner, but I remember being absolutely blown away by it. I fell head-over-heels in love with its energy, its atmosphere, the noir vibe that blended sci-fi with brutal crime elements. If Villeneuve can nail the ambiance of the Blade Runner universe, then he's halfway there already. I'm not sure what the story exactly entails, but it seems to involve Gosling's Officer K on a search for Ford's Deckard, while simultaneously being pursued by Jared Leto's creepy antagonist and an assassin portrayed by Sylvia Hoeks. Still, I'm sure that the script is good enough to warrant a return to this stunning sci-fi world. The action looks incredible, the music by composer Johann Johannsson is tremendous, and every shot looks like a painting. Villeneuve hasn't missed yet, and I have a feeling that he's going to deliver one of the most spectacular blockbusters in recent memory.
Blade Runner 2049 opens on October 6.
