Sony released an worldwide trailer for the upcoming sequel to the sci-fi classic, and it's got way more in the way of plot exposition than the atmospheric and relatively vague looks we've seen so far.
Sony have just released the latest new footage from upcoming film Blade Runner 2049 - and it still looks pretty damn bleak.
So far, the trailers for Blade Runner 2049 have had us asking two questions: 1) Why has Harrison Ford's Rick Deckard been in hiding for 30 years? and 2) Why does Ryan Gosling's Officer K need his help for a unsafe mission?
There's no doubt that, these days, studio marketing teams seem to get a little confused as to what constitutes as a trailer, teaser, television spot, and so on.
Investigation Continues After San Carlos-Based Plane Crashes in Oregon
An employee who works at the San Carlos Airport said the small plane took off from the Peninsula city earlier in the day. The San Carlos, California based aircraft was travelling to Madras, Oregon for Monday's solar eclipse.
"You do not know what pain is yet", intones Jared Leto in full bad-guy mode as the movie's apparent villain Niander Wallace.
Always as neat and technically stunning (the photography of Roger Deakins earned him perhaps finally an Oscar), Blade Runner 2049 appears here through a timeline a lot more intense, chock-full of suits, bastons, explosions and action, of any kind, very far away from the tempo haunting in the film a neo-noir in which Harrison Ford had 35 years ago androids and existential questions.
Set 30 years on from the original film, Blade Runner 2049 tacks onto the story of Los Angeles Police Department Officer K, a new character who uncovers a hidden secret that has the ability to send society into a state of mayhem.
The film will open in theaters on October 6, 2017.
