With each new look at Blade Runner 2049, my expectations for this sequel 35 years in the making keep getting higher.
Along with more stunning futuristic cityscapes, both advanced and abandoned, the coolest sneak peaks this second trailer provides are the clips of Dave Bautista being a deadly serious polar opposite of Drax from Guardians of the Galaxy. Here, it looks as if he’s a replicant.
With director Denis Villeneuve (Arrival, Sicario) at the helm, I’m more excited by this movie’s prospects than if the hit-and-miss original director Ridley Scott had returned (he’s still on as an Executive Producer, a perfect slot for him this time around).
Starring Ryan Gosling, Harrison Ford, Robin Wright, Jared Leto, and more, Blade Runner 2049 opens on October 6, 2017.
