BLADE RUNNER 2049 Teaser: K Finds Deckard

Probably one of the most anticipated films of 2017, Blade Runner 2049 has a lot to live up to, given the cult status of its predecessor. But with star Harrison Ford returning as Deckard, Ryan Gosling in the lead (as apparently Ford is not in the film for more than a few scenes), and Quebecois director Denis Villeneuve at the helm, hopes are high. We finally have an outline of the plot:

Thirty years after the events of the first film, a new blade runner, LAPD Officer K (Gosling), unearths a long-buried secret that has the potential to plunge what’s left of society into chaos. K’s discovery leads him on a quest to find Rick Deckard (Ford), a former LAPD blade runner who has been missing for these 30 years.

The teaser really is just that; we see K (Gosling) on a planet that looks like oiur concept of Mars, finding some abandoned statue, and a house which apperars to be Deckard's hideaway. Is it a colony? Or the ravages or Earth? Is Rachel still with Deckard, and will the film finally answer the most pressing question, is the detective actually a replicant himself? In the book it's clear that he isn't, but the screenplay is original in that is takes place after Philip K. Dick's story, so it will be interesting to see the writers' interpretation.

I'll admit to some skepticism, but I'll keep faith in Villeneuve. Check out the teaser below.

    Tom Hardy should have been the Balde Runner. Or even McConaughey is better. Strange. Ryan Gosling is NOT a charismatic actor. More like a sleepy hippy head. I would have liked a more macho character for Deckard like the Man of Steel :) or even Statham is better than chicken Gosling. Even Hemsworth is more endurable.

    Could have agreed with Bradley Cooper.
    Denzel Washington also I could have imagined in the role. Wha' ever.. Best was the first film. Nothing will Trump that!

  • wabalicious

    I'm very interested. Is that Korean signage on the front of the building he walks into?

  • Pierce Conran

    Yes, backwards characters say 'luck'

  • Which makes sense, because the rug inside the front doors reads "Vintage Casino". And for what it's worth, it's obviously the same location as the one in which he meets Deckard because the windows in the doors all have that semi-circular design.

  • ManateeAdvocate

    All right, all right. I'll see it.

  • cjohnston

    ..Commonnnnn...... You KNOW You were Interested even before this tease..

    *...That was Probably the BEST minute and 46seconds of goosebumps I've EVER had..

  • ManateeAdvocate

    'dat director tho'

  • Mehliens

    Denis can be considered a grandmaster of cinema, his trajectory is flawless and he has only directed outstanding cinematic gems so far. Scott producing isnt a bad sign either, just look at Stoker which is another masterpiece his name is attached to.

  • ManateeAdvocate

    Truth. Stoker was indeed a masterpiece.

    ?????

    I GOTTA say - you're comment here perplexes (me), befuddles; and - kinda annoys me (thru NO fault of your own either...).
    ----- I Hope(!) i'm misunderstanding your' sentiment..
    ---
    If I may be so forthright.
    ...Denis IS an AWESOME director; Enemy is Brilliant and Arrival is a Masterpiece..... ...and visa versa.
    ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~
    again though - ...........say it ain't so....
    I Am misunderstanding the impetus for your remark, Right.(?)

  • ManateeAdvocate

    Oh, I was just using youthful, jackass internet speak. Villeneuve is indeed an absolute master of his craft. His name alone has my attention.

  • cjohnston

    No worries or concerns at All about that.

    ...on a separate note; TWO (more) film recommendations.. then i'm on my way for now..
    .The Survivalist is PHENOMINAL.. and STELLAR.
    it's MUCH in the same vein as Open Grave, Borgman, HeadHunters, and A Lonely Place To Die (ALL of which = one HECK of an Intensely, Insanely Goode time.) . *i imagine i've mentioned just a couple of these just a few times though in the past.

    Imdb and trailer for theSurvivalist, vie youtube, below..

    and https://www.youtube.com/watch?...

    Also. MIGHT not be everyone's cup of tea - but i thoroughly enjoyed Passengers.
    **color me strange though, on that last one.

  • ManateeAdvocate

    Open Grave is currently in my "to watch" queue. Borgman looks great. Headhunters is in my cart. I already own A Lonely Place to die. Yes, you've mentioned these before.

    Holy shit does The Survivalist look amazing. My type of film for sure. Sadly, it's not available in Region 1. Hopefully some distributor will fix that soon. Must see. Thanks for bringing it to my attention.

    Sorry friend, but with a gun to my head I wouldn't watch Passengers. Pandorum is more my type of "passengers" film if you get me.

  • cjohnston

    OK.
    ~ ~
    (tar and feather me; but don't shoot the messenger if I've already gabbled about this one...)..
    ~
    The Duelist. (folks here at ScreenAnarchy have had this in their crosshairs, and (turns out) for Damn *apologies* Goode reason..
    ---
    it's a slow-burner - but it's brawnily, Intelligently, and bloodily Brilliant and Beautiful imho. INSANE attention to detail, this.
    If you like Dead Man Down (..goode one.) you'll (probably) FLIP for this one.

  • cjohnston

    YUP.!
    ~
    (Passenger's) is one that's an undeniable polarizer --- much like The Island, Sucker Punch, MofS, Donald Trump, and the like. ....you'd (generically speaking) probably either LOVE it, or you'd HATE it.

  • kidlazarus

    and, speaking of love/hate... Villeneuve with Enemy. Personally, I love it. It could be viewed as an abstract, unofficial Blade Runner sequel. Fingers crossed BR 2049 is something special.

  • cjohnston

    I'd personally never thought of that with Enemy. (I'm over the moon 'bout the film; but that's probably common knowledge round here.. ha... lol)
    ~
    Another one that DID occur to me though which seems to be magnificently polarizing is High-Rise. some love it -~- others detest it.
    ...personally - (again al la Enemy); I'm rather over the moon for the thing myself..
