Warner Brothers on Monday released a brand new trailer for the highly anticipated sequel to the 1982 sci-fi movie classic.
Ridley Scott’s original Blade Runner movie was released in 1982 and earned $33 million at the box office on a budget of $28 million, not what you would consider a success even for 1982. The movie it self was not well received by critics, but a year later it won the prestigious Hugo Award for Best Dramatic Presentation. Over time the movie has earned cult status.
Denis Villeneuve who was the man behind the camera on last years “Arrival” and starring Ryan Gosling and Harrison Ford reprising his role as Rick Deckard directs 2049.
Visually the movie looks absolutely beautiful, but the bigger question will be is the story as compelling as it looks? If it is Blade Runner 2049 could become one of the best movies of the year.
Blade Runner 2049 opens October 6, 2017.
Director: Denis Villeneuve
Cast: Ryan Gosling, Harrison Ford, Mackenzie Davis, Jared Leto, Dave Bautista, Carla Juri, Barkhad Abdi, and Robin Wright
