We’ve been waiting for a sequel to Blade Runner for quite sometime and now the official trailer for Blade Runner 2049 is here and we’re stoked!
Blade Runner 2049 has been a long time coming. In fact, many fans have been waiting since 1982 to a sequel to their favorite movie. But as the years came and went, a sequel looked further and further from actually happening.
That is, until now. 35 years later, we’re finally getting Blade Runner 2049. The original film was set in 2019, meaning that this new addition to the Blade Runner series will be set 30 years after we last saw Rick Deckard and Rachael.
So now the biggest thing is that we finally have an answer to the question of whether or not Rick Deckard is a replicant or not. Spoiler alert: he isn’t. How do we know this? Well, Harrison Ford is 74 so unless he was a rare replicant that could age, he definitely is just a normal dude.
But watch the trailer and decide for yourself how excited you are for it.
Pretty amazing right? And this is just the first official trailer for the movie! If it’s anything like Wonder Woman and every other movie coming out, we’re going to get a million more trailers and special looks at this new take on Blade Runner.
The thing is: fans of the original can be assuaged while watching this trailer. All our fears of what this movie could possibly be are gone because it is a perfect trailer that seems to capture the tone of Blade Runner perfectly. And really, that’s all we could ask for.
Blade Runner 2049 hits theaters this October and we’re excited. What’s your favorite part of the trailer? Sound off in the comments below and tell us what you’re looking forward to!
