Blade Runner 2049 Seems To Be In Good Hands

When the announcement was made that the sequel to Blade Runner is not going to be directed by Ridley Scott because of his commitment to the Alien franchise, the announcement was met with a lot of disappointment. For one thing, Ridley Scott is the one that was responsible for the film being a hit in later years. Also, Ridley Scott had the visual style that complimented Blade Runner. However, there has been good news. This news is that Denis Villeneuve has been chosen to helm the project. Villeneuve is known as a great director with a good visual style that could complement the world of Blade Runner.

 

However, there have been further announcements that the sequel is not really going to look like its predecessor. Fortunately, there have been concept images, and even set photos that show that they are doing everything they can to keep the spirit of Blade Runner with the sequel. Then when the teaser dropped, it has shown that they have managed to keep the spirit of the original. While there are some scenes that are in completely different environments, they still have the same feel of the old predecessor.

 

Even though the teaser of the new Blade Runner film was really short, it showed a lot for people to be excited about for the new movie. Whether or not the film is going to match its predecessor remains to be seen. At the same time, it does not really matter as long as the story is good. Blade Runner from 1982 was a major technological achievement in many respects. To try to top it might not be a good idea. However, the director of this film is turning out to be a good match for this film. Also, the director of the original, Ridley Scott, is staying on as the executive producer. Therefore, he has some kind of say in the creative aspects of the story that is going to be released on the big screen.

 

New Blade Runner 2049 Trailer to Debut With Alien Covenant

Alien and Blade Runner are two franchises that have been started by Ridley Scott. They are also considered Sci-Fi classics. One interesting thing to note is that both franchises have new installments coming out this year. Another thing, that is exciting to hear is that the new installment in the Alien franchise, Alien Covenant, is going to have a new trailer for Blade Runner 2049 attached to it. This one is going to of course show more footage of the film. Therefore, people are going to get to see how this film truly looks and get a better idea of the plot of the film.

 

Whether the plot is going to be revealed in the trailer or not remains to be seen. However, it is common for films to have their plots revealed in their trailers and even have big twists spoiled. The trailer for the original Blade Runner movie has had its plot revealed in the trailer. Of course details about the plot of the old film are left to discussion. The teaser only shows a couple of scenes including a scene with Ryan Goslings character walking through the wasteland which oddly captures the spirit of the old Blade Runner.

 

Then there is the Han Solo-esque appearance of Harrison Ford as Deckard wearing rather “normal” looking clothes. A lot of people talked about Harrison’s Ford wardrobe. It almost seems like he is breaking the fourth wall with his fashion statement. Either way, it is going to be an exciting day when Blade Runner 2049 is released to theaters.

 

There are some concerns about the film. One concern is how they are going to handle the mystery of who Deckard is. One thing that has been said is that the director of the new film is going to take care of this mystery. It is possible that they are going to deal with different aspects of the whole concept of replicants and open up the world of Blade Runner.

 

Blade Runner 2049: The Curious Sequel Arrives

CinemaCon has revealed some new footage from the upcoming Blade Runner sequel. Harrison Ford is present, which is no surprise. The appearance of Jared Leto is a bit surprising. Honestly, nothing is more surprising than the fact the film was made in the first place.

 

One of the strangest sequels slated to arrive in 2017 is Blade Runner 2049. The original 1982 sci-fi classic was a famous box office failure when released. The film was considered dark and depressing. People viewed science-fiction through the lens of Star Trek and Star Wars. The grim world of Philip K. Dick’s original novel “Do Androids Dream of Electric Sheep?” translated nicely into the film Blade Runner, but only serious science-fiction fans realized the brilliance. And there were too few of them in 1982.

 

The film has achieved a strong cult following over the ensuing years. The original director’s cut was released, a version that is a great improvement on the poorly-edited version that first debuted. Regardless, Blade Runner was not going to be a hit in 1982. The time was not right.

 

The success of the new Star Wars franchise likely played a major role in building up studio confidence in a Blade Runner sequel. Ironically, the success of Star Wars and The Empire Strikes Back led studios to put a lot of faith in Harrison Ford back when Blade Runner was released. The director, Ridley Scott, was coming off the massive success of Alien. Things didn’t work out as expected.

 

The long-awaited sequel will be facing a much more enthusiastic audience. Science-fiction in all its forms is very popular. Putting Jared Leto in the film, truth be told, is going to sell tickets.

 

How many tickets the film will eventually sell is still a bit of a question mark. Likely, the film will be a success. Can Blade Runner 2049 develop a massive cult following? That would be a tall order.

 

Ryan Gosling’s Experience With Blade Runner 2049

Ryan Gosling has a bit to say for his experience on working on Blade Runner 2049 and working with his co-stars, particularly Harrison Ford. One thing that he has to say is that working on Blade Runner 2049 is like working on 3 different movies. For one thing, it has to cover a lot of ground which includes telling a story that justifies the 35 year wait. There is also the story which apparently involves a fight scene with Harrison Ford’s character, Deckard in which he punches Ryan Gosling in the face. One thing Ryan has to say is that Harrison Ford always brings some fun and professionalism to the work.

 

This reveal from Ryan Gosling suggests that there is something going on in the story among the two leads. Perhaps they are not on the same side. However, there are tons of films which feature two protagonists getting into a physical fight with each other. This does nothing to give away the story. All it does show is that there is going to be some action scenes in this one. This is what the original Blade Runner didn’t have a lot of. However, it is not the lack of action scenes that have made Blade Runner suffer initially on release, it is that it was really slow moving.

 

Ridley Scott has also been seen with the crew. Of course he is offering his insight. One issue that Blade Runner had was that it was ahead of its time. Ridley has said before that it is not good to be ahead of time. However, one good thing about the first Blade Runner is that it has aged very well. The effects and the story hold up well even 30 years later with the newly released final cut that corrects a lot of the glaring issues with the film.

 

As of right now, they are aiming for an October 2017 release. Therefore, they are well under way with the project.

 

Blade Runner 2049 Is Dennis Villeneuve’s Biggest Challenge

Dennis Villeneuve is showing himself to be a very capable filmmaker. His previous films have not only shown themselves to have good storytelling, but also good visuals. This is something that has made him a good match for the upcoming Blade Runner project, Blade Runner 2049. For one thing, it is most likely going to have some really interesting visual shots. At the same time, Dennis did say that the film is not going to look just like the predecessors. Of course, people have mixed feelings about this. However, it is important to consider that the film takes place 30 years after the first one as the current title suggests. Therefore, there will be some differences in the environment like there is in the real world with the advancement of technology.

 

One of the challenges that the new director is faced with is having to live up to the predecessor which is probably impossible. For one thing, the predecessor was not only considered one of the most iconic films in its genre, but also an influence on the genre as a whole. It has also influenced cinematography as a whole. Films like The Matrix, Minority Report, Batman Begins, Dark City, and a few others have taken a bit of influence from the classic. All that could be done with this sequel is to expand on the world of the first film.

 

Blade Runner was not met with a lot of approval when it was first released. However, it has found its audience on home video. Then it has gained even more attention when there was the suggestion that there are more than 5 versions of the film. Five different versions of Blade Runner including the workprint has been released on DVD and Blu-ray in an ultimate collector’s set.

 

There have been many attempts to bring Blade Runner 2 to the big screen. Ridley Scott has been in talks to direct it. However, he has finally stepped down to continue on in the Alien franchise.
