Blade Runner 2049 has a new trailer that gives us even more bloody shots of Ryan Gosling staring into the dying orange sun than we could have ever asked for.
The film picks up several decades into the future, and centers on Gosling’s character, Officer K, trying to track down Harrison Ford’s Agent Deckard, the role he’ll reprise from the 1982 original film, as Earth teeters on the verge of collapse. Blade Runner 2049 is directed by Denis Villeneuve, who’s previously known for such thrillers as Arrival and Sicario.
In the trailer, we see Gosling, Ford, Jared Leto, and Robin Wright looking grim as they attempt to save humanity from certain doom. Sadly, we’ll have to wait until October 6 to find out if they do. But check out the new clip below:
Let’s get the obvious ones out of the way first: The 39 Steps, because trains and chasing a MacGuffin piece of information and the moody moors of Scotland. Then there’s that straight-up Blade Runner sequence in the Shanghai skyscrapers and mirrors and oh man, the neon. Then a guy falls from the hundredth floor or whatever, so the new James Bond movie is also like Die Hard.
The new James Bond movie is mostly like a mix of Batman Begins andThe Dark Knight and The Dark Knight Rises, actually, with one part where a subway train crashes like toward the end of Speed. Remember, when Speed had the train part at the end? Additionally, the end is like Apocalypse Now, pretty much.
You know what else this movie is like? Other James Bond movies. The similarities are endless: guy named Bond, komodo dragon pit, etc. There was the rogue former MI6 agent, just like in GoldenEye—and that was only six Bond movies ago! Man, if there’s one thing you can count on in a Bond movie, it’s that Bond you Bond Bond Bondily Bond, that’s for Bond. “The name’s Bond: Bond Bond.”
