Blade Runner 2049 released their first teaser trailer today. Don’t expect to learn much about the film, but you will get to hear lots of sirens and see Harrison Ford point a gun.
Taking place 30 years after the original Blade Runner, the trailer shows that things have not gone well for the world. Ryan Gosling walks amongst a ton of dust. I mean, really, it’s too much dust. Like the air is just dust now and we’ve all taken that as an acceptable way to live.
Anyway, Ryan Gosling walks into Harrison Ford’s hiding place as we find out that Gosling, too is a Blade Runner and the future has become very complicated.
That’s all we get to see for now, probably cause the movie doesn’t come out til October! We can only hope that this sequel is more along the lines of The Force Awakens and less like Indiana Jones and the Kingdom of the Crystal Skull.
Also, the original film took place in 2019. We’re almost there and we still don’t have light-up umbrellas. Fuck Hoverboards and flying cars, we can at least get light-up umbrellas, come on!
