This Blade Runner 2049 trailer takes you back to the world Ridley Scott created in 1982, and that huge Atari logo? I’m in.
We’ve been silent for a couple of days on The Unheard Nerd but it’s time to catch up on, or revisit, the official ‘Blade Runner 2049’ trailer because… holy balls that Atari logo looks amazing!
Sure, it’s the retro gamer in me that’s come gushing out, but the imagery of this trailer is faithful to Ridley Scott’s vision for his 1982 film is based on the science fiction novel ‘Do Androids Dream of Electric Sheep’ written by Philip K. Dick.
‘Blade Runner’ gave Harrison Ford a straight role between adventures ‘nerf herding’ around as Han Solo in Star Wars. Ford played Deckard, a law enforcer charged with hunting down rogue replicants. Leaving much open to the viewer’s imagination to work out the film remains one of the all -time sci-fi classic movies and, thanks to Scott’s forward thinking and flair for visual flair, holds up to this day.
Harrison Ford teams up with Ryan Gosling (Officer K) as the titular Blade Runners of past and present whilst Jared Leto (Suicide Squad) and Dave Bautista (Guardians of the Galaxy) also feature. Fans of the first film will also be pleased to note that Edward James Olmos (Battlestar Galactica) is cast once more as Gaff.
Denis Villeneuve whose stock rose last year thanks to the success of his sci-fi epic ‘Arrival’ directs whilst Ridley Scott executive produces.
‘Blade Runner 2049’ hits cinemas in most regions (including the U.K. and North America) on October 6th. Other regions should check IMDB for release dates.
