Six weeks and counting until Denis Villeneuve‘s sequel to the much loved Blade Runner, Blade Runner 2049 arrives in cinemas nationwide. Today Sony Pictures have released a new extended International TV Spot revealing new gorgeous footage. The new promo also teases Jared Leto spine chilling villain who is making his own Replicant army, why?
Our hopes this one deliver the goods and not harm the legacy Ridley Scott‘s Blade Runner slowly built. The visual palette we expect in Villeneuve movies (Sicario, Arrival) is clearly on show again, sumptuously mouth watering. The trailers so far look to have done well to tease us without giving away too much of the movie plot away. A lot of the footage is extended versions of already seen footage which also gives us a new aspect of the upcoming movie.
What this TV Spot does do is offer a little more info Leto’s Niander Wallace who took over the reigns of Tyrell Corporation(replicant company from the first movie).Eerily his vision of the rise of AI resulting in the end of the human population, something many people now worry could happen reality. So will we finally find out if Deckard is a Replicant? What this new promo does, is suggest Dave Bautista‘s character maybe one, potentially playing a similar character played by actor Brion James in the original movie?
Thirty years after the events of the first film, a new blade runner, LAPD Officer K (Ryan Gosling), unearths a long-buried secret that has the potential to plunge what’s left of society into chaos. K’s discovery leads him on a quest to find Rick Deckard (Harrison Ford), a former LAPD blade runner who has been missing for 30 years.
