Looks good.

So glad it's Gosling. I think he's perfect for the movie.

Anybody else get the vibe that Gosling is a Replicant?

I did...and I know they're going to milk that theory for all its worth after the years (decades) of debate on the original.

After Ghost in the Shell I was kind of worried this would go with the too-obvious CG look as well, glad it didn't.

Watched the trailer and went: "it looks and feels like Blade Runner." That's a good thing.

I've been getting that vibe from Gosling long before this film was even announced.

Re: Blade Runner 2049 (2017, D: Villeneuve) S: Ford, Gosling

I wish Ford wasn't in this, but I'm a fan of Ryan Gosling. So far it looks interesting. They even kept Atari in there!

It's weird to see the visuals in this Blade Runner sequel, coming right after the Ghost In The Shell movie, which was trying very hard to copy the visuals of the original Blade Runner. Who will do it better in 2017?

In a way it looks too clean. Like it's grungy, but it's a polished grunge. We'll see.

The first one felt grungy because of all the rain (especially soaking Deckard's heavy wool coat :shudders: ). This one looks like it takes place in more of a dusty, dry wasteland with additional elements in the dirty city.

I think it looks great (with the exception of Jared Leto) and is probably my most anticipated movie of the year!

Re: Blade Runner 2049 (2017, D: Villeneuve) S: Ford, Gosling

I'm torn here.

Blade Runner is one of my favorite movies. I don't think it needs a sequel. And if it gets a sequel, then chances are it will suck just because you can't improve on perfection.

But everything I've seen in these trailers just looks and feels right.

Re: Blade Runner 2049 (2017, D: Villeneuve) S: Ford, Gosling

I am still trying to figure out what the story is. I know Scott isn't directing, but it sure feels like it. "Story? We don't need no fucking story. Just look at the pretty pictures!"

My next hairbrained theory: humanity is extinct and all "people" are replicants who don't know it.

Re: Blade Runner 2049 (2017, D: Villeneuve) S: Ford, Gosling

Looks like it might be pretty good (can't figure out what it's supposed to be about from the trailer(s) but it looks & sounds cool), the only thing I don't really care for is the title, sounds too much like Seaquest 2032 or Battlestar Galactica 1980 (there's another one but I can't remember it right now).

They're trying to be secretive of the actual story, which is why we're getting this piecemeal reveal of plot points.

The original Blade Runner's story is pretty threadbare, in terms of plot. Where it succeeded was in the imagery, tone, characterization, and philosophical contemplation.

Re: Blade Runner 2049 (2017, D: Villeneuve) S: Ford, Gosling

Someone on Youtube already theorized what it could be about, since according to them, they're pretty much telegraphing what it really is about.

Spoiler:
The next phase of replicant future is that human and replicant have begun to breed. Ryan Gosling's character may be Deckard and Rachel's son, etc.

I get not wanting to give things away (and I am critical of marketing campaigns that do just that) but a bone would be nice. Right now I am actually inclined to stay away since I've been screwed over by Scott twice on Aliens. I need to know there is a story.

I disagree with your assessment of the original story ... it was a future noir mystery about a retired detective/bounty hunter coming back to crack an "unsolvable" case about rogue machines returning to Earth and going on a killing spree. The tone, characterizations, philosophical contemplations, and the visuals were parts that enriched the story. Scott tried to fuck with that in favor of visuals, but it succeeded in the long run.

I'll just say ... I am worried because we have seen this Ridley Scott strategy work so well in the Aliens franchise. I'm hoping Villenueve wins out.
