Get a Fresh Glimpse of the World of Blade Runner 2049 in This New Footage

June 22, 2017
Denis Villeneuve's SF sequel is almost upon us.

Ah, the familiar mix of anticipation and trepidation that accompanies the approach of a sequel to a classic. Denis Villeneuve is certainly no slouch, but Ridley Scott’s Blade Runner is one of the greatest films of all time, and certainly the best sci-fi offering the screen has ever seen (you can make an argument for 2001: A Space Odyssey if you like. You’re still wrong, though). The prospect of walking in its shadow must be a daunting one.

Still, we have hope, and this new footage, a mix of BTS palaver and some truly striking images from the film itself, only adds to it. Everyone involved seems to know what a monumental task they’ve set themselves, and even Old Man Ford seems happy to be back in Blade Runner’s dark future.

Blade Runner 2049 hits cinemas on October 5, 2017.
