Replicants vs Apes? Unplumbed possibilities for the franchises.

Putting that aside, doesnt look right at all. Why does a 1982 spinner look so much more futuristic than what appears to be a 2012 Dodge Charger driven by Ryan Gosling and his enourmous turtleneck.

I let out an audible groan when I saw Leto. I hope it's good but I'm not as excited for it as I was after seeing the teaser.

He didn't seem all that bad in it.

Not good. It has a made for TV aesthetic in its dialog and characters.

I expected to hear it start with:

"This week, on a very special Blade Runner.....will he find out if he is a replicant? Tune in and find out".

Good news - we'll definitely get an answer if he's a replicant or not, just as we've always wanted.

Which I imagine will go over well given all the good will Scott has been curating recently. I'd prefer they just left it ambiguous because I feel it's safer than saying once and for all (in a film at least) that yes "This is the way it is". Then again knowing the Blade Runner community they'd still debate it even with a definitive on screen answer.

I expect either way they address it there'll be a contingent insisting that he was replaced by a Replicant or the "real" Deckard between the two movies

Have they officially said which version this is a sequel to?

I guess we'll know when we get our "answer" (an answer, btw, to a "burning question" no one really has, as with the origins of the Alien which is now no longer alien at all thanks to Ridley's reliably reductive rationalism).

I can't imagine any scenario in which this isn't a sequel to the Final Cut.

Well said. There's a "gilligan"-esque betrayal in the needless rescuing of these myths from their islands.

Granted, even Scott himself bluntly said in the 25th Anniversary Edition in regards to this, 'If you don't get it, you're a moron.' 8-[

So ...
[Reveal] Spoiler:
The "We were being hunted" line by Deckard is the absolute confirmation, right?

[Reveal] Spoiler:
Not necessarily, they would still be hunted if just Rachael was a replicant and Deckard was a human blade runner aiding a fugitive replicant.

That said, I think it highly unlikely that the film isn't operating with Scott's interpretation presupposed.

Hans Zimmer is now scoring the film. Jóhann Jóhannsson is still aboard, the main title will be his composition.

Blade Runner 2049 has also escaped being watered down content wise to fit a PG-13 rating.

Bloody Disgusting wrote:
The MPAA stamped Blade Runner 2049 with the “R”-rating for “violence, some sexuality, nudity, and language.”


Nice to see studios having a little more faith in more adult ventures again.

The word has been quite awhile that this is going to be R. I've even heard that this is the biggest budget for an R film ever.

...and to be fair, I think with a few fairly insignificant cuts the original could have gotten by with a PG-13 rating.

Of course, that rating didn't exist at the time.

Of course. Taking it to PG, even when PG films were a bit more violent, still would have been a bridge too far.

Regardless I am glad that for this they did go for and earn the R rating, as long as it's done within the range of taste that that the first film adhered to.

The report going around is actually saying 163 minutes, but regardless it wouldn't be the first Blade Runner that needs more cuts.
