New Trailer For ‘Blade Runner 2049’ Is Pretty Epic

Just released this morning…a new teaser trailer for Blade Runner 2049:

Being a big sci-fi movie fan, it was a revelation when I came across the original Blade Runner (89% on Rotten Tomatoes) as a young man.  When it was first released, it was not accepted well by critics and the public alike. Perhaps it’s too complicated.  Perhaps the original version lacked enough narrative (they fixed it with a redux).   Perhaps it was a bit ahead of it’s time — as the idea of artificial intelligence is NOW inching closer and closer to reality.  That only took about 40 years.   That’s why it took me so long to get around to it.

But it is a beautiful film — both visually and audibly.  If you haven’t seen it — you’ve got plenty of time between now and October.  Stream it.  — [eric]
