Have You Seen the New Blade Runner 2049 Trailer…?

…cause I was not very happy with it.

Let me give you some perspective here. I’m Deven B. and y’all may or may not know this, but I was alive way back in 1982 when the original Blade Runner came out. Back then Harrison Ford was the hottest leading man going in Hollywood. Empire Strikes Back, Raiders of the Lost Ark were both only a year old. Blade Runner would be released, to be followed by Return of the Jedi (1983) and The Temple of Doom (1984).

Well, it looks like they’re applying the time-tested formula to the new (un-needed) sequel expected out later this year. This one takes place 30 years after the classic film and stars Ryan Gosling and so many other big names that I don’t want to waste my time listing them. Here’s the link to the IMDB cast page.

Watch the trailer above and let me know what you think. For me, I wasn’t impressed. So far the latest big name H-wood productions have let us down severely. See Ghost in the Shell.

I hope I’m wrong, folks. But it looks like this is going to be bad, which is too bad. The original is still one of the best sci-fi movies ever made.

I think I’ll go watch it right now…
