A new trailer for Denis Villeneuve’s Blade Runner 2049 has arrived with loads of new footage and it’s even edging towards revealing what the plotline will be.
As with every other piece of new footage from the Blade Runner sequel, the most striking thing is Roger Deakins’ incredible cinematography. My word.
It’s also nice to get a better look at the character played by Dave Bautista, while Sylvia Hoeks continues to look impressively badass as the muscle of Jared Leto’s Neander Wallace (Leto’s definitely made a choice with the voice he’s using), and every glimpse of Robin Wright’s police captain of the future is just an absolute joy.
It’s also good to see just how well Gosling seems to be fitting into this universe. You can’t be an investigator in Blade Runner without wearing a big coat and getting seven shades of shit kicked out of you, and we can’t wait to see him matched with Harrison Ford. Can Villeneuve continue his incredible run of form following Arrival, Prisoners and Enemy? We’ll have to wait and see…
