'Blade Runner 2049' Official Trailer is HERE!

"Thirty years after the events of the first film, a new blade runner, LAPD Officer K (Ryan Gosling), unearths a long-buried secret that has the potential to plunge what’s left of society in chaos. K’s discovery leads him on a quest to find Rick Deckard (Harrison Ford), a former LAPD blade runner who has been missing for 30 years."

The good news is not only Villeneuve behind the camera - Hampton Fancher, who wrote the original Blade Runner, and Michael Green (Logan), have collaborated on the screenplay. But, that's not the best part. Quite possibly the greatest cinematographer of my time, Roger Deakins, is photographing the film. Can the anticipation get any greater?
“Blade Runner 2049” will be released on October 6th.

On a more personal note, I lived through the Montreal film scene when Villeneuve, Jean-Marc Vallee, and an 18-year-old Xavier Dolan among others, revolutionized French-Canadian cinema for the 21st century, and in the process paved their way to the Hollywood studio system. It was a very exciting time, but it was always Villeneuve that I kept an especially close eye on. It was the images Villeneuve conveyed with his camera, the powerful impact they had on me, especially in his three Quebecois opuses "Maesltrom," "Polytechnique" and "Incendies." It's been incredible seeing his ascension to the American filmmaking elite. You don't know how many film fans in they twenties have told me he is their favorite filmmaker, in a way, he's surpassed Nolan with that age group, the 18-29. Just look at the IMDB ratings of "Prisoners," "Sicario" and "Arrival" for further proof.
