    Jóhann Jóhannsson is doing the music, who also scored Arrival.

    If Deckard’s a robot why does he look old?

    Replicants aren’t robots though, they’re some kind of hand-wavy ‘synthetic humans’ aren’t they? The point of the <nerd>Voight-Kampff test</nerd> is to tell them apart, which would be very easy if they were robots.

    And she’s playing a robot herself in Ghost in The Shell. Prodigious talent.

    Hmmmmmm. Bit more explodey than I might have liked, but it’s a trailer. The switch from vangelis mwommmmm mwommmmm noises to Standard Action Film Drums was jarring… But it looks amazing.

    Watched the new trailer a few minutes ago, and I’m much more optimistic about this than Alien: Covenant after seeing the trailers for that.

    The trailer certainly lacks the tension and atmosphere of the original, and if they can’t get it in the trailer hard to believe they will get it in the film.

    Has anyone here ever seen the original trailer for Bladerunner? Does it convey the tension and atmosphere of the original?
    I’d suggest not, because the original film was pretty much a flop, ignored by most cinema goers, only with hindsight has it become this iconic visionary film.
    From Rotten Tomatoes:
    “A blend of science fiction and noir detective fiction, Blade Runner (1982) was a box office and critical bust upon its initial exhibition, but its unique postmodern production design became hugely influential within the sci-fi genre, and the film gained a significant cult following that increased its stature. Harrison Ford stars as Rick Deckard, a retired cop in Los Angeles circa 2019. L.A. has become a pan-cultural dystopia of corporate advertising, pollution and flying automobiles, as well as replicants, human-like androids with short life spans built by the Tyrell Corporation for use in dangerous off-world colonization. Deckard’s former job in the police department was as a talented blade runner, a euphemism for detectives that hunt down and assassinate rogue replicants. Called before his one-time superior (M. Emmett Walsh), Deckard is forced back into active duty. A quartet of replicants led by Roy Batty (Rutger Hauer) has escaped and headed to Earth, killing several humans in the process. After meeting with the eccentric Eldon Tyrell (Joe Turkel), creator of the replicants, Deckard finds and eliminates Zhora (Joanna Cassidy), one of his targets. Attacked by another replicant, Leon (Brion James), Deckard is about to be killed when he’s saved by Rachael (Sean Young), Tyrell’s assistant and a replicant who’s unaware of her true nature. In the meantime, Batty and his replicant pleasure model lover, Pris (Darryl Hannah) use a dying inventor, J.F. Sebastian (William Sanderson) to get close to Tyrell and murder him. Deckard tracks the pair to Sebastian’s, where a bloody and violent final confrontation between Deckard and Batty takes place on a skyscraper rooftop high above the city. In 1992, Ridley Scott released a popular director’s cut that removed Deckard’s narration, added a dream sequence, and excised a happy ending imposed by the results of test screenings; these legendary behind-the-scenes battles were chronicled in a 1996 tome, Future Noir: The Making of Blade Runner by Paul M. Sammon. ~ Karl Williams, Rovi”
    Hindsight, etc…

    Bladerunner was not a well received film and basically a flop. The video and later the Dvd market made the film a classic. The making of the film was beset with problems so considering its birth its amazing it is regarded the classic it is.

    This looks like it could be ok as long as you don’t get too shirty about it pissing on the original. It’ll be nice to see Spinners in action again.

    (I’m thinking that’s Rachel too, otherwise why hide her face. The background to to room also looks similar to her memories from the original)

    Sounds like Vangelis are in

    Has he got a clone?

    I saw the original at the cinema when it first came out, I was only 16 (!) and a huge science fiction fan (still am!) – I remember coming out of e cinema stunned by the visuals, but a bit baffled by the plot, subsequent viewings on video, before it really grew on me. Hope the sequel is at least ok.

    Standard Action Film Drums – they sure are bollocks. Just needed that standard vadooomp bass noise that is in every single trailer for full cliche effect.

    It does look promising.

    As others have said the original was huge flop that became a cult film.

    Well, no, you don’t have to, but you do seem to be rather missing the point of the question in the context of comments being made about the trailer for the new film.

    I’ve not been to the cinema in well over ten years but this has to be a good reason to return to the pictures for some popcorn.

    Before I watch that,

    Is it actually a trailer, or is it the entire film on fast-forward?

    Interesting to see the Atari logo back.
    That second trailer was a bit more interesting – All they really had to do to suck me in was show me they understood the sleezy, grimy feel of the original. There were a couple of bits in there that looked promising, but no direct hit.

    On that original trailer, I love that TV screen covered in graffiti at 1:38.

    It definitely included something that I wished I’d never seen, but it doesn’t feel too sequential.

    I liked the Pan Am logo.

    Watched it a couple of times now, and the continuity with the first film seems to be good, the ‘things fall down, go BOOM’ issue that some were complaining about does appear to be consistent with the storyline, in the suggestion that there’s an impending conflict that could lead to an escalation to full-on war.
    Looking better and better.

    Blimey – first reactions have made me get excited against my best intentions.

    In get ready mode,I watched the original again the other night.
    Some of it really doesn’t age well,but hey,it was ground breaking in 1982 and still worth watching for Rutger Hauer alone.

    Booked for the IMAX in October – must not read reviews or follow STW threads!

    Oh god, most of the reviews seem good, that’s probably the worst scenario,now I will end up watching it and be disappointed. If they had been crap, like they should be, I could have quite happily ignored it.
