It’s been an exciting few days on the film media side of the fence with the resounding response to the opening of the “Guardians Of The Galaxy” Vol. 2 film and during the viewing that I did on Monday morning, I saw the short teaser trailer for the upcoming “Blade Runner 2049” film which is of course the next chapter from the “Blade Runner” movie that came out way back in 1982. When I got home I saw that a full trailer was online care of the Warner Brothers Pictures and I am happy to share it with you now. Check it out.
The Premise: A new blade runner, LAPD Officer K (Ryan Gosling), discovers a dark secret that might bring an end to humanity. K’s discovery leads him to find Rick Deckard (Harrison Ford), a former blade runner who disappeared thirty years ago. (thanks Wiki).

PiercingMetal Thoughts: This might surprise you a little bit if you know anything about my personal interest in so many different Science Fiction franchises, but I have never, ever, watched “Blade Runner” straight through and when I say this my longest time friends shake their respective heads saying “but how???” – Truth be told I don’t know how that ended up happening but it just did. I guess I got lost somewhere along the lines with the galaxies far, far, away and by boldly going where no one has gone before stuff. This admission finds me now on a mission to finally sit and enjoy this film and catch up to what everyone loved about it. I liked what I saw in the trailer and with today’s special effects the playing field is rather limitless. So what do you readers think about this trailer and the idea of a sequel to the classic Science Fiction story? Let me know in the comments section below.
