First look at Blade Runner 2049!

Remember, these are all clones. Keep up, OK?

Maybe because that’s exactly what happened to the Indiana Jones series?

Crystal Skull was an abomination, made at a time when someone also thought it would be cool to do Rocky & Rambo sequels.

O_O

And don’t even get me started on Prometheus and how I have completely lost faith in Ridley Scott…

Let’s not equate Ryan Gosling with Shia LeBeouf. I’m not saying Gosling is the world’s greatest actor, but he’s hardly Shia LeBeouf.

Maybe they’re going to do Phil Resch and the android police station. Who knows? Maybe Wilbur Mercer will finally show up.

Is he River Phoenix?

I’m hoping Ridley Scott has been too busy making a second Alien-reboot movie to mess too much with this one.

I see the cast of Alien: Covenant includes Danny McBride and James Franco… soo, comedy? There’s also a “re-write” credit on the screenplay, surely a good sign?

Does it have Rutger Hauer in it? No? ‘Ik rust mijn kaas.’

Kind of wondering if Rachael is going to make an appearance. She was never programmed/fitted for obsolescence, right?

I really love the look of his films, but lately the stories he is green lighting are just bad…

Now we know Decker isn’t a replicant. They didn’t age; they just seized up like an engine without oil.

unless of course it’s just a new version of the same model…

Kinda cruel going the Brother Cavil route.

Liking the soundtrack. Has the eerie Vangelis vibe sweep.

All I can think is that it’s going to be so sad to watch Decker get impaled to make room for younger characters.

Deckard is a replicant.

It was left ambiguous in the original release (the dreaded voiceover version), but suggested with all the subtlety of a boot to the head in all subsequent versions. What remained in doubt was whether Deckard and Rachael had the same strictly limited lifespan as Roy and the others. I guess we have the answer, at least as far as Deckard is concerned.

Depends on whether you think the Director’s cut is the canonical version or you accept the tacked on happy ending voiceover from the theatrical version.
