The official trailer for Blade Runner 2049 was released today. Feel free to press play, watch the trailer.
Dave Bautista said in this interview that he thinks that Blade Runner 2049 will be better than Blade Runner and “answer some questions”.
Well, if you’d ask me the questions are what made Blade Runner such a masterpiece, the questions are what the audience should try to answer themselves. So, another question is if we want answers? My answer to that is no. I’d like to keep the questions and keep them unanswered.
