Listen if Blade Runner 2049 isn’t at the top of your most anticipated movies for this year you just don’t enjoy good sci-fi. There’s nothing wrong with that but your taste stinks. I know people are hesitant when an older movie gets a sequel years later – hell I just wrote about how I’m worried Super Troopers 2 won’t be able to live up to the humor of the first one the other day. BUT Villeneuve hasn’t made a single bad film yet and has said in multiple interviews that the reason he took this job was for two reasons 1. the original was the movie that inspired his love of sci-fi and 2. he loved the script and idea but saw how easily it would be for someone else to mess it up and he wanted to do it justice.
I’m not going to spoil what’s in the short film but it gives a good introduction to Leto’s character who is expected to be the main antagonist in the film. So check it out and we’re supposed to get 2 more that’ll help bridge the gap between the first film and the new one before it comes out October 7th so I’ll be sure to keep y’all updated.
Let me know what you think of the short film or what you’re hoping is in the movie in the comments or on twitter @dgood826
