BLADE RUNNER 2 Pre Release - Page 10

post #451 of 1173

If a woman pulled even a fraction of the shit Leto got away with on Suicide Squad, she'd never work again. 

 

Jared Leto is our cultural obsession with Method Acting taken to its natural end-stage, its festering conclusion. He's the Donald Trump of Method Acting. 

post #452 of 1173

Actors I've known say that Method is for bitches.

 

I've never done anything outside of improv and workshops in film school, so I can't attest to that.

post #453 of 1173

There is a method to acting/channeling/whathaveyou. It's whatever tools work for you to craft your character and stay in the moment.

 

What Leto does is just for the sake of being pretentious.

I'm still not convinced that that much shit happened when making Suicide Squad. It reeks of just a bunch of made up shit to get people talking..

Viola Davis, who is not one to bullshit, made it clear that he was doing at least some gross shit, and she was having none of it.

I'm sure that more than NOTHING happened..

I like what Leto was doing in this trailer. Ford seems very present. Bautista throws a guy through a wall, as he should. Looks visually interesting and Coruscant is nice and smoggy still. I spotted an Atari logo. No idea what the story is but clearly the stakes are high. Soundtrack is very Vangelis-y. Good trailer.

Can't speaking for prep or off set shenanigans, but it's obvious to me Leto did absolutely NOTHING while shooting.

Meh.

 

But better than the second trailer.

 

Teaser was still the best.

 

I just can't with this rapid cutting style for a Blade Runner movie. I know that is the trailer editing but the glimpses they're showing of story are making me very wary.

 

Opening fight scene in this trailer was cool, though, even if it commits the whole "the tension is literally BOILING" cliche.

post #460 of 1173
For the life of me I can't tell what angle they're going to take. It almost seems like they're setting up a weird as hell "The people you think are people are actually REPLICANTS and the Replicants are human slaves!!!!!" twist. Which would be..... something.

Really, all I want is for the script to not feel like it was written by Kurtzman or Orci. No magic blood, no magic parents, no magic offspring. I frankly want "You're different" and "You're special" to be stricken from screenwriting for at least 50 years.
post #461 of 1173
What I got out of the trailer when I tried to connect the dots was that the secret of long-lived replicants died with Tyrell, Deckard used to run an underground railroad to shuttle that generation of slaves to safety, and Ryan Gosling's character is tasked with tracking Deckard and the old escaped replicants when he has his own crisis of conscience. But we'll see.

That sounds cool. I'd watch that happily.

The wall/war/special lines are leading me to a place of Kurtzmanphobia.
post #463 of 1173

 I found it odd that this trailer gives the movie an epic vibe and I don't know if that is fitting for a Blade Runner movie. The first is a simple plot, Deckard has to locate and kill the replicants; while the replicants simply want to live longer. The characters and visuals then elevated it. On one hand I don't know if the whole war is coming will work in this movie, but then again at this movie won't be a rehash of the first one. I still want to see this.

Agreed on that. It's weird seeing Blade Runner billed in the context of "Earth-Shaking Ramifications!!!!"

But I was one of those (few?) who dug Kevin J Anderson's sequel books, and they eventually dig into an interesting kind of twist - that over time, as they colonize places father from Earth, humans stop being fertile and start dying younger... while Replicants start bearing children and outliving their 4 year lifespans. I could go for something like that.

I had a few of those books. I regret selling them now.

post #466 of 1173

What if the film doesn't take place in 2049, but many centuries later? What if man and machine have long since merged to survive environmental degradation? What if everyone is a replicant? What if that truth got out?

What if the entire universe was a lie and what we thought was real was only a succession of still images accompanied by an audio track?
post #468 of 1173

Don't know if it's been mentioned yet, but that opening fight with Bautista is straight out of an early draft of the original.

 

Deckard shows up at a house out in the middle of nowhere, interrogates a guy while a kettle is boiling, and ends up shooting him. Then he pulls the guy's jaw off and it has a serial number on the inside.

 

That was the original opening of Blade Runner for much of the development process, but I think it was removed because they wanted to make the replicants less obviously tech and more ambiguously organic.

post #469 of 1173

Also, trailer looks cool but Blade Runner is maybe my second favorite movie and I'm a little wary. 2049 can't hurt the original, but if not for Villeneuve I might avoid this out of principle. 

post #470 of 1173

Updated Edition coming Sept 12th.

Damn, gotta get that.

The original is one of my favorite behind the scenes books

Yeah, it's a classic along with the Brazil and Munchausen books.

 

I'm not going to lie, I'm very excited about this movie being an excuse to buy some officially licensed BR-original merchandise. I hope they just blanket the world with stuff.

post #473 of 1173

So if this is set 35 years after Blade Runner, and it's set in 2049, then we'll have offworld colonies and human robots by... 2014?

post #474 of 1173
Yes, 35 + 2019 = 2049.
post #475 of 1173

Hunh. You'd think they'd quietly retcon that.

post #476 of 1173

But 35+1982=2017!

post #477 of 1173
The first movie is set in 2019. I don't know where you weirdos keep getting 35 from.
post #478 of 1173

I'm thinking we might get a re-release of the Blade Runner adventure game on GOG to coincide with 2049.

That would be something. I've owned the physical copy forever but never tried to install it. Everyone speaks very highly of this game.

I think at this point we can assume Blade Runner exists in an alternate timeline than our own.
post #481 of 1173
Do people honestly think that when a movie is set in "the future" that said future is a documentary-style reenactment of what it will actually be like in that year? Do people really think that?

Not that I'm unable to accept that and suspend my disbelief accordingly....I also wouldn't be opposed to the new movie having a twist in it that suggests the events of both films actually take place much much further into the future than originally suggested.

But even if it doesn't....that makes no difference..
post #483 of 1173
Why does it matter what year it takes place in? Spoiler: It doesn't.
post #484 of 1173
You're right. It doesn't..
post #485 of 1173
My God, I actually convinced someone of something. This is a first.

Bollocks.
post #488 of 1173

Wait, Blade Runner does take place in our timeline, they're just portraying what will happen in 2019 after the Tim Burton Dumbo is released.

post #489 of 1173
Fuck everything.

I read a groan-worthy quote from Villeneuve about how he likes science fiction, not science fantasy. He only likes to make movies about things that could really happen!

I guess it's like the distinction between SF books and HARD SF books, the latter of which is exclusively about describing the deck layouts of space navy capital ships for thousands of pages.

It might be the same people arguing that the ferry scene in Spider-man: Homecoming is grounded and realistic!

post #495 of 1173
I don't need realism in a movie. I just need stuff to ring true within the context of the movie at hand. It's like special FX. Special FX don't have to look REAL to look GOOD. As long as whatever is done, said or shown contributes to a cohesive whole then it's A-ok with me..

Dick Donner and Verisimilitude.

God, nerds who make that distinction between sf and HARD sf are the worst. 

post #498 of 1173

Hans Zimmer and Benjamin Wallfisch are coming on board to help Johann Johansson complete the movie's score...

 

https://www.theverge.com/2017/7/30/16065872/hans-zimmer-blade-runner-2049-compose-score-denis-villeneuve

 

I think it's a good fit for Zimmer's sensibilities, and he certainly can get to a Vangelis-y sound if he wants.  I'm more excited that Wallfisch is involved, because his CURE FOR WELLNESS score is one of this year's best so far.

post #499 of 1173

People forget that Zimmer is a master with a synth. His early Hollywood work - Rain ManBlack Rain, and Pacific Heights jump out here - is incredible and quite complex. Fuck, even Days of Thunder has a score much better than the actual film, and Thelma & Louise is a great balance of synth and blues.

 

This is welcome news, although I've seen some worried folk on another board.

 

Blade Runner 2049 is far and beyond my most anticipated movie all year, more than anything before it even.

Isn't it kind of a problem that a film composer has to have two other composers come help?
