Blade Runner 2049 Teaser Trailer
First glimpse of Harrison Ford returning as Rick Deckard!
“I used to do your job, I was good at it.” It’s here so soon, Christmas has come early here at Finding Ford HQ as the first teaser for Blade Runner 2049 landed yesterday! I made no secret of my equal levels of excitement and trepidation in the last blog on Blade Runner, but this trailer gives fresh hope. Firstly the look of the film appears perfect, the opening shot of what turns out to be Ryan Gosling is quite simply stunning. We then follow his tentative journey though a desert wasteland (anyone recognise the head?) into a derelict building where it is confirmed that he is clearly the new Blade Runner by the man himself; “I used to do your job, I was good at it.” To which Gosling responds; “Things were simpler then.” Why were they simpler? What’s happened in the past 35 years? Why is Deckard in hiding?
The brief snippets of music also hold a lot of promise as they carry some of Vangelis’ original score with a modern twist, the film itself would appear to be a meeting of the old and the new so this is probably as it should be.
Check it out for yourself, and let me know your thoughts!

Ryan Gosling describes Harrison Ford as “A cool motherf*cker.”
I also had to share this with you, it’s great when colleagues of Harrison Ford confirm exactly why he’s their hero and mine, check out the video below of Ryan Gosling describing him on Jimmy Kimmel earlier this month as a “cool motherf*cker! Gosling is also interviewed in this month’s GQ Magazine and recounts the tale of being punched in the face by The Ford, and his typically hilarious reaction.
