Well, in just over a week I’ll finally be able to see the sequel to Blade Runner that I’m still not fully convinced should exist (but it does). Everything I’ve seen so far looks intriguing (and I’m so curious to see what Jared Leto’s character is doing), but what worries me is there are still so many ways this film could turn out to be terrible.
For instance, a make or break moment for me is going to be how they resolve the fates of Deckard and Rachael (since their last scene in the Final Cut is abruptly cut off as they get into the elevator to leave). I NEED to know what happened, and if they don’t resolve it to my satisfaction, I’m going to be upset.
Also, I’ve gathered from the trailers that a pretty big twist is coming, and for their sakes I hope it’s worth my time. Maybe I’m being too harsh, but as I said before, I’m still not convinced that this film should exist in the first place (because some films just don’t need sequels). Of course, if this film DOES end up ruining the overall story, I can always ignore it (just like I ignore Alien 3 and Alien: Resurrection).
Are you looking forward to Blade Runner 2049? Will you be seeing it next week? Let me know your reasons why or why not in the comments below.
