It’s been 35 years since Ridley Scott and Harrison Ford took us on an unforgettable journey into dystopian Los Angelas. It’s easily one of the best movie adaptations of a book in history, and with no book to base its story from, many wondered how Blade Runner 2049 could follow up one of the best sci-fi movies in the history of ever.

Well, if this new TrailerTown is any indication, it looks to follow-up 1982’s Blade Runner beautifully…..and we mean beautifully. Jesus Christ, did you watch that TrailerTown? We want to hang stills of it on our walls. It’s chock-full of action, intrigue and, what appears to be, Ryan Gosling, acting the shit out of his role as Officer K.

But don’t take our words for it, watch the Blade Runner 2049 TrailerTown for yourself and then read out Top 5 thoughts about it below:

Top 5 Things About the Blade Runner 2049 Trailer

  1. The Look – Let’s just get this out of the way early, Blade Runner 2049 looks BEAUTIFUL. It should come as no surprise to any fan of Denis Villeneuve, or anyone who’s seen Arrival, Sicario, Enemy, or Prisoners. The guy just has a knack for enveloping you into the beauty of any world he sets his story in, and setting his story in a dystopian future has given him a lot of ground to play in.
  2. Ryan Gosling – It’s a tough job to follow in Harrison Ford’s Blade Runner footsteps, but from this TrailerTown, it looks like ‘ole Gosling is up for the task. In this future, it would appear that replicants are not only allowed on earth but to be ridiculously good-looking police officers as well, as we see Ryan bust through some walls, show no emotion, show a shit ton of emotion, and track down Harrison Ford in…..Arizona? Anyhoo, we can’t wait to see him in the role!
  3. The Universe – One of the best things about Blade Runner was the fully-realized world in which the characters lived. From the different “regions” and colors in this preview, it looks like Villeneuve is taking that a step further and truly looking into what “35 years later” would look and feel like in this world.
  4. Blade Runner Connections – The best sequels honor their source material while heightening the experience. We loved all the touches in this TrailerTown that prove how closely they are sticking to their source material. From the huge Atari sign, to flying cars, to the replicants, to (obviously) Harrison Ford, we are already planning a viewing party to watch the movies back-to-back.
  5. The Action – No Blade Runner movie is complete without future action and death. Ryan Gosling gets all bloody, people run through walls, cars fly off cliffs, and there are guns galore. 2049 appears to be a very action-packed year.

What did you think of the Blade Runner 2049 TrailerTown? Will you be stepping out into the inevitable rain to watch Ryan and Harrison get their groove on?
