Blade Runner 2049 Short Film Shows Off The New Replicants

In the latest trailer for Ridley Scott's spin on Blade Runner, we get to see what the latest line of replicants looks like.

Rather than being a traditional trailer, the latest Blade Runner 2049 short is a scene from before the events of the new movie.

Jared Leto, starring as Niander Wallace, is making a pitch to a small group of executives about the future of replicants. Replicant technology has been banned, but Wallace is adamant that replicants are the only hope for humanity's survival, and he makes his point in a fairly brutal manner.

Slowly but surely, I'm starting to gain a little faith in Blade Runner 2049. The movie hits local cinemas on October 5.

    Scott's not directing (thank goodness, his recent films have been disappointing at best) - Denis Villeneuve is and he is on a roll, haven't seen a bad film from him, and they've all been visually incredible.

    I hope i like it. I want to like it. But i feel it cant possibly stand up to the critical scrutiny i will apply to it. The original is the closest thing i have to religion. Far and away my favourite piece of art. Movies, music, games - nothing will ever knock it off #1 spot for me.

    On second thought I probably just shouldn't see this new one. I dont want to be that bitter jerk who pans what is probably going to be a really competent piece of entertainment.
