The trailer for Denis Villeneuve's BLADE RUNNER 2049 hit earlier this week and proved to be one of the best teasers we've seen this year. We were given just enough to spin off some theorize, plus a taste of that classic Vangelis theme. If that wasn't enough, Entertainment Weekly has some new images that you can check out below. Furthermore, there's also some interview tidbits in which Villeneuve confirms the R-rating for the film, as well as some other goodies. Take a look!

Denis Villeneuve on BLADE RUNNER 2049's rating and CGI use:

My producers are finding it fun to remind me that it will be one of the most expensive R-rated independent feature films ever made. I can count on my fingers the amount of times we put a green screen on set. Most of the movie was done on camera, me and Roger Deakins worked very hard to do it that way. My actors were not walking on green screens all day long. CGI is a strong tool for backgrounds and extensions but what is around the actors needs to be as real as possible. When I watch a movie that’s mostly CGI, I’m disengaged.

Regarding another sci-fi film or a sequel to BLADE RUNNER 2049:

I’m doomed, I love sci-fi. I have two more ideas now that I would love to do. [And] Blade Runner could go on... we’ll see how this one goes.

Worries that BLADE RUNNER 2049 might not be the thought-provoking sequel the original deserves have been placated for the time being. Fans have been cautiously optimistic up until now, but with the release of the first trailer and these new images and tidbits, I'd say there's no stopping the hype train now. It's going to be a long wait until October, but at least we have something to look forward to!

BLADE RUNNER 2049 will open in theaters on October 6, 2017.

1. Let me start by saying this is how you make teaser trailers, it gives you just enough and doesn't ruin the movie.
2. This director is making a huge name for himself.
3. This has such an amazing feel to it, ryan and ford look amazin.
4. This is something we all been looking forward too, seems to me they took their time and are giving us something that after all these years is worth the wait and feels like time never went by. I wasn't even born when the first came out and it did take me a

I wasn't even born when the first came out and it did take me a while to get use to and like but once I did this has become on my list of top sci-fi films.

Is it in Ford's contract to wear a t-shirt the entire film?

Love everything we've been given so far besides Ford's seeming desire to wear a t-shirt --especially in the magazine cover when they're obviously outside.

Aww right...you ready?

K is hunting Deckard. Deckard is the last surviving Blade Runner. K keeps a journal, a search diary, of his thoughts during the hunt and his confirmed motivator, with locations, facts, sayings, etc. He tracks Deckard down, finally. K is a replicant who fell in love with a human, like Rachel did. His girlfriend died. K wants to commit suicide because he can not live without the loss but cannot self-terminate. He needs Deckard to take him out, but Deckard is not Deckard,

K is hunting Deckard. Deckard is the last surviving Blade Runner. K keeps a journal, a search diary, of his thoughts during the hunt and his confirmed motivator, with locations, facts, sayings, etc. He tracks Deckard down, finally. K is a replicant who fell in love with a human, like Rachel did. His girlfriend died. K wants to commit suicide because he can not live without the loss but cannot self-terminate. He needs Deckard to take him out, but Deckard is not Deckard, he's the human the "Deckard" from the first BR was based on, so he has vowed to never kill a replicant. In his anger K kills Deckard, but it turns out Deckard WAS the original one from BR, a replicant who malfunctioned after falling for Rachel, and the only one actually capable of ending K's life. So K now can not die, an immortal malfunctioned unit himself, forced to live without his girlfriend or the one guy who can end his pain and the knowledge that he's responsible for HER death too. Turns out he actually killed her by accident. He has to live with this now. Love was the trigger to survival and prolonging life, and Deckard, K and Rachel were the only ones who really felt it. A recording goes off in K's head, an implanted fail-safe designed to keep replicants motivated.
"It's too bad they won't live..." paraphrases the famous quote via a note K writes in his journal after hearing it in his head, "but then again who does?" He remembers Deckard heard this once, and has a vision of a man saying the quote aloud...a replicant.
K wanders off, hopeful. His search continues...

Were you worried?

I wasn't worried. Blade Runner is one of the most adult sci-fi classics out there. I don't think that they would get many more people in the audience if they didn't make it R-rated, because it's not explicitly an action movie, it's a cerebral exploration of what it means to be human.
