In two weeks the verdict on “Blade Runner 2049” will be in when the reviews roll out, but until then, we’re trying to keep our high expectations reasonable about the sequel to one of the all time great sci-fi films. But it’s hard to stay reasonable, especially when you see the passion put into the movie in these new behind-the-scenes featurettes.
Vice has the most substantive fare, serving up two generous videos about the making of “Blade Runner 2049,” and the legacy of the original movie. Clearly, everyone wanted to make their own mark in the sequel, while maintaining reverence for Ridley Scott’s milestone movie. Tacking onto that are two more quick featurettes which see the cast doing their best to talk about the movie, even though they can’t really talk about the movie.
“Blade Runner 2049” opens on October 6th.
