    General trailer discussion

    I thought we could use a thread for discussing upcoming movies.



    Here's yet another remake. Did this one really need to be made? The original is a classic, it stands on its own, and I don't know that more is wanted or needed.

    But at least they kept the voice-over!

    I guess Deckard wasn't a replicant after all.

    Anyway to keep with the title of the thread rather than get hung up on one trailer, this is what I'm looking forward to:

    Doesn't look like it's going to be a remake to me.

    Exactly. This is not a remake, it is a sequel set 30 years after the original film.

    Ridley Scott has said the movie won't answer that question either way. I guess the default assumption is that he is not a replicant, as he is still alive, but there is a chance that he is a replicant with no expiration date.

    Looks pretty damn good from that trailer, hopefully it lives up to the promise.

    Another sequel, this one is a bit closer to the release date of the original. Looks awesome, but the second movie in any movie series is always suspect:


    (View video on YouTube)

    James Gunn has also said he would like to do a Rocket and Groot movie, which would be just as awesome as Guardians of the Galaxy, but probably significantly more crazy/weird.

    I was not at all in favor of a Blade Runner remake, but I'm fine with an attempt at a sequel. A remake had zero chance of not sucking compared to the original and there's no reason for a remake unless it's better.

    A sequel might only be half as good as the original and still be better than 99% of sci-fi.

    Hopefully, they won't just for the low-hanging member-berries like Force Awakens did. I enjoyed it in the theatre, but rewatching it on TV recently showed it had very little substance beyond nostalgia, especially after the first 30 minutes.

    Blade Runner's awesomeness was in large part its atmosphere and emotional tone, which could be replicated (pun intended). It will be harder to have characters as interesting as Roy and Pris without them being derivative. But I'm open. I didn't watch the trailer and won't. I know I will watch the movie and prefer to know nothing going into it, just like I have avoided reading or watching anything about Rogue One
