The official trailer for “Blade Runner 2049” has arrived, and it looks like the science-fiction sequel is going to be one of the best looking films of 2017. That shouldn’t come as too much of a surprise given the talent involved behind the camera. Not only is recent Oscar nominee Denis Villenueve in the director’s chair, but he’s also got the master Roger Deakins as cinematographer.
The duo have worked together on two previous efforts — “Prisoners” and “Sicario” — and both times Deakins ended up with an Oscar nomination for Best Cinematography. Will the third time be the charm? Could Deakins actually win his first Oscar? It’s obviously too early to tell, but damn if this trailer isn’t a jaw-dropping stunner.
