With Blade Runner 2049 set for release this Friday, Screen Junkies has turned to Ridley Scott’s original sci-fi classic Blade Runner for the latest instalment of Honest Trailers; check it out below…
In 1982, audiences knew Harrison Ford as the charming, rogue Hans Solo or the charming, rogue Indiana Jones. Now, watch him ditch the whole charming act in the grumpiest Harrison Ford performance since…well, ANYTIME he’s forced to promote a movie. But this ain’t your Daddy’s bright and shiny Sci-Fi, this one has rain and cigs and hookers and stuff.
Enjoy this story that sees so clearly into the future predicting our modern anxieties about genetic engineering, corporate ownership and Ridley Scott’s Unicorn festish. It may not have done well at the box office but it broke the all-time record for the number of film geeks insisting it’s genius.
