A couple of months ago, dope-as-fuck auteur Denis Villeneuve said he would be interested in making a Dune movie. Well, now is his chance. Maybe. You see, Legendary Entertainment has landed the movie rights to the sci-fi classic.
FUCKKK. I. Am. All. About. That. Denis Villeneuve. LIFE.
I don’t know if I’ve made this clear (I’ve made this clear), but I’m fully on-board with the Blade Runner sequel. It’s got talent up to its chin (starting with director Villeneuve and cinematographer Roger Deakins), and if it sucks? No harm, no foul. I’ll easily separate it from my love for the original. Said sequel has dropped some official concept art, and yes, it’s gorgeous.
I had no fucking idea that Denis Villeneuve had another movie dropping before Blade Runner 2. This is bonus! One of my favorite current directors bringing science-fiction heat before he brings science-fiction heat. Villeneuve’s movie has gotten itself a new title, and an official release date.
MORE LIKE HALT AND CATCH REPLICANTS, RIGHT? Please, please forgive me. My brain is withered, and all my former-future-children laugh at me from my belly.
What the fuck? Sicario was sneaky excellent last year, and while it was a dour and miserable trek, I fucking loved it. That said, the idea of a sequel is, uh, odd?
Robin Wright. Nice. Blade Runner. Nice. Double-Plus-Nice.
Apparently it’s a day of release date announcements for sequels I’m sweating. First John Wick: The Wick and the Dead gets a date, now Blade Runner 2.
