At least it's not a remake or a reboot.
What. The. Fuck.
i am still waiting for the buckaroo banzai sequel. they even promised it in the movie.
Really, really, really bad idea.

Horrifically bad.

Deckard finds a crystal skull and communes with inter-dimensional aliens, activates a portal to another dimension and he and Rachael escape and Deckard becomes associate dean at Marshall College.
At the end of the movie, Phil Dick will wake up from a dexedrine-fueled bender and shake his head, "What a nightmare..."
I can't wait to see the cyberpunk refrigerator Deckard hides in when the nuke goes off. I bet it'll have dusty orange LEDs all over it.
Maybe Rutger Hauer returns, only in his "Hobo With A Shotgun" guise....they can call it "Robo-Hobo."

This is the kind of joke I make.
And it couldn't come a minute too soon, Jar-Jar's got bills to.

I read the studio's pushing for a PG-13 rating on that Alien prequel, as if the emphasis on 3D wasn't portentous enough.
3: Yes!! Maybe they'll bring back John Bigbooty... Bigboote, that is.
Maybe some day there will be film versions of China Mieville's stuff. Perdido Street Station had some fine monsters in it.
This is awesome! The first movie was soooooooooo boring.
I hope the new one has Smurfs in it!
As long as Ridley Scott is making the movie, I could care less if its a sequel, prequel or even re-boot. The guy is alright. The Alien Origin movie (Prometheus) looks like it might kick ass.

I refuse to watch anything that Lucas or Spielberg touch.
@8- I think that joke may be the best thing to come of this.
Isn't it funny how in Bladerunner, you have FTL and engineered humans, but no i-phone. And who puts a projector in the couch? Still, a great movie.
No. No. No. No. I reject this idea. No.
@3 and 10,

Apparently neither of you were paying attention. The sequel to Buckaroo Banzai was already made. A little piece of cinema history called "Big Trouble in Little China" is what that line in the credits became:…
@15, isn't funny. One of the major points of Blade Runner is that we have technology and life that just doesn't make sense and is contradictory to itself.
"For there are no new ideas. There are only new ways of making them felt." ~ Audre Lorde

I don't have any particular interest in a remake or readaptation of the original film, but if Scott believes there's a story to be told by returning to that universe, I'm fine with that. He's done enough consistantly good work in his life that I'm willing to grant the benefit of the doubt.
More Edward James Olmos origami, please.
And I realize the hypocracy of complaining about somebody else's curmudgeonliness, but don't you ever get tired of knee-jerk hatred? I see the value of "I told you so," but you have to weigh that against all the times you told them and you were flat wrong.

Let's go ahead and wait until there's, say...a script, actors, maybe even a movie before dumping on the movie that doesn't exist yet.

I'm looking forward to Prometheus, but if they make it PG-13 I'm going to cry. Whatever happened to the allure of "R" rated movies? Sneaking into them is what being under 13 is all about.
Here Ridley, I just made your sequel for you:

It is now 2049. Retired Blade Runner Gaff (played of course by EJO) is brought out of retirement to track down an escaped Nexus3D. When his new partner hands him a piece of paper he exclaims "I AM GETTING TO OLD TO FOLD THIS SHIT"
@22 -

"Cowabunga, dude!" ~ Michelangelo di Lodovico Buonarroti Simoni
@24 ... nicely done!!
@23 - Totally agree, but movies didn't used to cost $250M to make. With that much risk, studios can't afford to alienate (wha wahhhh) anyone. Not the way I'd prefer to go about it, but this seems to be the case here.
Blade Runner is one of the best Sci-Fi movies ever made, hands down. It will be very, very difficult to follow. But I'm willing to give Ridley Scott the benefit of the doubt.
There are no "new ideas". We're still re-doing Rober Louis Stevenson and Jules Verne for Christ's sake. Oh yeah, speaking of Christ - God, too.
Movies = Mind Control: Suggestion and suppositons to bend the future by molding mass thought. Think about what the mass media is actually doing. Movies aren't just movies.

Please wait...
