The Latest Footage From ‘Blade Runner 2049’ Teases A Continuation Of Jared Leto’s On-Screen Craziness

Denis Villeneuve’s take on Blade Runner is making plenty of folks happy at Cinemacon in Las Vegas. Not only did it allow Sony Motion Picture Group chairman Tom Rothman to take a few swipes at Netflix about people not wanting to go to the theater, but it also gave Ryan Gosling a chance to show up — never a bad thing. He had nothing but good things to say about the film and the decision to give the film more practical effects according to Variety:

“Every location was real,” said Gosling. “Every set was there…It was a fully functioning, living, breathing world.”

The studio also debuted some new footage from the film at the event and it seems like we might be in for another long summer of Jared Leto stories from on set:

The new footage showed more of Harrison Ford’s Rick Deckard and Gosling’s Officer Q, as well as a creepy look at Jared Leto, playing a manufacturer of replicants with a daddy complex. In one shot, Leto lovingly caresses a naked android, who appears to have been doused in amniotic fluid…

The footage, which also included shots of a bloodied, haunted-looking Gosling and de Armas as a skittish replicant who appears to have captured his heart, received loud applause.

Daddy complex? Naked androids? Amniotic fluid? Sounds like a normal evening for the guy who sent a dead pig and used condoms to his castmates from Suicide Squad. He’s so method!

Still good to know that things seem to be coming together for the long-awaited follow-up to Blade Runner. The sooner they release a full trailer, the better.
