blade runner 2049 edward james olmos

Decades before he confirmed himself as a bonafide science fiction icon as Admiral Adama in the great Battlestar Galactica remake series, Edward James Olmos had a key role in Ridley Scott’s 1982 masterpiece, Blade Runner. Now, we know that he’s following in the footsteps of original star Harrison Ford and returning to the rainy, grimy streets of future Los Angeles in director Denis Villeneuve’s upcoming sequel, Blade Runner 2049.

Dunkirk teaser

Sometimes humans can be terrible at predicting things, but that doesn’t mean we can’t have fun when we try. My previous attempts to predict my favorite films of the year are often wildly inaccurate — inevitably, my actual favorite films of the year will contain lots of entries that I couldn’t have possibly foreseen.

That being said, for 2017, the job is slightly easier. There are sequels on the docket that lots of people are actually psyched to see, rather than follow-ups people didn’t need (Alice Through the Looking Glass) or ask for (The Hunstman: Winter’s War). Still, I have no doubt that my favorite films of the year will be those that I couldn’t have possibly predicted at this stage.

After the jump, check out my picks in chronological order based on release date. Also, I recorded an episode of my new podcast with Joanna Robinson, Gen Pop, in which we both discuss the films that have us most excited. Listen below (and also see Jacob and Ethan’s lists).

Ethan Anderton Most Anticipated Movies of 2017

The first weekend of theatrical releases in 2017 arrives in just a couple days, but since it’s January, we’re still getting rollover from awards season mixed with garbage that doesn’t deserve a release date at any other time. So we’re already looking forward to some of the more exciting movie releases coming this year, and the movies that I’m looking forward to the most range from blockbuster sequels to movies from filmmakers who haven’t delivered a new film in a few years.

blade runner 2049 mysteries

While the ham-fisted theatrical cut of Blade Runner felt the need to tie everything up with a neat little bow, the infinitely superior director’s cut and the even better “final cut” conclude on a more ambiguous note. Was Harrison Ford‘s Rick Deckard, a robot-hunting “blade runner” for the LAPD, a Replicant himself the whole time? Everyone has an opinion and the debate has raged on for years amongst fans and the people who actually made the film.

And with the sequel arriving next year, there are plenty of Blade Runner 2049 mysteries ahead of us, and it’s good to know that those closest to the productionseem compelled to keep one of the big unanswered questions from the original movie intact.
