Another week, another dose of trailers! 2017 is shaping up to be an incredible year for cinema Vault Dwellers (lord knows we'll need the escape), and I'm about to give you four more reasons why! Keanu Reeves is back as everyone's favorite puppy-avenging hitman, Harrison Ford reprises his role of Rick Deckard, Roger Corman produces an official followup to his cult classic DEATH RACE 2000, and indie filmmakers hailing from France are prepping to create a feature-length 80s-style musical sci-fi epic! Let's get to it, shall we?!
TRAILER #1: BLADE RUNNER 2049
Release Date: October 6, 2017
Set thirty years after Ridley Scott's sci-fi classic, Ryan Gosling stars as K, a new "blade runner" that stumbles upon a secret that could send all of society spinning into utter chaos. Seeking answers, K seeks out Rick Deckard for information and aid! Honestly, I'm not a huge fan of the original BLADE RUNNER, but it's been nearly two decades since I've watched it, so it's probably time that I revisited it. If you're a big fan of the original movie, peep out the teaser below and get excited!
TRAILER #2: BLOOD MACHINES: TURBO KILLER II
Release Date: TBA 2017
Currently in pre-production, BLOOD MACHNES acts as a sequel to a short film / music video called TURBO KILLER. (Watch it HERE.) Set in a BLADE RUNNER-esque universe, the film follows two space hunters who chase after a female ghost that exited a rogue machine they took down. BLOOD MACHINES is currently still in its crowdfunding phase, and on track to raise enough for a thirty-minute short film. However, if "Seth Ickerman" and friends raise $666,666.00, they will gear up to create a feature-length tale utilizing their impressive digital effects, and music by Carpenter Brut. Scope out the music video for TURBO KILLER, and their Kickstarter campaign video below! If you're impressed, feel free to toss a few bucks their way!
TRAILER #3: DEATH RACE 2050
Release Date: January 17, 2017 (DVD & Blu-ray)
In the year 2050, the Earth becomes overpopulated. To help bring population levels down in the "United Corporations of America," the Death Race is developed. Held annually, this race allows participants to speed from coast to coast, picking off unlucky pedestrians along the way to earn points! Hmm.... though I thought this was a sequel of sorts, it seems like it might be more of a reboot? Guess I won't find out for sure until next January!
TRAILER #4: JOHN WICK - CHAPTER 2
Release Date: February 10, 2017
Bound by a blood oath, retired hitman John Wick travels to Rome to help a former associate take control of an international assassins' guild! There's nothing much else to say about this, other than "HOLY CRAP, IT'S A NEW JOHN WICK MOVIE!" I loved the first one, so I am totally on board to see this sequel! Here's hoping it's just as good as, if not better than, its predecessor!
