So basically "My opinion is better than yours!". I had even written "In my uninformed opinion". In order to express my point of view without setting you off what should I have done? You come off as a jerk.
Johann Johannsson of Iceland (with whom Denis Villeneuve worked on Prisoners, Sicario and First Contact, Editor's note) composes the main theme as planned. However, given the scale of the task, Benjamin Wallfisch and Hans Zimmer joined the team to help Johann. It's hard to get to Vangelis' ankle We have Johann's breathtaking atmospheric sounds, but I needed other things, and Hans helped us.
I just had a random theory about Deckard in 2049 (certainly already proposed by others).
Maybe old man Deckard is a clone or replicant of 2019 Deckard, perhaps created by Neander Wallace (Leto) to usher Officer K (Gosling) along whatever journey of self-discovery he's laid out for him.
That way, Ridley can still insist that 2019 Deckard was a replicant who expired, and thus Tyrell Corp or Wallace's company would have later preserved his memories. Others could infer that 2019 Deckard was a human who was killed or died by other means ("We were being hunted!"), but again his memories and DNA were stored to later create an old man Deckard.
I have been timing all the trailers but I didn't know there was anything being shown on celluloid. I see little reason to release anything on film anymore. I guess I have gone to the 'dark side' as I now find even the flicker of film projection distracting.
I am still mad about the film trailer for Blade Runner 2049 as I wasn't informed that it was being made. I hear that it was a little soft. No one seems to be able to do digital to film anymore. The film version of 'Skyfall' looked pretty great to me but I have not seen an equivalent since Deluxe lab 'retired'.
Sounds like Villeneuve wasn't totally happy either
"Two days ago, Joe Walker, my editor, saw the trailer and was watching like (in shock). And I was like ”It's ok Joe, it's ok, it's ok." Because there are things you work hard to try to keep secret, or create tension, or two characters try in a room to create surprise in the movie. Then you look and the marketing department just shows it all. For me, I don't like it. I wish one day I will have control. I understand the importance of marketing. I understand competition. I understand the needs. But I wish we would be able to sell movies without showing too much of it. In a perfect world...
Interviewer: The line, ”We were being hunted..."
Denis Villeneuve: Yeah, yeah, yeah. I wish it was possible, but what can I say.
