As we inch closer to Blade Runner 2049's October release date, we have a new trailer to dig into for clues. As you can see below, there's a bit more too chew on, particularly with regards to LAPD Officer K (Ryan Gosling) and Rick Deckard's (Harrison Ford) big meeting, which was initially previewed in the first trailer. This movie marks the third time in which Ford has returned to a character after several years, the other two being Star Wars and Indiana Jones. "We were being hunted!", says Deckard to Gosling's character.
The trailer was revealed during Good Morning America, and shows some new details about the upcoming cyberpunk thriller. If I wasn't excited before to see Denis Villeneuve take on the classic sci-fi property, I am over the moon for it now. So I made peace with that. According to one of the cast members, though, Blade Runner 2049 will be even better than Scott's original touchstone work. Additionally, Ford said earlier this year that the sequel "acknowledges and deals with some of the ethical considerations that technology presents us with". If Blade Runner 2049 turns out to be a success, both critically and commercially, then there's at least a chance for another installment down the line.
New IBM Z mainframe takes on encryption
IBM said it designed IBM Z collaboratively with 150 clients, including security experts and chief security officers. There can be up to 32TB of memory, three times the z13 maximum, and its IO is three times faster as well.
Blade Runner 2049 still looks like a weird, wild ride into a neon-infused vision of Earth's future.
