2049?... Is that when he's due for release?

Regardless, I won't be visiting him.

Saw it this afternoon. *Loved* it.

I'm saying no more than that, but you might need to avoid your own thread for a bit for fear of spoilers! ;-)

No firm plan as yet, but will definitely try and see it at the cinema - probably once the fuss has died down a bit.

This is a film worth seeing on the biggest screen you can imo. There are a few bits of cinematography in particular that are just breathtaking, they're not going to be the same on the telly at home.

The nearest star in Orion is about 240 light years away, so it's good going to get there and back by 2049!

It just about gets 8/10 which was a little disappointing as I went in believing it was going to be a rare 10/10, based on last week's critical buzz. I thought it was going to be flawless.
Acting, aesthetics, sound, score and editing were all very good but sadly there were gaps in the story that needed patching over. Maybe there is a 4 hour version that will tidy it all up.
Still very much recommended though. There are some shots that are just jaw-dropping and for that alone, its existence is justified

Do I need to have watched the previous 2048 films first?

I concur with almost everything you've said. And for that reason, the latest Apes offering is the better film.

In reply to Tom V:

I've seen War for the Planet of the Apes brought up in online discussion of Bladerunner 2049 elsewhere - in terms of "not much dialogue and not that much action and being pretty long but actually quite good"

In reply to Blue Straggler:
I seriously wonder about the expectations of people who consider WPA to have "not that much action", unless they have been suckled on X Box fodder.
And, yes, I thought Bladerunner 2049 was actually quite good.
