It’s pretty cool to see this comparable footage side-by-side, but the real comparing won’t start until Denis Villeneuve’s Blade Runner 2049 arrives in theaters October 6. Am I the only one who thinks that the old one looks better?

Thirty years after the events of the first film, a new blade runner, LAPD Officer K (Ryan Gosling), unearths a long-buried secret that has the potential to plunge what’s left of society into chaos. K’s discovery leads him on a quest to find Rick Deckard (Harrison Ford), a former LAPD blade runner who has been missing for 30 years.
