Walsh's pacing point was brought up when he was talking about the trailer for the sequel, Blade Runner 2049, which came out last week. And true, there is a lot more action in the new trailer than there ever was in the previews for the original.

A shot-for-shot comparison of the Blade Runner 2049 trailer with snippets from the original cult classic show the sequel 34 years in the making is closer to the 1982 film than some may have realized.
The mashup, put together by IMDb, was posted on Wednesday, following last week's new trailer for Blade Runner 2049. The Blade Runner composite is intriguing, as it makes clear director Denis Villeneuve is paying homage to the original in ways that aren't quite obvious, until you look closely.

Of the 116 films M. Emmet Walsh has been in over the years, he is asked to talk about Blade Runner more than any other. He finds it amusing since he didn't really understand the movie when he first saw it. None of the cast and crew really understood it, save for one person: director Ridley Scott.
In a recent interview with The Hollywood Reporter, days after the release of the trailer for Blade Runner 2049, the actor who played Capt. Harry Bryant in the 1982 cult favorite shared some insights into the production of the pic, how »

Directed by John Lee Hancock (Saving Mr. Banks; The Blind Side), The Founder stars Michael Keaton as Ray Kroc – a down-at-heel salesman from Illinois who transformed a successful restaurant run by brothers Mac and Dick McDonald (John Carroll Lynch and Nick Offerman) into the McDonalds empire known the world over today. Based on a true story, Hancock’s film follows the trail of how Kroc, impressed by the brothers’ innovative assembly-line approach, maneuvered himself into a position where he was ultimately able – by degrees unwittingly and ultimately callously – to take control of the company, transforming himself in the process from failure to ‘founder’ of an American economic empire.
