Denis Villeneuve’s Blade Runner 2049 is due out later this year, as we’ve recently gotten a first look at the anticipated picture. But just how on par is the forthcoming flick with Ridley Scott’s iconic original?

To show such, IMDb has put together snippets from the 2049 trailer and clips from the original movie, highlighting the similarities between the two projects.

Blade Runner 2049 takes such detailed cues from Blade Runner that even the physical positioning of the characters mirrors one another, in addition to the utilization of familiar camera motion and framing.

There will, however, be some notable differences between the two films, but we’ll probably have to wait until 2049 arrives on October 6.
