Fans of the original Blade Runner were torn when an announcement was made about a sequel to Ridley Scott's dystopian masterpiece.

Director David Villeneuve signed up for the daunting task of taking it to the next level a whopping 35 years later with Blade Runner 2049 but does he have Scott's technical eye?  Where will the story go?

Here's what they're saying on social media:
