A lot of movies made a few years ago don't look good today. They would never pass muster. But movies I've worked on using miniatures look good and don't age. If I did Blade Runner 2 today, I would use miniatures, even though I would use digital compositing and other digital effects far superior to optical printing.
Here is a two part interview at Creative Cow where Trumbull discuss what keeps him busy these days. I quite well agree with his above statement and I believe above miniature in Blade Runner is one of the best sci-fi spectacle I have seen in films to date.
I truly hope and wish Trumbull will shift direction of VFX industry once again in near future.
