The BLADE RUNNER sequel is here


Ready for a thought provoking sci-fi?

We sure hope that this Blade Runner sequel can be all that we imagine it to be. Ridley Scott‘s 1982 classic redefined the genre in various ways, and we're sure that kind of legacy makes its fans raise an eyebrow about the upcoming Blade Runner 2029. However, the trailer gives us hope and the director, Denis Villeneuve (Arrival) adds to it. Throw Harrison Ford, Ryan Gosling, Robin Wright and Jared Leto in the mix and the chances grow. Give the trailer a go below.

"Blade Runner is a movie about concealment—its plot finds Ford tracking down a loose crew of androids, or “replicants,” trying to pass as humans—and, perhaps fittingly, it took decades of posthumous VHS and pay-cable viewings in order for many of its secrets to surface. What may have seemed at first like a gorgeous, idea-overloaded, slightly poky cyber-noir soon became something far more expansive: An affecting cautionary tale about the fragility of humanity; a stark fable about corporate overreach; or a just-warm-enough love story in which human(?) desire overpowers scientifically mandated destiny. [...] All those moments won’t be lost in time on the internet, where, for the next few months, every single frame of the Blade Runner 2049 trailer will be captured, cataloged, and scrutinized for plot points—all part of the standard-issue (and thoroughly joy-free) pursuit of pre-release pleasures that dominates the circa-2017 movie-blog business." (Wired)

Not a lot of plot leads about the upcoming story, but here's the official synopsis:

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.

Ana De Armas, MacKenzie Davis, Sylvia Hoeks, Lennie James, Carla Juri and Dave Bautista co-star.

Hampton Fancher — who penned the original movie from Philip K. Dick’s 1968 novel Do Androids Dream of Electric Sheep? — and Michael Green wrote the screenplay from a story by Fancher. Sony’s Columbia Pictures will release the film from Alcon Entertainment and Scott Free Productions on October 6.

Blade Runner 2049 opens on October 6, 2017.
