Blade Runner 2049

Denis Villeneuve

In 1982, following his success with Alien, Sir Ridley Scott’s next project Blade Runner received mixed critical reviews upon release and performed middlingly at the box office. Four decades later, that film is considered to be a classic and is now set to produce one of the most highly anticipated sequels ever.

"A cyber-punk neo-noir..."

Truly great works of cinematic science fiction should, behind all their visual flair and aesthetic wonder, focus on one simple thing: the human condition. Like its predecessor, Blade Runner 2049 seems set to do just that. A cyber-punk neo-noir, the story revolves around Blade Runner Officer K (Ryan Gosling) as he uncovers a plot which could throw the remnants of civilization into chaos. To aid him in his efforts, K seeks out a former Blade Runner who disappeared nearly 30 years earlier: Deckard (Harrison Ford). Together they attempt to unravel the mystery behind the enigmatic Niander Wallace (Jared Leto) and his plans for an army of replicants.

Canadian director Denis Villeneuve (Prisoners, Enemy, Sicario, Arrival) is a master storyteller and an inspired choice to helm this project. With Ridley Scott on board as executive producer and an excellent supporting cast which includes Robin Wright and Edward James Olmos, Blade Runner 2049 promises to be a spectacular, unmissable film event.
