Way back in 1982 did Blade Runner did arrive at the theaters and it was a time when the audience and critics weren’t quite ready for director Ridley Scott’s dystopian sci-fi noir but over time, the film has become a cult classic, often appearing on lists featuring the most important films of the last thirty plus years! There have been whisperings of a second film for long time now, with development of a sequel beginning as far back as 1999, but after 35 years since the original, Blade Runner 2049 is all set to arrive, finally!
The original Blade Runner (1982) which was about ex-cop Rick Deckard (Harrison Ford) who hunted away replicants (machines that look and act like human beings!) and is still considered as being one of the most advanced sci-fi/ neo-noir films ever which makes this sequel to be one of the most anticipated films of this genre!
Based on the characters from Do Androids Dream of Electric Sheep y Philip K.Dick, Hampton Fancher conceived the story and idea following which he joined hands with Michael Green to draft a screenplay of this neo noir science fiction film.
Officer K (Ryan Gosling), a new blade runner for the Los Angeles Police Department, unearths a long-buried secret that has the potential to plunge what’s left of society into chaos which could eventually bring an end to humanity. His discovery leads him on a quest to find Rick Deckard (Harrison Ford), a former blade runner who’s been missing for 30 years.
Three pretty epic trailers for Blade Runner 2049 and a TV spot are already out and rocking! The newest clip was released recently and gives us a sneak peek inside Officer K’s (Ryan Gosling) sky-city flat, where he listens to jazzy Christmas standards and says scary, foreboding things to maybe-girlfriend Joi (Ana DeArmas).
