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.
I begin with a confession: I have never watched the first Blade Runner. I have it in my collection and yet I have failed to view it. However, I do know that it is considered one of the most important science fiction films of all time and, knowing that, I also know that fans will be stoked for a sequel after all these years.
Blade Runner 2049 is directed by Denis Villeneuve and written by Hampton Fancher and Michael Green; it is based on the source material of Philip K. Dick’s “Do Androids Dream of Electric Sheep”. The film stars Harrison Ford, Ryan Gosling, Robin Wright, Dave Bautista, Sylvia Hoeks, Ana de Armas, Carla Juri, David Dastmalchian, Barkhad Abdi, Lennie James, and Jared Leto. Look for it in theaters on October 6, 2017, check out the official Facebook page and enjoy the teaser trailer ↓.
