Blade Runner 2049 banner

Blade Runner 2049
Director: Denis Villeneuve
Screenwriter: Hampton Fancher, Michael Green
Cast: Ryan Gosling, Harrison Ford, Ana de Armas, Sylvia Hoeks, Robin Wright, Mackenzie Davis, Carla Juri, Lennie James, Dave Bautista, Jared Leto
Distributor: Warner Bros.
Rated R | 163 Minutes
Release Date: October 6, 2017

Blade Runner doesn’t have all the flashy substance that makes up what some would say is a traditional sci-fi film, but it sure does have all the nuances and subtleties that would make for a great sci-fi noir. Slow-burning detective stories still continue to unravel even in the distant future. You still have the stark monochromatic colors, a constant stream of pessimism, and a character that is drawn into the world of crime. You add a splash of sci-fi, that not only mixes well together, but proves that the elements can work in the right hands.

Blade Runner 2049, Denis Villeneuve‘s strikingly visual follow-up, takes place 30 years after Ridley Scott’s Blade Runner. The filmmaker stays true to the themes explored by Scott’s adaptation of the Philip K. Dick book (Do Androids Dream of Electric Sheep?), while also building upon the mystery and intrigue, as well as adding even more themes that will have audiences talking, even well after the film has ended. Check out the full review below.

Blade Runner 2049 Prequel Short "Black Out 2022"

The final of three Blade Runner 2049 prequel shorts, titled “Black Out 2022,” was released recently.

This one is a little different from the previous two shorts, “2036: Nexus Dawn” and “2048: Nowhere to Run.” For one thing this short is much longer, clocking in at nearly 16 minutes in length. The other two were only around six minutes in length. It’s also not live-action like the previous two were. The final prequel short was instead created in the style of Japanese anime. In fact, it was made by Shinichiro Watanabe of Cowboy Bebop and Samurai Champloo fame.

You can find more on Blade Runner 2049 and check out the new prequel short below.

Dave Bautista in Blade Runner 2049 Short "2048: Nowhere to Run"

A couple of weeks back we saw the first in a trio of Blade Runner 2049 prequel shorts, titled “2036: Nexus Dawn,” which followed Jared Leto‘s character as he sought a repeal of the prohibition placed on replicants.

Now the second prequel short, titled “2048: Nowhere to Run,” has been released. It follows Dave Bautista‘s character, a replicant named Sapper Morton, as he tries to keep a low profile.

Fresh off having his role as the Joker in the current late summer superhero smash Suicide Squad reduced to a brief cameo, Oscar-winning actor Jared Leto has signed on to co-star in the untitled sequel to the 1982 sci-fi masterpiece Blade Runner.

Cameras are set to roll next month on the film that has been in development for years, with a release scheduled for later next year.

Watch Now: ‘Blade Runner’ Behind-The-Scenes Convention Sizzle Reel From 1982

Ridley Scott‘s sci-fi noir masterpiece Blade Runner (my second favorite film by the way) will be celebrating its 30th anniversary next month, a few weeks after the theatrical debut of Scott’s long-awaited return to tentpole idea-driven science-fiction Prometheus. Now that Scott is currently at work on a sequel to Blade Runner alongside original screenwriter – and the man who first gave the project life back in the late 1970’s – Hampton Fancher and a three-disc Blu-ray collector’s edition set of the original hitting stores later this year (no release date has been set but you can pre-order your copy here), a reappraisal of one of genre cinema’s landmark achievements is in order.

Several months before Blade Runner‘s June 1982 theatrical release the Los Angeles-based company M.K. Productions assembled a short 16mm behind-the-scenes promotional film to be screened at sci-fi, fantasy, and horror conventions across the country to drum up buzz about the much-anticipated movie. You can check out the full 13-minute featurette here below.

Blade Runner

You would be hard pressed not to hear any questions about the new Blade Runner film during the press tour for Ridley Scott’s forthcoming Prometheus. There was a debate amongst fans if the film should be a sequel, a prequel, or something along the lines of Prometheus, but a new press release from Alcon Entertainment confirms for the first time that the film will be a sequel. It also offers a few new details about the film.

Hampton Francher, the original screenwriter who penned the first Blade Runner, has been hired to develop, not write, an original story, according to Warner Bros. As some of you may know, Blade Runner is based on Philip K. Dick’s novel Do Androids Dream of Electric Sheep? So just how original the story is while staying true to Dick’s universe remains to be seen.
