We’ve seen things you people wouldn’t believe – including these brand new (and quite beautiful) posters for the long-gestating sequel, Blade
After almost 34 years, Ridley Scott’s seminal sci-fi film has got a follow-up that sees acclaimed director Denis Villeneuve (Sicario, Arrival) return to the world of replicants in 2049 and has Harrison Ford (Star Wars: The Force Awakens) reprise his role as former Replicant hunter Rick Deckard. Will we get definitive proof as to whether Deckard is indeed a Replicant? Scott always maintained that he was but we still don’t know 100%.
The new film is led by Academy Award Nominee Ryan Gosling (La La Land, The Nice Guys) as our new Blade Runner, named K, who is the new hunter. However, on his mission, he uncovers a secret that could send the current society into chaos – and to Deckard.
Joining Gosling and Ford are Robin Wright (Wonder Woman), Dave Bautista (Guardians of the Galaxy Vol.2), Ana de Armas (Knock Knock), Mackenzie Davis (The Martian), Lennie James (The Walking Dead), David Dastmalchan (Ant-Man), Barkhad Abdi (Captain Phillips) and Oscar Winner Jared Leto (Suicide Squad).
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.
Stay tuned as a new trailer for the film is due for release very soon – indeed, there is a special Blade Runner 2049 event scheduled for next week in the US so we may get a new look very soon!
Blade Runner 2049 opens in the UK on October 6th.
