Blade Runner 2049 is set 30 years after the 1982 original Blade Runner, which was based on the short story Do Androids Dream of Electric Sheep? by Philip K Dick, and brought to the screen by director Ridley Scott. This time round, the screenplay comes from Hampton Fancher and Michael Green, based on a story by Fancher and Scott.
And today comes the first official trailer.
This time round, there’s a new blade runner, LAPD Officer K (Ryan Gosling), who unearths a long-buried secret that has the potential to sink 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.
The film also stars Ana de Armas (War Dogs), Robin Wright (Everest), Lennie James (The Walking Dead), Barkhad Abdi (Captain Phillips), Jared Leto (Suicide Squad), Mackenzie Davis (The Martian) and Dave Bautista (Guardians of the Galaxy 2)
Blade Runner 2049 is a must-see for sure, and is released in the UK on October 6th, and since 6K resolution cameras have been used, I think I’m going to have to shell out for this one in IMAX 🙂
