Still another 10 months until the sequel to Blade Runner hits the big screen, but we've already been given a sneak peek by the film-makers with the release of an 'announcement' trailer featuring footage from the movie. Blade Runner 2049 stars Harrison Ford and Ryan Gosling, and is being directed by Denis Denis Villeneuve, the man behind the recent films Sicario and Arrival.
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 really do believe that Blade Runner is a film that stands alone, and probably should have been left to stand alone. But now that this is well and truly underway - and with Ford and Denis Villeneuve at the helm (not to mention Jóhann Jóhannsson doing the soundtrack) - I'll still definitely be lining up for a ticket come release day (6th October, 2017).
