You wonder if Blade Runner used the Phillip K.Dick book name the movie is based (Do Androids Dream Of Electric Sheep?)would it be the much loved movie it is today? Whatever you think 35 years on Blade Runner 2049 the long awaited sequel is less than 4 months away and today we get a look behind the scenes in a new video.
9th September may mark the 35th Anniversary of the release in the UK, this Sunday is the American anniversary and a brand new featurette has been released. A video EW hope will ramp up the excitement for this long-awaited sequel that delves deep into the mythos. Plenty of behind the scenes looks, which showcases the neon-clad scenery, gorgeous visual and the technical talents of Denis Villeneuve, seeing why he was the chosen one to direct this movie. There is plenty of new scenes in this 4 minute promo but don’t expect anything to be revealed, the unseen footage is focused on the characters.
The promo also includes a short interview with Harrison Ford who reminisces stepping back into the shoes of Rick Deckard. An emotional but nostalgic feel in the same way he had when he returned to Star Wars set…
In Blade Runner 2049, we go forward 30 years into the future since the original movie. Set in Los Angeles 2049 we meet LAPD Officer K (Ryan Gosling) who is the new ‘Blade Runner’. When he unearths a secret, he must track down the legendary Deckard (Ford) or what’s left of society will plunge deeper into chaos. What secret does a runner whose been missing for 30 years?
This video proves once again why the Canadian director is the perfect choice to direct this movie. With Ridley Scott producing the pair share a visual style that’s similar, you could say Villeneuve is a student of Scott. With the mastery of Roger Deakins, this movie is going to be at least a visual treat, hopefully, more too.
Blade Runner 2049 is set for a 6th October 2017 UK, Irish and USA cinema release with Jared Leto, Robin Wright, Barkhad Abdi, Dave Bautista, Ana De Armas, Lennie James and MacKenzie Davis.Powered by Sidelines
