We’ve been pretty excited about the new Blade Runner 2049 movie for a while now, and this new featurette has got us even more pumped.
As this weekend marks the 35th anniversary of the original Blade Runner movie, director Denis Villeneuve has decided to spoil us and celebrate this birthday with an epic featurette from the brand-new sequel. And it really is something.
The first Blade Runner movie first came onto our screens in 1982, after Ridley Scott brought the hugely popular Philip K. Dick novel ‘Do Androids Dream of Electric Sheep?’ (how amazing is that name?!) to our screens. Since then, fans have pined for a sequel – but never thought they’d get one. Until now.
30-years later in the futuristic dust-ridden landscape of L.A, Denis Villeneuve continues the story of Blade Runner hero, Rick Deckard (played by Harrison Ford) as he teams up with LAPD officer, K (played by Ryan Gosling) to save the world from a mysterious hidden secret. The whole thing feels very familiar, yet incredibly far away. And we love it.
The featurette follows the on-screen and backstage action behind the making of Blade Runner 2049, with commentary from Ridley Scott, Harrison Ford, Denis Villeneuve, Ryan Gosling, and new recruit, Jared Leto. Although they’re all pretty tight-lipped about the storyline and the plot for the new movie, they’re all keen to sing it’s praises and add their futuristic noir aesthetic to the whole thing.
You might need to watch this one a few times…
