Is the Sequel a Sci-Fi Masterpiece?

That said, it is fairly crucial to be familiar with the plot points of the original film.

"It's been a huge influence on our culture and my life". Ford fans will enjoy him returning to another iconic role. The one complaint (and it is a small one) is that we don't get more of Jared Leto as monotone villain Wallace. Still, for a guy who's 75 years old, he's in pretty killer shape. It left a lasting impression. "I didn't have access to a gym, and I just sat in my room and did free-squats". For audiences, if not the film's inhabitants, Deckard's presence looms ghost-like throughout the familiar cityscape from the moment the film starts, and the unique way he's employed in the story, after much anticipation (at least three times during the film, I thought to myself, "Okay, here's where Deckard comes in"), pays off handsomely.

Opening in Philippine cinemas and IMAX on Friday, October 6, Blade Runner 2049 is distributed by Columbia Pictures, local office of Sony Pictures Releasing International. Roy Batty's violent escapades on Earth did not mean the end of Replicant kind; no, the Replicants and the humans around them have just adapted in the years since then. He's in the world and he's a part of it, but as he digs deeper and deeper into his assignment - oh, that would be telling - he will gradually to step outside of it and look inward, with new eyes. You've seen enough. Stop reading this, even. And yes, sequels and reboots deserve to stand on their own.

"I felt challenged by it, but excited by it".

The screenplay was written by Hampton Fancher and Michael Green.

"There were times where (a sequel) came up", he says.

David Edelsetein (New York/Vulture) says "you feel every [minute]" of the film's almost 3-hour running time and concludes with a ho-hum, "I thought it was okay".

"I read about the character that Ry ..." began Ford, recalling his impressions upon reading the script, before hesitating. Searching for answers, the key to his investigation lies with a former Blade Runner, Richard Deckard (Harrison Ford).

If Leto had his way, that question would continue into the future.

"First of all, there were a variety of endings", Ford clarifies, making a nod to Scott's multiple versions of the film. Scott's definitive Final Cut, which cemented its masterpiece status, was only completed in 2007. "And I said" - affecting classic Fordian befuddlement - "'Well, maybe.

Officer K (Ryan Gosling) touches something and it brings up a hologram of Frank. Suddenly this very distinctive silhouette appears.

Blade Runner 2049 picks up 30 years after the events of the original Blade Runner, released in 1982, and the events of these short films.

The movie is definitely too long though and there is one weird scene that I don't think we necessarily needed. Thankfully, I already knew what couldn't be discussed: Everything.

The gender-bending rock star was known for his futuristic fashion sense, and starred in a handful of other science fiction and fantasy films at the height of his career.

Deadline Hollywood first reported the news.

This year he earned his first Best Director nomination for his sci-fi mindbender Arrival, which starred Amy Adams as a linguistics professor tasked with communicating with aliens. Shell out the extra money to see this on the biggest and loudest screen in your vicinity.

"For me, "Blade Runner" is 'Star Wars.' It's that expansive". "Seriously, it was a strong help for me". And at the time I was starting to dream about the idea of directing a movie. To anyone familiar with Scott's film, it's clear quite quickly that these bones belong to Rachael (Sean Young), that movie's love interest, a creature designed by deluded corporate mogul Tyrell (Joe Turkel) to do all sorts of things a regular android could not. The imprint of Ridley was very powerful. Visit for more information on this news.

In previous interviews, Villeneuve had likened the sequel to an nearly "impossible task".

"That was one of the big challenges", Villeneuve.
