The 1982 film starring Harrison Ford Blade Runner was one of those Sci-fi films -like Star Wars- that had an incredible cultural impact. The movie was not initially a success in the U.S.; however, it was really popular internationally and ended up gaining a cult following over the course of the years. The film’s dark style and futuristic designs have served as a benchmark and its influence can be seen in many subsequent science fiction films, T.V. shows, and other media.
Now, more than 30 years after the first film, a sequel is coming. The film, titled Blade Runner 2049, is scheduled to be released October 6, 2017, according to the movie’s Twitter:
2049 is just one year away.#BladeRunner 2049 – in theaters October 6, 2017.
Not much has been currently revealed regarding the film itself but we can predict that the movie will take place 30 years after the original, given the title. There is a new picture out, however, with Scott, Villeneuve, Gosling, and Harrison Ford; reportedly talking over some Blade Runner weaponry. From that, we can guess a few things: Harrison Ford is most likely coming back for the sequel (although whether he returns as the main character remains to be announced), Ridley Scott is back as Director (perhaps with Denis Villeneuve as co-director) and Ryan Gosling will probably play a main role in the film.
