Oscar nominees Ryan Gosling as K, and Harrison Ford reprising the role of Rick Deckard star in this much anticipated engaging sequel to Riddly Scott’s 1982 classic ‘Blade Runner’.
“Blade Runner 2049” acknowledges the time that has passed since the last time we entered this world. Blade Runner 2049 picks up 30 years after the events of the first film, in an almost apocalyptic world. The replicants – man-made humanoid machines built to do humanity’s bidding – have evolved at a terrifyingly rapid rate. They can reproduce. And if they can reproduce, the persecuted replicant population reasons, they can rebel. They no longer have a
reason to be subservient to their creators. They are the masters of their own fate.
Ryan Gosling plays K, an LAPD Blade Runner, haunted by memories of a childhood he cannot remember. During an investigation into a replicant uprising, he stumbles upon a long-buried secret.
“Blade Runner 2049” marks the third collaboration between Villeneuve and director of photography Roger A. Deakins, following “Sicario” and “Prisoners,” for which Deakins received two of his 13 Oscar nominations.
