Blade Runner 2049 — New Featurette: 'The World of Blade Runner'


added: Tue, Sep 19th '17

Ridley Scott's 1982 science-fiction masterpiece "Blade Runner" is remembered for a lot of things. But the one thing that sticks in the minds of most moviegoers is how the film actually looks. From its groundbreaking set designs to its incredible cinematography, the stunning visuals of the "Blade Runner" universe have continuously influenced and inspired generations of cinephiles.

So when Denis Villeneuve, the acclaimed French-Canadian director of "Arrival and "Sicario," was handed the reins of the long-awaited "Blade Runner" sequel, the film's visual look was certainly one of the top priorities.

"The first 'Blade Runner' sent a shock wave around the world. At the beginning, we agreed what we were doing was deeply exciting. And that it was a privilege," Villeneuve says in a new "Blade Runner 2049" featurette, which offers a more insightful peek at the film's bleak yet gorgeous future world.

"It's the same kind of color palette but made by another painter," explains Villeneuve.

Starring Ryan Gosling and Harrison Ford with Jared Leto, Ana de Armas, Mackenzie Davis, Dave Bautista and Robin Wright, "Blade Runner 2049" arrives in theaters October 6th.

Thirty years after the events of the first film, a new blade runner, LAPD Officer K (Ryan Gosling), unearths a long-buried secret that has the potential to plunge what’s left of society into chaos. K’s discovery leads him on a quest to find Rick Deckard (Harrison Ford), a former LAPD blade runner who has been missing for 30 years.
