From Star Wars to Star Trek, every classic sci-fi movie is getting the reboot treatment these days. But the most exciting has to be "Blade Runner 2049", a long-overdue follow-up to Ridley Scott's 1982 sci-fi classic. This morning, Entertainment Weekly dropped the first sneak peek at the new movie, and we're pumped.
Director Denis Villeneuve just delivered the thoughtful, beautifully-lensed sci-fi hit "Arrival", and he's assembled an excellent cast for "Blade Runner 2049": Other than Harrison Ford and Ryan Gosling, expect to see Robin Wright, Dave Bautista, Jared Leto and more. 'Blade Runner 2049' opens in theatres on October 5, 2017. The official plot synopsis follows:
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.
