AceShowbiz - To celebrate the 35th anniversary of "Blade Runner" this Sunday, June 25, Warner Bros. Pictures shared a new featurette of "Blade Runner 2049". Titled "Blade Runner 2049: Time to Live", the almost-four-minute video offers some new footage as well as behind-the-scenes look and commentaries from the cast and crew.
The video, which is released via Entertainment Weekly, opens with Officer K (Ryan Gosling) walking through what looks like an abandoned casino. Rick Deckard (Harrison Ford) then enters the room, pointing his gun at Officer K. The two later have a good talk until Rick notices the presence of another person who is uninvited toward the end of the video.
The featurette also teases the stunning visuals in the film as it takes us to a teeming city with holograms the size of skyscrapers, which is in contrast to a deserted landscape in other scenes. "The story, the themes, the stunning visual environments - it was a pleasure to get back in the world of 'Blade Runner' again," Ford says of reprising his role.
In "Blade Runner 2049", thirty years after the events of the first film, a new blade runner, LAPD Officer K, 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, a former LAPD blade runner who has been missing for 30 years. Other plot details are not disclosed yet.
Denis Villeneuve is in charge as director, while Ridley Scott serves as producer. Michael Green and Hampton Fancher write the script. Jared Leto, Robin Wright, Dave Bautista and Mackenzie Davis also star in the sci-fi film, which is due out October 6 in the United States.
