Ryan Gosling joins Harrison Ford in Denis Villeneuve’s highly anticipated sequel to Ridley Scott’s genre-defining sci-fi classic.
Thirty years after the events of the first film, a new blade runner, LAPD Officer K (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 (Ford), a former LAPD blade runner who has been missing for 30 years.
Following last year’s remarkable sci-fi headscratcher Arrival, director Denis Villeneuve takes the reins from Ridley Scott (who gets an Executive Producer credit here) to bring us one of the most anticipated sequels in movie history. Jared Leto, Robin Wright and Ana de Armas round out the main cast. The cinematography is by Roger Deakins (Hail, Caesar!, Sicario), and the music by Jóhann Jóhannsson (Arrival), Hans Zimmer (Dunkirk) and Benjamin Wallfisch (It) – inspired by Vangelis’ original electronic score.
QFT has long been a supporter of Villeneuve’s films, from the more ‘arthouse’ fair of Incendies (2010) and Enemy (2013) to the mainstream success of Sicario (2015) and Arrival (2016). We can’t wait to see where he takes us in Blade Runner 2049.
