Blade Runner 2049 stars Ryan Gosling, Harrison FordDave Bautista, Ana de Armas, David Dastmalchian, Hiam Abbass, Jared Leto and Robin Wright. It is directed by Denis Villeneuve (Sicario, Prisoners).

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.

Some new images from Blade Runner 2049 have been released, along with this new featurette, and Denis Villeneuve has been talking to EW about the film. He now has me very intrigued about the colour yellow!

The climate has gone berserk and the ecosystem has collapsed and the ocean has risen. There are a lot of refugees trying to survive on the West Coast. The presence of the winter brings more charcoal and there’s sparks of colour. The yellow is something I can’t talk about, but…it’s a very important colour.

Ryan Gosling also spoke about the level of detail that went into making the film.

Here’s a perfect example of working on this film. In the script, my character walks up to a guy sitting at a desk, and we have a very small exchange. It’s probably a quarter of a page of the screenplay. I show up at set that day and that is what they built. I said to [director Denis Villeneuve], ‘You built all this for just one scene? It takes up an entire stage!’ And he said, ‘Yes, well, the scene is in the movie, right?’ It didn’t matter if it was a quarter of a page or an important set piece — everything was treated with the same level of detail and importance.

Villeneuve went on to talk about that.

It’s not the amount of time [on screen] but the impact of the moment. This film had the longest and toughest casting I’ve ever done. Each extra had to be chosen specifically for their look—we had to get the right faces to bring the right atmosphere to the right scene. Everything — the sets, the lights, the props, the vehicles — they are all saying something about our future.

The film is written by Hampton Fancher and Michael Green, and succeeds the initial story by Fancher and David Peoples based on Philip K. Dick’s novel Do Androids Dream of Electric Sheep.

Denis Villeneuve has also said that it is going to be rated R.

The film is out on 6th October 2017.
