Blade Runner 2049: Five Fast Facts You Should Know

Harrison Ford, Ryan Gosling and Oscar winner Jared Leto are starring in the upcoming October blockbuster Blade Runner 2049. Here are five fast facts about the film.

 

It Has an Interesting Plot

Blade Runner 2049 is about a young blade runner (Ryan Gosling) who goes on a search to find the former blade runner Rick Deckard. A blade runner is someone who hunts for replicants.  Replicants are violent robots who look like human beings. Deckard has been missing for the past 30 years. And Gosling’s character needs Deckard to help him save society from going into chaos. In the original Ridley Scott film, a group of these replicants committed a bloody mutiny.

 

It's Not a Remake

Blade Runner 2049 is not a remake of the original 1982 critically acclaimed film Blade Runner, also starring Harrison Ford. This is actually a sequel to the original film. The first one took place in the year 2019, while this one, like the title suggests, takes place 30 years later in 2049.

 

We're Getting Old and New Characters

Harrison Ford will be reprising his role as Rick Deckard from the original sci-fi classic. Ryan Gosling will costar as new character Officer K. And Jared Leto will be portraying a character named Niander Wallace.

 

No Ridley Scott This Time

Acclaimed sci-fi director Ridley Scott did not return to direct this sequel. Instead, the director is Denis Villeneuve. Villeneuve was nominated for an Oscar for directing the 2016 sci-fi film Arrival, which starred Amy Adams and Jeremy Renner. He hasn't done much else as far as science-fiction goes, though. But he does appear to be a science-fiction fan, considering his favorite film is 2001: A Space Odyssey.

 

The Movie Was Not Filmed Anywhere in the U.S.

One main filming studio for the film was in Budapest, Hungary. They also filmed at Korda Studios in Etyek, Hungary. And the crew filmed aerial shots in both Spain and Iceland.
