The keys to 'Blade Runner 2049', the return of Rick Deckard and the replicants 35 years later

35 years have passed since the arrival in theaters of 'Blade Runner' , the legendary science fiction film directed by Ridley Scott and starring Harrison Ford . Today it is considered one of the most influential films of its kind, but at the time critical acclaim was not unanimous and was a disappointment at the box office. This last in part because 'ET, the extraterrestrial' had premiered just a couple of weeks before and for nothing became the highest grossing film ever.

However, 'Blade Runner' took very little time to become a cult work and the possibility of a sequel provoked more misgivings than anything else. The first attempt took place there in the distant 1999 and from time to time new rumors appeared more or less reliable. Finally in early 2015 it was confirmed that Denis Villeneuve was going to direct 'Blade Runner 2049' and that Ford would again give life to Deckard. From there everything continued its course and next October 6 will finally reach the cinemas.


Thirty years after the first film, a new blade runner, the Los Angeles Police Officer K, unravels an old secret that can cause chaos in what's left of society. K's discovery puts him on the mission to find Rick Deckard, a former police officer who has been missing for the past 30 years.

The legacy of 'Blade Runner'



After becoming a cult title and also in one of the most acclaimed sci-fi films of all time, 'Blade Runner' continued to evolve. Already in its moment had two different montages , one for the United States and one for the rest of the world, but later they would do more that would give a new meaning to the film.
The big question was whether Rick Deckard was a replicator or not. Scott was always a strong supporter of that idea, but the ending imposed on the version that initially came to theaters fueled the idea that he was actually human. However, Scott did not personally supervise this assembly, so years later would still come another, the final cut .

All this did not in any way damage the legacy of the film, influencing a multitude of later tapes, sometimes only in aesthetic matters, but also on other fronts. A curious case is that of 'Soldier' , the film directed by Paul WS Anderson in 1998, since its writer was David Peoples, who also participated in the one of 'Blade Runner' and that also based on the same novel of Philip K Dick . For this reason, he did not hesitate to name it as his spiritual successor, appearing to appear a spinner of Scott's tape ...

'Blade Runner' is rightly considered one of Ridley Scott's top works, so he was expected to take control of his sequel himself. However, in what he began working with his brother Tony in 2009 was in a prequel in the form of webisodes that failed to get ahead due to funding problems.
Shortly after the idea of ​​a second delivery was reactivated and it was even commented that Christopher Nolan was the desired director by the producers. The thing did not happen of there, since only months later it was announced that Scott would take care to realize it. And so it was until at the end of 2014 that he knew that he would only act as producer, confirming in passing the presence of Harrison Ford, which had been in doubt until then.

The unknown only lasted three months, because in February of 2015 was made the signing of Denis Villeneuve, also being announced the return of Hampton Fancher , one of the scriptwriters of the first installment. His is also the libretto for 'Blade Runner 2049', this time signed with Michael Green .
For his part, Villeneuve gives the jump to the world of blockbuster with 'Blade Runner 2049' after having cemented a career of prestige from independent films. He failed to draw the attention of the film industry and viewers to 'Incendies' in his native Canada, but he had previously shot titles such as 'Maelström' or 'Polytechnique' .

After 'Incendies', for which he was nominated for an Oscar for best non-English film, he made the leap to Hollywood with 'Prisoners' , a notable thriller starring Hugh Jackman and Jake Gylllenhaal. With the latter he also collaborated in his next work: 'Enemy' , an exciting science fiction film with which he finished confirming that we could expect great things from him.
Then came 'Sicario' , a solid border thriller which proved that he knew us quality film with a female protagonist, something that backslid in 'The Arrival' ( 'Arrival'), his best film to date and the which was nominated for an Oscar for Best Director. He did not win it - the prize went to Damien Chazelle for 'La La Land' - but I would not be surprised if that changed in the future.

Harrison Ford becomes Rick Deckard again

Harrison Ford has been a Hollywood legend for years. Already the mere fact of having given life to Han Solo, Indiana Jones and Rick Deckard would be sufficient for it, but is that there are also appearances in titles such as ' Apocalypse Now ', ' Witness', ' Patriot Games' ( 'Patriot Games'), ' the fugitive ' (' the fugitive '), ' Air Force One 'or' what Lies Beneath ' (' what Lies Beneath ').
It is also true that in the 21st century has accumulated multiple box office failures such as 'Firewall', 'Extraordinary Measures' or 'Cowboys & Aliens'. In fact, his best refuge has been to recover his three most remembered characters: returned to be Indiana Jones in 2008 (and the idea is to repeat in 2020), with Han Solo we meet again in 'Star Wars: The Awakening of Force' ( 'Star Wars: The Force Awakens') and now it's Deckard's turn.

K, the character of Ryan Gosling in 'Blade Runner 2049', is the obvious successor to Deckard and Warner has managed to play an actor who has not participated in any sequel or blockbuster to date. The weight of the original film and the presence behind the Villeneuve cameras were some of the essential factors for the protagonist of 'La Land' to accept.
Almost 20 years have passed since Gosling starred in the television series ' Young Hercules', giving shortly after the jump to the big screen, where we have seen on tapes as 'Murder ... 1-2-3' ( 'Murder by Numbers'), ' The Notebook ' (' The Notebook '), ' Half Nelson ',' Lars and the Real girl ' (' Lars and the Real girl '), ' Blue Valentine ' , ' Drive ',' Crazy, Stupid, Love ',' Gangster Squad ' , ' The big bet '(' The big Short ') or ' Two good guys' ( 'The Nice Guys').

However, Ford and Gosling are not the only cast performers the public will recognize. We also have Jared Leto giving life to the great villain of the function have you be starting to typecast in roles wrong between this and 'suicide squad' ( 'Suicide Squad') -, Edward James Olmos reprising the character he played in the original tape, Dave Bautista proving he is more than a guardian of Marvel's galaxy and Barkhad Abdi , the 'Captain Phillips' pirate who was nominated for an Oscar for that work.
In addition there are up to four female characters with importance in the plot: the Cuban Ana de Armas , seen on television 'El internado', is the bride in the fiction of the character of Gosling, Robin Wright , Kevin Spacey's wife in 'House of Cards', Sylvia Hoeks , the Dutch actress who coaxed Geoffrey Rush in 'La Migliore Offerta', and Mackenzie Davis , one of the protagonists of 'Halt and Catch Fire' and 'San Junipero' the award-winning episode of 'Black Mirror'.

Warner has already released two shorts as a prequel to 'Blade Runner 2049' . The first focused on the character of Jared Leto and the second on the Dave Bautista. You can see below:
