And I agree with that sentiment. For example, at the UGC ciné cité les Halles, Paris: The Meaning of the feast has nine daily sessions, compared with eight for Blade Runner 2049.
When an unearthed secret threatens society, one of Harrison Ford's most iconic roles is revisited in a science fiction thriller that opens in theaters this weekend.
"Blade Runner 2049", the superb new sequel by Denis Villeneuve ("Arrival"), doesn't just honor that legacy, but, arguably, surpasses it, with a smart, grimly lyrical script (by Fancher and Michael Green of the top-notch "Logan"); bleakly handsome cinematography (by Roger Deakins); and an even deeper dive into questions of the soul.
How everyone felt the weight of the original while making the sequel.
Like with its predecessor, Blade Runner 2049 is deliberately paced from start to satisfying conclusion and has a peppering of action sequences where necessary, and is packed full of intrigue and will keep you guessing until the end. Fans have argued whether or not Ford's Deckard is himself a replicant; a controversy which has been fuelled over the years by the release of different cuts, which emphasise subtly different elements of the story. Reporters from The Washington Post were not asked to sign this, but because the film contains many genuine pleasures and surprises, large and small, it really is best to know the least about this film.
"Blade Runner 2049", the long-awaited sequel to the 1982 cult classic, has finally arrived.
Blade Runner 2049, with a hefty running time of 163 minutes, now sports an enviable 94 percent fresh rating on Rotten Tomatoes. Whenever 2049 references the original movie, it shifts into a tone of cautious, unquestioning reverence, cowering away from risks exactly when it should be taking them. On whether he has been gotten overtures to direct Bond 25, he said, "I can not talk about that".
It's hard to write about Blade Runner 2049 without spoiling anything-but I can reveal that the movie's central narrative follows a blade runner named K (Ryan Gosling).
Harrison Ford and Ryan Gosling are involved in plenty of press interviews as they promote Blade Runner 2049. In most ways, it's more a Denis Villeneuve movie than a Blade Runner sequel; for some, that'll be an endorsement, and for others, a warning. The film also stars Jared Leto, Robin Wright, Barkhad Abdi, Dave Bautista, and Lennie James.
Yet, "Blade Runner 2049" fits in the established universe near seamlessly.
