New 'Blade Runner 2049' Photos Give Us Our Best Look Yet at a Familiar World
They've REALLY nailed the look of the 1982 movie.
Just a couple days after seeing the first teaser for Blade Runner 2049 go online, we've got a batch of new photos from the upcoming film that give us our best look yet at the long-awaited sequel's aesthetic design. The pics come from Entertainment Weekly, and they reveal a world that'll look awfully familiar to fans of the original 1982 sci-fi classic. As in the teaser, the photos imply Ryan Gosling is playing a young Blade Runner living in the shadow of Rick Deckard (Harrison Ford). In almost every way he looks like the new model (maybe literally?) of Deckard's replicant-hunting detective. He's even got a dark-haired ingenue at his side, just like in the original — this time Ana de Armas as a character named Joi.
Included in the new photos are the creative minds behind the endeavor. In one photo Blade Runner director Ridley Scott seems to be going over something with Harrison Ford and in another Blade Runner 2049 director Denis Villeneuve is reading while immersed in one of the film's sets. Check them out below and see what you think.
