BLADE RUNNER 2049
OUT 6 OCTOBER
Denis Villeneuve: is he a replicant… or a replican? We’re about to find out. Our money’s on the latter given his track record, which includes mysteryladen, atmos-soaked, marvellously moody sci-fi (TF’s film of 2016, Arrival). Just right for a sequel to the ultimate future noir, which stars Ryan Gosling and sees Harrison Ford return to the role of Deckard, a detective so iconic there’s a Jason Statham character named after him. Doesn’t get bigger than that. Plus there’s someone called Joi, memory balls… whoa, is this part of a shared universe with Inside Out?! For some fully baked theorising, turn to page 58 for chat with the director and his cast (or repli-cast?).
