BLADE RUNNER 2049
Set three decades after Ridley Scott’s landmark film, this sequel plunges us back into the neon-andnoir dystopia of the original—which now feels less like a cautionary projection than an unsettlingly plausible future. Denis Villeneuve (Arrival) directs Ryan Gosling in the role of an LAPD officer who teams up with Harrison Ford’s Rick Deckard, hunter of rogue cyborg “replicants,” to prevent humanity’s downfall.
