Har­ri­son Ford is back!

Ford is not one known for his chirpy, le­nient tem­per­a­ment – and for years, he’s de­nounced the pos­si­bil­ity of a Blade Runner se­quel. So the fact he’s signed up to the project says a lot about the script and its chances of liv­ing up

to the orig­i­nal.

The di­rec­tor is a mega-fan

De­nis Vil­leneuve is one of the hottest di­rec­tors in Tin­sel­town right now – Si­cario was gritty, and Ar­rival was su­pe­rior, smart sci-fi. That Ri­d­ley Scott trusted Vil­leneuve with his most pre­cious of prop­er­ties is a huge deal; that he could ac­tu­ally have the chance

of pulling it off, even more so.

It’s world-build­ing

Not only do the trail­ers prove that Vil­leneuve and co have nailed the look and feel of the most iconic and in­spi­ra­tional fu­tur­is­tic sci-fi world of all time, but there are nu­mer­ous hints of how it’s

ex­panded. Ex­cit­ing.

We’re on board for dystopian Gosling

That coat, that gun, that philo­soph­i­cally tor­tured smoul­der... While no one can re­place Ford, Gosling’s a not-tooshabby suc­ces­sor for the lead­ing

man of a su­per-cool sci-fi.
