New ‘Blade Runner 2049’ Posters Show the Sleek and the Schlubby
With a new Blade Runner 2049 trailer likely to be released soon (with a Facebook Q&A scheduled for Monday, I assume we’ll see the new trailer either Sunday night at the MTV Movie Awards or on Monday morning), two new posters have been released for Denis Villenueve’s upcoming sci-fi film. The new film takes place 30 years after the original and follows new Blade Runner, K (Ryan Gosling), on a quest to find Rick Decard (Harrison Ford), who has been missing the past three decades.
Looking at these two posters, I still can’t get over that Harrison Ford basically doesn’t have a costume. You look at the Ryan Gosling poster, and you see a cool overcoat that’s clearly tailor-made and meant to evoke the futuristic setting. Then you look at Harrison Ford, and it looks like he’s wearing the clothes he picked up from Target that day. I get the need to be comfortable, but in your dystopian sci-fi future, people typically don’t wear jeans and a t-shirt.
Check out the two new Blade Runner 2049 posters below. The film, written by Michael Green (Logan, Alien: Covenant) and Hampton Fancher (the original Blade Runner), opens October 6th and also stars Mackenzie Davis, Jared Leto, Dave Bautista, Carla Juri, Barkhad Abdi, and Robin Wright.
Here’s the official synopsis for Blade Runner 2049:
Thirty years after the events of the first film, a new blade runner, LAPD Officer K (Ryan Gosling), unearths a long-buried secret that has the potential to plunge what’s left of society into chaos. K’s discovery leads him on a quest to find Rick Deckard (Harrison Ford), a former LAPD blade runner who has been missing for 30 years.
