Blade Runner 2049 Trailer


Officer K (Ryan Gosling) is an LAPD law enforcer and a new Blade Runner whose job it is to hunt down and destroy any replicants that find their way to Earth. Replicants are genetically engineered people with short lifespans who have been used solely for work on space colonies for the last few decades. However, when Officer K uncovers a terrifying secret about the replicants that threatens the future of the entire planet, he embarks on a search for a Blade Runner named Rick Deckard (Harrison Ford) who has been missing for 30 years. It's here we uncover the truth behind Deckard's identity, after the original movie left it cloaked in mystery. Meanwhile, replicant manufacturer Wallace (Jared Leto) has nefarious intentions on his mind regarding his 'children'.

The official announcement trailer for 'Blade Runner 2049' is finally here and while we still know little about the plot, we do get a glimpse of Ryan Gosling in his leading role as Officer K. We see him approaching the wreckage of what looks like a blimp and then an empty building in which he comes across a gun-wielding Harrison Ford who returns as Rick Deckard.

Ryan Gosling Ridley Scott Harrison Ford Denis Villeneuve

Director Ridley Scott has said he thinks Ryan Gosling will take the lead role in the new Blade Runner film which will also star Harrison Ford. But the follow up to the 1982 sci-fi cult classic will not have Scott behind the camera, as he’s now handed the reigns over to Denis Villeneuve.

Speaking to Den of Geek Scott said, “I think Ryan Gosling is probably going to do it, with Harrison.” When then asked if Gosling would play the central character Scott replied, “Yeah, yeah. I can’t really say more than that, because it’ll give away the story. But Harrison’s definitely in it. In an important way.”

Sicario Further Challenges The Action Woman In Emily Blunt


Emily Blunt Denis Villeneuve

After her fierce performance in Edge of Tomorrow, Emily Blunt wanted to take a break from action movies. But Canadian director Denis Villeneuve wanted her to give it another go in the drug cartel thriller Sicario. She wasn't so sure, having just given birth to a baby. "But he's like a quiet assassin," Blunt says. "He lures you in with this smile and this lovely humour, and suddenly you're in Mexico, speeding down the street!"

While working on the film, Blunt was shocked at "the sheer brutality of the imprint that cartels leave on people's lives". But she liked the way Sicario (the word is Mexican slang for "hitman") never shies away from that. "I think it reveals how cheap life has become for everybody," she says.

'Sicario' Star Emily Blunt Doesn't Think Of Gun-Toting Female Roles As 'Tough'


Emily Blunt Denis Villeneuve

The film industry is quickly becoming awash with badass female characters and Emily Blunt is one of those actors who have mastered the art of the 'tough girl'. But with her new film, cop thriller 'Sicario', she believes that 'tough' isn't necessarily the best way to look at it.

Blunt plays FBI agent Kate Macy, who is on board a mission to beat the drug trafficking over the Mexico-US border. However, the male dominated team around her have methods that she's not so sure she wants to be involved in, but when things start to get out of control, she is forced to question her own morality if she wants to live. While her performance might've impressed her co-stars and the crew on the set, the character was very nearly re-written for a guy over fears for its viewability.

Jake Gyllenhaal Denis Villeneuve

Jake Gyllenhaal and Prisoners director Denis Villeneuve combine once more with Enemy, a psychological thriller that sees the 33-year-old actor come face-to-face with a man who bears his physical aesthetic to the nose hair. Adam (Gyllenhaal) is an unassuming, socially awkward quiet professor, who doesn’t really go out much.
