Blade Runner sequel off to slow start

Blade Runner sequel off to slow start

Director Denis Villeneuve hasn't committed to anything, but he is now for the first time discussing what a third Blade Runner might look like. The original Blade Runner wasn't a financial success, only making $32.87 during its lifetime at the box office.

The presentation in Blade Runner 2049 is unique and breathtaking.

In honour of the Greek composer's classic brooding soundtrack, Justin DeLay from Reverb has been delving into the tools deployed on the OST for the 1982 sci-fi thriller, which was loosely based on Philip K Dick's novel Do Android's Dream of Electric Sheep.

In 1982's Blade Runner, replicant Roy Batty (Rutger Hauer) is in a relentless search to find his creator, Eldon Tyrell (Joe Turkel). Pistorius was a sprint runner who had metal legs - his legs had been amputated when he was an infant. We don't know if the mother needs human DNA or if Replicant DNA works. Sapper Morton is a completely different model than K, but they're both robots created to serve and obey.

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. He uncovers a web of deceit and corruption that leads him to cross paths with Niander Wallace (Jared Leto) who is one of the most powerful men in the world as the head of the replicant creating Wallace Corporation.

Here is what we do know: Deckard has been missing for the past 30 years.

K (Ryan Gosling), a world-weary police officer, has the job, in his flying vehicle, of locating scattered rebellious androids, putting them out of commission, and retrieving their eyeballs, on which are engraved serial numbers. In order to understand both the secret he's discovered and himself, K embarks on a quest to find the missing Deckard and prevent ruthless and unusual new corporate overlord Niander Wallace (Jared Leto, "Suicide Squad") and his cold-blooded replicant assistant Luv (Sylvia Hoeks, "The Best Offer") from using the secret to their own advantage.

More than any other scene, the moment when K, Joi and Mariette intertwine and become one is thematically handsome, encapsulating all of the questions that Blade Runner 2049 fights to answer about the nature of humanity in one physical act.

HARRISON Ford insists his plane crash could never have put him off flying. Robin Wright is sensational as K's superior, Ana de Armas does wonders as K's unusual love interest and a chilling Sylvia Hoeks emerges the film's most unforgettable figure.

Do you need to watch the original?

On top of Blade Runner 2049's embodiment of the alarming movie industry trend, Wedbush Securities analyst Michael Pachter lowered his price targets for a few movie theater giants.

Curiously, "Mountain" and "Pony" also earned A- grades at CinemaScore from satisfied customers, even though both earned mixed-to-poor reviews from critics (46 percent fresh at RT for "Mountain", 58 percent for "Pony"). This scene was on my mind when I interviewed Blade Runner 2049 director Denis Villeneuve, who said he was attracted to the script (written by two men) partly due to the many female characters.

CNN, however, gave it a negative review.

And yet, when all that beautifully styled futuristic smoke and mist cleared, the Ryan Gosling-Harrison Ford sci-fi sequel premiered with about half what was expected, just an estimated $31.5 million.
