With stunning cinematography by Roger Deakins and a blistering synth score by Jóhann Jóhannsson that pays homage to Blade Runner’s original theme by Vangelis, Villeneuve appears to honour the world of Scott’s film while taking it to a whole new cinematic level.
Synopsis: 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.
