Blade Runner Sequel Moved Up Three Months

Originally targeting a January 28th release, Alcon Entertainment has today announced a new global day and date release for the upcoming sequel to Ridley Scott’s “Blade Runner”.

The new film is slated to hit October 6th 2017, putting right in the midst of awards season and up against two other films that currently don’t have titles – one a Warner Bros. Pictures event film, the other an untitled Fox Marvel feature – either “Deadpool 2” or more likely “Gambit”.

Set several decades after the 1982 original, the film will star Harrison Ford reprising his Rick Deckard role along with Ryan Gosling, Robin Wright and Dave Bautista.
