Harrison Ford, Ryan Gosling, director Denis Villeneuve and a hologram of Jared Leto appeared on stage at the Warner Bros. Pictures panel at San Diego Comic Con this morning to promote the release of “Blade Runner 2049”.
A video titled ‘Road to Blade Runner 2049’ and narrated by Edward James Olmos kicked off the panel, showing how the world within the films had changed in the thirty-year gap between the movies. A tie-in site has now gone online which offers a more in-depth look and what changes have happened.
Speaking about the film and why he chose to do it, Villeneuve said: “I didn’t want someone else to f–k it up.” The other day whilst speaking to Collider, Villeneuve confirmed that the current cut of the film comes in at 150 minutes and he’ll be working on the final edit until the end of August.
A clip was also shown from the film which sees Ryan Gosling’s Agent K reviewing Deckard’s Voight-Kampff test on Rachael from the original film.
“Blade Runner 2049” opens in cinemas on October 7th.
