Ryan Gosling’s Experience With Blade Runner 2049

Ryan Gosling has a bit to say for his experience on working on Blade Runner 2049 and working with his co-stars, particularly Harrison Ford. One thing that he has to say is that working on Blade Runner 2049 is like working on 3 different movies. For one thing, it has to cover a lot of ground which includes telling a story that justifies the 35 year wait. There is also the story which apparently involves a fight scene with Harrison Ford’s character, Deckard in which he punches Ryan Gosling in the face. One thing Ryan has to say is that Harrison Ford always brings some fun and professionalism to the work.

 

This reveal from Ryan Gosling suggests that there is something going on in the story among the two leads. Perhaps they are not on the same side. However, there are tons of films which feature two protagonists getting into a physical fight with each other. This does nothing to give away the story. All it does show is that there is going to be some action scenes in this one. This is what the original Blade Runner didn’t have a lot of. However, it is not the lack of action scenes that have made Blade Runner suffer initially on release, it is that it was really slow moving.

 

Ridley Scott has also been seen with the crew. Of course he is offering his insight. One issue that Blade Runner had was that it was ahead of its time. Ridley has said before that it is not good to be ahead of time. However, one good thing about the first Blade Runner is that it has aged very well. The effects and the story hold up well even 30 years later with the newly released final cut that corrects a lot of the glaring issues with the film.

 

As of right now, they are aiming for an October 2017 release. Therefore, they are well under way with the project.

 

Blade Runner 2049 Is Dennis Villeneuve’s Biggest Challenge

Dennis Villeneuve is showing himself to be a very capable filmmaker. His previous films have not only shown themselves to have good storytelling, but also good visuals. This is something that has made him a good match for the upcoming Blade Runner project, Blade Runner 2049. For one thing, it is most likely going to have some really interesting visual shots. At the same time, Dennis did say that the film is not going to look just like the predecessors. Of course, people have mixed feelings about this. However, it is important to consider that the film takes place 30 years after the first one as the current title suggests. Therefore, there will be some differences in the environment like there is in the real world with the advancement of technology.

 

One of the challenges that the new director is faced with is having to live up to the predecessor which is probably impossible. For one thing, the predecessor was not only considered one of the most iconic films in its genre, but also an influence on the genre as a whole. It has also influenced cinematography as a whole. Films like The Matrix, Minority Report, Batman Begins, Dark City, and a few others have taken a bit of influence from the classic. All that could be done with this sequel is to expand on the world of the first film.

 

Blade Runner was not met with a lot of approval when it was first released. However, it has found its audience on home video. Then it has gained even more attention when there was the suggestion that there are more than 5 versions of the film. Five different versions of Blade Runner including the workprint has been released on DVD and Blu-ray in an ultimate collector’s set.

 

There have been many attempts to bring Blade Runner 2 to the big screen. Ridley Scott has been in talks to direct it. However, he has finally stepped down to continue on in the Alien franchise.
