The first official image from the upcoming Blade Runner sequel, which is still officially untitled, has been released by Warner Brothers/ Sony Pictures.
Denis Villeneuve (Sicario, Prisoners) is directing and principal photography is scheduled to begin this month. The film will be released by Warner Bros. in North America and Sony Pictures Releasing International will distribute in all media for all overseas territories.
“I’ve always been attracted to science-fiction films with strong visual signatures that lead us into unique parallel worlds and the original ‘Blade Runner’ is by far the best of all time,” Villeneuve said in an official release. “Ridley Scott had the genius to blend science-fiction and film noir to create this unique exploration of human condition. The new ‘Blade Runner’ is an extension of the first movie a few decades later.”

While Blade Runner wasn’t very well received upon its released in the early 1980s, it has held up over time and is now revered as a dramatic science fiction film to which all others are compared. It was slow, contemplative, and life-changing for a great number of people, not the least of whom was director Denis Villeneuve, who is set to helm the anticipated Blade Runner sequel.
“I remember the opening sequence perfectly,” Villeneuve told EW. And it’s not just the opening sequence he remembers. After watching the film “thousands of times,” he claims to know the whole thing by heart. “That note of music; seeing Los Angeles in 2019; that smog; that darkness. It’s really the movie that gave birth to my desire to become a director.”
While the world could have very much gone on just fine without a Blade Runner 2, if you were to give a sequel to a filmmaker, »

The story is set amid an alien invasion and centers on a divorced couple who must travel on foot from downtown Atlanta to the suburbs, where their young children are home alone. No director or actors are on board yet.
Spielberg explored similar themes in 2005 sci-fier “War of the Worlds,” a contemporized version of the H.G. Wells novel. The film starred Tom Cruise and Dakota Fanning, produced by his Amblin Entertainment and Cruise/Wagner, grossed nearly $600 million worldwide.

The long-accepted rule in the film industry is that established names bring in the box office gold. Hollywood has always relied on big-name actors to guarantee them big box office. But is the trend changing now? Are fans now becoming less interested in A-list actors than in the characters they play?
A-List Hollywood stars get the big money because they bring in big profits for Hollywood studios. Or at least, they have up until now. Is the era of the A-Lister starting to fade? It’s possible, because in recent years, it seems that film fans have more interest in the role and less in the person playing the role. Look at what’s been happening to many A-lister in recent years.
Let’s take Johnny Depp, for instance. He used to play a variety of roles and could draw in crowds with his name alone. More recently, however, his »

The list of potential replicants continues to grow with today’s news that Barkhad “I’m the captain now” Abdi has joined Denis Villeneuve’s “Blade Runner” sequel. An Academy Award nominee for his “Captain Phillips” performance, Abdi joins returning star Harrison Ford alongside Ryan Gosling, Robin Wright, Ana de Armas, Mackenzie Davis and former WWE Champion Dave Bautista in the secretive production.
Few concrete details have emerged regarding the long-awaited sequel, which follows up on Ridley Scott’s 1982 original. That sci-fi landmark stars Ford as a semi-retired detective in 2019 Los Angeles, where four dangerous synthetic humans (or replicants) are on the loose; no plot details are presently available for the as-yet untitled sequel. 13-time Academy Award nominee Roger Deakins (who lensed Villeneuve’s “Sicario” and “Prisoners” in addition to many, many others) will serve as cinematographer.

With Warner Bros. primed to get the cameras rolling on Blade Runner 2 next month, the studio’s casting spree is beginning to draw to a close – but not before Captain Phillips star Barkhad Abdi books his place in the star-studded ensemble.
Word comes by way of Entertainment Weekly, revealing that Abdi – who earned an Oscar nomination for his turn as a Somali pirate in Paul Greengrass’ 2013 film – has boarded the as-yet-untitled sequel in an undisclosed role. Outside of Harrison Ford reprising as grizzled San Francisco cop Rick Deckard, there has been a similar veil of mystery smothering Blade Runner 2‘s other casting announcement, which have up until now confirmed Ryan Gosling, Robin Wright, Ana de Armas, Sylvia Hoeks, Carla Juri and Dave Bautista for the sci-fi sequel.
That secrecy extends to the story underpinning Warner’s long-awaited follow-up, too, but we do understand Denis Villeneuve will be the one calling »

With a release date of October 6th, 2017, Denis Villeneuve‘s Blade Runner 2 still has ample time to add more cast members to its already extensive list. Thanks to EW, we now learn that Barkhad Abdi, break-out star of Captain Phillips and recently part of the Eye in the Sky ensemble, has been added to that list which includes — *deep breath* — Harrison Ford, Ryan Gosling, Robin Wright, Mackenzie Davis, Dave Bautista, Carla Juri, Ana de Armas, and Sylvia Hoeks.
Between that stellar line-up, Villeneuve stating his passion has always been sci-fi (despite acclaimed successes with Prisoners, Enemy, and Sicario), and this marking his reunion with cinematography maestro Roger Deakins, Blade Runner 2 is shaping up to be something worth talking about. Principal photography is scheduled for July.

Earlier this month, filmmaker James Wan returned to the horror genre with his hit sequel The Conjuring 2, which has done quite well at the box office over the past few weeks. Next month, the filmmaker produces what could be one of the scariest movies this summer with Lights Out, hitting theaters July 22. To get fans ready for this horror-thriller, Warner Bros. has released the second terrifying trailer.
The first trailer debuted back in March, but we haven't heard much about this thriller since then. Warner Bros. did promote this movie during its CinemaCon presentation in April. With the success of James Wan's The Conjuring 2, it could be a good omen for Lights Out, although it will face quite the heavy hitter when it arrives in theaters July 22, going up against Paramount's Star Trek Beyond. We'll have to wait and see if the horror hounds or the sci-fi set will claim that weekend. »
The contemporary story is said to be about kung fu, but plot specifics are under wraps. Johnson and Dany Garcia will produce and Johnson is Not expected to play a role on screen. Longino will adapt the script.
In related news, Universal Pictures is reportedly looking at having Johnson headline their upcoming new take on "The Wolfman" which will be a part of the studio's budding cinematic Monsterverse.
