With Ridley Scott having toyed with the edit of Blade Runner (1982) over the years, it is fair to ask which version would be considered "canon" going into the sequel. Denis Villeneuve replied by insinuating the follow-up may not be as much of a straightforward sequel as we thought: "The movie will be autonomous and at the same time there will be some link. The only thing I can say is I was raised with the original cut, the original version that Ridley doesn't like. That's the Blade Runner that I was introduced to at the beginning and that I loved for years, and then I must say that I appreciated the very last cut, the 'Final Cut' version. So between all the different cuts, for me it's the first and the very last that I'm more inspired by." See more »
After the scene where K finds the wooden horse inside the furnace, we cut to Joi and K back at their apartment. During their conversation, Officer K's arms change position, from resting on his lap, to his clenched fists being used to support his chin, between shots. See more »
I hope you don't mind me taking the liberty. I was careful not to drag in... any dirt.

Ridley: "I've got another one ready to evolve and be developed, so there is certainly one to be done for sure."
Scott Ridley says in a recent interview: "I've got another one ready to evolve and be developed, so there is certainly one to be done for sure." He wants to make another Blade Runner. Truth be told Ridley would make another twenty if he could.
Audiences beware though. We watched the Blade Runner 2049 DVD last night. It is not as good as the original and I rate this a four out of ten.The feeling of suffocation and cramped misery of the original is gone. Instead we get the regularly scheduled 'dystopia' feeling in half a dozen Hollywood movies. The story is nonsensical and makes no sense. In the original the replicants came to earth to find immortality. Here somehow magically synthetic beings have a penis, a uterus and it is all functional.
Why can't studios just give up and admit it. These sequels blow. Trash supreme. I do have to say that the girlfriend is sexy and delicious. I am interested in seeing her body in other films.The DVD also contains three short films that are quite interesting and one of them should have been the opening scene of this film actually. But, another Blade Runner? There is another sequel? There is more to tell? Anything left anyone cares about? Sure, in related news Trump wants to make America great again and all his merchandise is made in China.
No Ridley, there should not be another Blade Runner and if there is I won't be there. If people are out of original ideas then they should simply retire.
