In the near future, a weary Logan cares for an ailing Professor X, somewhere on the Mexican border. However, Logan's attempts to hide from the world, and his legacy, are upended when a young mutant arrives, pursued by dark forces.
Thirty years after the events of the first film, a new blade runner, LAPD Officer K (Ryan Gosling), unearths a long-buried secret that has the potential to plunge what's left of society into chaos. K's discovery leads him on a quest to find Rick Deckard (Harrison Ford), a former LAPD blade runner who has been missing for 30 years.Written by

Ridley Scott started the production and was set to direct, but in the end turned down the project due to scheduling conflicts with Alien: Covenant (2017). He remained, however, as executive producer and creative consultant. See more »

I hope you don't mind me taking the liberty. I was careful not to drag in... any dirt.

The Warner Bros logo features a shot of the WB studios as it fully forms. As the WB logo glitches, the shot turns to nighttime. See more »
The film's IMAX release presented the film open-matte, at an aspect ratio of 1.90:1, meaning there was more picture information visible in the top and bottom of the frame than in normal theaters and on home video. See more »
These are my opinions, but many around here agree with me so please hear me out.
I am not going to pose or be pretentious. I am going to be honest and simply lay it on the line.
The good: I am a Blade runner fanatic. The DVDs (yes, more than one edition) are sitting to my right as I type this. The original was just that: original and deep. The futuristic vision, the subplots and the theme were fantastic. Vangelis' score was once-in-a-life-time. I really liked BR2049's graphics and how big the effects were. The colour palette was impressive and made us feel in awe. I am a man so I like women's skin. beautiful women do it for me. My girlfriend knows it, I know it, my friends know it. Beautiful women make me happy.
The bad: we just do not need any more sequels, prequels and spin offs. We really do not. yet, that is all you are releasing. Even a general favourite like Blade Runner does not need its own sequel. Yes, granted we went for it, but seriously get a grip. We do not believe positive professional reviews anymore. We learnt that lesson with The Force Awakens. Not one professional reviewer mentioned that it is an inferior reboot. Finally, your films are becoming longer and longer. What is with the 2-hour plus movies that have become longer? Couple that with the twenty minutes of commercials (didn't I just pay you? why do I have to pay more with my time?) you force on me I am tempted to stay at home and skip the cinema.
Think about it.
