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

The giant Joi in the hologram advertisement was supposed to be her "default" setting, the idea being that K customized her voice and appearance to a less sexualized version. The advertisement version of Joi is not voiced by Ana de Armas but first assistant editor Mary Lukasiewicz. She recorded a temporary voice-over, but the producers decided to keep it in the finished film. See more »
"PAN AM" is seen on the side of a building; there is advertisement for "ATARI" and for "products made in CCCP" (the soviet union). The existence of all these is due to the fact that the movie plays in an alternate universe, not in ours. See more »
I hope you don't mind me taking the liberty. I was careful not to drag in... any dirt.

There are no opening credits, and the title proper is not shown until the ending credits. 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 »
Like a junkie that just can't stop himself from reaching for the heroin Hollywood executives (all hacks) just.cannot.stop.themselves.from.reaching.for.the.sequel.bottle.
It is quite pathetic and not only a waste of time for the audience, but also occasionally ruins its legendary prequel. Such is the case here. Blade Runner was a fantastic story, based on source material from an accomplished author and mainly designed by a bona fide futurologist who worked on the set extensively. It was original, engrossing, moody, thoughtful and full of action. The new one? Well, let me tell you if it weren't for thin shapely legs on a hologram I would not even give it a 4.
Let's see if this is the year's worst sequel or the coming Star Wars (not that I plan on being a douche and watching that).
