Denis Villeneuve admitted that he was initially hesitant to take on such an iconic property: "It's more than nervous, it's a deep fear. I mean, when I heard that Ridley Scott wanted to do another movie in the 'Blade Runner' universe, at first my reaction was that it's a fantastic idea, but it may be a very bad idea. I'm among the hardcore fans of Blade Runner (1982). It's one of my favorite movies of all time. It's a movie that is linked with my love and passion for cinema. I'm coming from a small town in Quebec where, at that time, there was no internet and the way to be in contact with movies were those American fan magazines like 'Fantastic Films' and 'Starlog' and I still remember the shock, the impact of seeing the first frames, the first pictures coming out of 'Blade Runner'. Me and my friends were in awe, so excited, and the movie was such a strong cinematic experience. A new way of seeing sci-fi." 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.

Has this world gone insane? Are you all mad? Is it madness or are your deeds making me feel it is a crazy world? People are blowing each other up, presidents are blatantly lying in people's faces and getting their vote, ministries are making war and being called Ministry Of Defense, companies are polluting the planet and getting richer and on and on and on.
Here comes a sequel for a classic of cinema that is currently rated higher than its original. The professional critics dutifully according it superlative reviews is not a surprise. The weekly release of a new Marvel movie gets the usual high reviews from this bunch, which tells me they are on the take. How does one explain the 10/10 perfect reviews on IMDb? Do these reviewers actually believe this is the absolute immaculate and perfect film with nothing in it that could be improved in any way?? I would accept this world as a more sane place if you tell me this is a case of fake shill reviews paid for by the studio (as happened with Star Wars The Force Awakens and others). That I would believe and (sadly) understand. Otherwise, is there someone who really thinks this sequel is better than the original and is perfect?? This film deserves 2/10 for its images and graphics and not much else. The women are eye candies for sure so add another point, but otherwise the inferior music that goes off for no reason, the non-ending that is surely an attempt to set up more sequels and inane dialogue are a shame to the name Blade Runner.
Were the makers able to get away with using the name because Philip K Dick has died and cannot stop them?
