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.

In June 2009, "The New York Times" reported that Ridley Scott and his brother, director Tony Scott (I) were working on a Blade Runner (1982) prequel, "Purefold", set in 2019. The prequel was planned as a series of five- to ten-minute shorts, aimed first at the web and then perhaps television. Due to rights problems, the series was not to be linked too closely to the characters or events of the 1982 film. On February 7, 2010, it was announced that production on "Purefold" had ceased due to funding problems. On March 4, 2011, the website "io9" reported that Bud Yorkin was developing a new "Blade Runner" film. It was also reported that Christopher Nolan (I) was desired as director. See more »
When K meets the 3 hookers, there are lots of foreign language ads all around, one of them is for Coca Cola but in Hebrew. The letters flash on and off and then light each letter individually. The order in which they light up is left to right, and not as it should be, since it's Hebrew, right to left. See more »
I hope you don't mind me taking the liberty. I was careful not to drag in... any dirt.

Early in the closing credits amidst the distortion of the letters, Editor Joe Walker's first name initially for a very brief moment appears as "JOI". See more »
As a fan of Blade Runner I was both looking forward to this and dreading it.
Could it be good? Sequels always suck. Just look at Star Wars or Transformers or The hangover. then again, there are a couple of good ones like Godfather or Kill Bill.
This film is beautiful. The scenes, the gloom, the wastelands are all very well done. The holograms and sets are amazing. The women are hot. As a man seeing women so thin, so beautiful, flaunting their bodies in short skirts makes me feel alive. Harrison Ford still has it and can be intense. I also love the dog!
With that said, the story seems unneeded. There is no reason for it really. Importantly, some of the dialogue seemed trite. I want to ask some question?? Hmm... not so impressive.
Finally, I am scared because they left the door open for another sequel. Gosh man, just end it. I love Blade Runner, but don't make Hangover III again.
