Don't expect anything earth-shattering with the performance by Ford as Deckard. The script written by original Blade Runner screenwriter Hampton Fancher and Michael Green (Logan) effectively pushes its predecessor's ideas about the nature of emotion, consciousness, and what it even means to be human/alive forward, in a way that makes sense given the pre-established "rules" of the Blade Runner universe.
"It's an existential story", director Denis Villeneuve said. Blade Runner 2049 stands on its own so it's not necessary to see the first film, but it will definitely enhance and prepare you for the experience if you have. The world in Blade Runner 2049 feels like a glimpse into the future with corporations relying on machines for business and pleasure with the artificial intelligence becoming more human with every new update.
Blade Runner is a film that "may not have done well at the box office, but broke the all-time record for the number of film geeks insisting it is genius".
Supreme Court To Hear Illinois Case Challenging Union Dues Three state employees, including Janus , joined the suit, which was eventually thrown out by a federal judge and an appeals court.

What was it like working with Roger Deakins? "They finally came up with a good story".
While Ford's character (Rick Deckard) doesn't appear until the second half of the movie, he does play a big part opposite Gosling's character (Officer K), who serves as the main character.
But hey - it's not BLADE RUNNER. The film also stars Jared Leto, Barkhad Abdi, Dave Bautista, Ana de Armas, Sylvia Hoeks, Lennie James, and Mackenzie Davis.
Forbes, on the other hand, is less than impressed with the film. And yet Deakins, who is considered one of our greatest living cinematographers and among the best to ever have done it, has never actually won the Oscar that he's been nominated for so many times.
Blade Runner 2049 begins playing in USA theaters on Thursday evening, October 5th.
