Images: New Blade Runner 2049 Photos - Plus Denis Villeneuve And Ryan Gosling Discuss The Importance Of Details


Several new photos for Blade Runner 2049 were released courtesy of Entertainment Weekly. Along with the photos, EW also spoke with Ryan Gosling and director Denis Villenueve about the film and the level of detail that was used in the production of the film. Gosling said:

"Here’s a perfect example of working on this film. In the script, my character walks up to a guy sitting at a desk, and we have a very small exchange. It’s probably a quarter of a page of the screenplay. I show up at set that day and that is what they built. I said to [director Denis Villeneuve], ‘You built all this for just one scene? It takes up an entire stage!’ And he said, ‘Yes, well, the scene is in the movie, right?’ It didn’t matter if it was a quarter of a page or an important set piece — everything was treated with the same level of detail and importance."
Villenueve talked about the level of perfection that was undertaken, as well as how weather will play a role in the film. He said:
"It’s not the amount of time [on screen] but the impact of the moment. This film had the longest and toughest casting I’ve ever done. Each extra had to be chosen specifically for their look—we had to get the right faces to bring the right atmosphere to the right scene. Everything — the sets, the lights, the props, the vehicles — they are all saying something about our future.
The climate has gone berserk and the ecosystem has collapsed and the ocean has risen. There are a lot of refugees trying to survive on the West Coast. The presence of the winter brings more charcoal and there’s sparks of color. The yellow is something I can’t talk about, but…it’s a very important color."
The film will debut in theaters on October 7, 2017. Check out the synopsis below.
"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."
