Blade Runner recap - What happened in the first movie?

“Grumpy” Harrison Ford ends up in fits of giggles during This Morning interview

He must turn to Harrison Ford's Rick Deckard, the blade runner from the first movie, to help him out - the problem is, he disappeared over three decades ago. Blade Runner 2049 began with the hard task of playing the belated successor to one of the most beloved sci-fi movies of all time. She was made by Tyrell, who is the head of Tyrell Corp, the company that invented replicants. Scott is a producer this time around, but he had his hands in the film's development, along with "Blade Runner" scribe Hampton Fancher (who co-writes here with Michael Green). But it's a line that resonates beyond the robotic reality of "Blade Runner". Maybe "Blade Runner" wore its complexities on its sleeve, too.

We know it picks up 30 years after the Harrison Ford original - so for this sequel, Ford and Ryan Gosling team up with an equally stellar cast who don't disappoint. The film also stars Jared Leto, Robin Wright, Barkhad Abdi, Dave Bautista, and Lennie James. The two laughed their way through the interview while talking about their upcoming film Blade Runner 2049.

FORD: "I felt like I had a partner when we started acting together".

Netflix Hikes Prices on Top Plans
The company is raising prices for customers with the "Standard" and "Premium" service packages, Mashable reported Thursday. The change will roll out to existing United States members "over the course of the next several months", Netflix said.

Needless to say, a sequel 35 years later to one of the most beloved science-fiction films ever created was met with well-founded skepticism and reluctance. He's done this especially with last year's Arrival.

The story does an admirable job in trying to push forward the ethical issues raised and explored in "Blade Runner".

I remember seeing Blade Runner the week of release, when most people were still describing it as boring, and being awed by it, thinking it was the most unbelievable sci-fi film since 2001. "Are you a fan of the original?" That sentiment is not far removed from most reviews; many are calling the film a "perfect" sequel.

Google Clips is Google's answer to the GoPro
You won't have to worry about strangers spying on you; the Clips camera isn't always connected to wi-fi or Bluetooth. Clips looks for stable, clear shots of people you know and the camera looks for good moments to capture.

The role of "K" presents a real challenge for Gosling, who has to engage us with a character who is, by design, emotionless for most of his screen time.

With aid from the score by Hans Zimmer ("Gladiator", "Dunkirk"), at times haunting and at others bombastic for effect, and the artful cinematography of the brilliant Roger Deakins ("Skyfall", "No Country for Old Men"), Villeneuve puts his full skill set on display in "Blade Runner 2049". I personally prefer his more alive and loose-limbed L.A. detective from "The Nice Guys", but Gosling's nature plays into the movie.
