The sequel is set 30 years after the events of the original movie. Gosling plays Los Angeles Police Department Officer K, the new blade runner who unveils a dangerous secret. He starts a quest to find Deckard, who has been missing for three decades, ‘to ask him some questions‘.
If you haven’t done it yet, and know nothing about this sequel too, watch the trailer; we are not spoiling you who’s acting as Rick Deckard. Let’s just say that some people have again played the nostalgia’s card.
It’s useless to say fans are a little concerned, as it always happens, but director Denis Villeneuve already stated some reassurance: ‘The thing I must say is that I love mystery. I love shadows. I love doubts. I would just want to say to the fans that we will take care of that mystery. I will take care of it.‘
Furthermore, since we are talking about a sequel, and there are also quite a few edits of the first chapter, it seems legit to ask which will be the storyline to be continued. Concerns these, which Denis has already taken care of.
‘The movie will be autonomous and at the same time, there will be some link. The only thing I can say is I was raised with the original cut, the original version that Ridley doesn’t like. That’s the Blade Runner that I was introduced to at the beginning and that I loved for years, and then I must say that I appreciated the very last cut, the ‘Final Cut’ version. So between all the different cuts, for me, it’s the first and the very last that I’m more inspired by.‘
