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. 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.Written by

The image of garbage transports dropping their loads into the junkyard of San Diego echoes the setting of Soldier (1998), written by Blade Runner (1982) co-screenwriter David Webb Peoples. In that film, the protagonist is a space soldier deemed obsolete and dumped on a junkyard planet, and is a veteran of battles described by Roy Batty (Rutger Hauer) in Blade Runner. 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.

Ridley: "I've got another one ready to evolve and be developed, so there is certainly one to be done for sure."
Scott Ridley says in a recent interview: "I've got another one ready to evolve and be developed, so there is certainly one to be done for sure." He wants to make another Blade Runner. Truth be told Ridley would make another twenty if he could.
Audiences beware though. We watched the Blade Runner 2049 DVD last night. It is not as good as the original and I rate this a four out of ten.The feeling of suffocation and cramped misery of the original is gone. Instead we get the regularly scheduled 'dystopia' feeling in half a dozen Hollywood movies. The story is nonsensical and makes no sense. In the original the replicants came to earth to find immortality. Here somehow magically synthetic beings have a penis, a uterus and it is all functional.
Why can't studios just give up and admit it. These sequels blow. Trash supreme. I do have to say that the girlfriend is sexy and delicious. I am interested in seeing her body in other films.The DVD also contains three short films that are quite interesting and one of them should have been the opening scene of this film actually. But, another Blade Runner? There is another sequel? There is more to tell? Anything left anyone cares about? Sure, in related news Trump wants to make America great again and all his merchandise is made in China.
No Ridley, there should not be another Blade Runner and if there is I won't be there. If people are out of original ideas then they should simply retire.
