Blade Runner 2 will open in January of 2018

02.18.2016

Blade Runner 2? Harrison Ford returning? Ryan Gosling starring? Denis Villeneuve directing? Sounds like a match made in heaven! Ridley Scott has been very vocal about the project thus far, even divulging what the first scene of the film is, but now we have a date we can mark on our calendars. BLADE RUNNER 2 will be up on silver screens come January 12, 2018.

The idea of sequel-izing BLADE RUNNER seems ridiculous on paper, but when you look at the cast and the talent involved, it's hard not to give in. Villeneuve and cinematographer Roger Deakins have been creating some great work lately, especially taking SICARIO into consideration. As much as I would have appreciated Ridley Scott returning to this universe, I'm more excited about new blood taking this universe and running with it. Besides, Harrison Ford has had a pretty good track record regarding doing sci-fi sequels to films he did long ago!

BLADE RUNNER 2 hits theaters on January 12, 2018.

Holy hell, do I love the opening of BLADE RUNNER!

Another unnecessary sequel and the January release date is weird.

Blade Runner is my favorite film, so to see it getting a sequel makes me very nervous. On the other hand, it's being directed by one of my favorite up-and-coming directors, starring one of my favorite actors (Gosling), and being scored by an amazing composer. I would have much preferred Ford not being in this simply because it ultimately forfeits the mystery and endless debates that have been had for 30 years.

I hope Harrison Ford will play a minimal role. I see him as a risk, because most of the time he's to lazy or tired to act properly.

He really showed up for Force Awakens and he's FAR more passionate about Blade Runner. He's been wanting to do this movie for years.

Ugh. The talent involved is immense, but not every movie needs to be a universe to explore. I honestly wish they could just leave it alone.

I'm excited for this movie, but does the January release date warrant a cause for concern?

bout as much concern as the Revenant, The Grey or even Deadpool being released in February.

@conman your post is misleading. Revenant came out in December initially. I didn't enjoy the Grey but January is known as a dumping ground for movies. Seems like blade runner 2 would be a better fit for October.
