Blade Runner is Nearly Here

Empireonline celebrates the forthcoming movie Blade Runner 2049 with a new front-page poster. Talented artist Van Orton will immerse the fans in the world of Blade Runner. The new artwork will be available July 13 and be granted to loyal subscribers of Empire.

Empire will express the world of Officer K as it comes to life on the page and on the screen. The artwork is a masterpiece in creating a symbol of one of the biggest influences to all of science fiction since the movie 2001: A Space Odyssey.

The art will serve as a sign of gratitude and respect for those who wish to dive into the world of crime-riddled streets, neon lights and humanoid robots. The poster uses a vast array of colors: highlighting reds, blues, greens and yellows. The vibrant nature of the poster reflects the environment based within Blade Runner. The poster provides an atmosphere of mystery and suspense, for within this city anything is possible.

 The legacy continues, as Harrison Ford will return as his role of Rick Deckard in this upcoming sequel since starring in the original back in the ’80s. The new face to the Blade Runner franchise is Ryan Gosling, who is playing Officer K. The new film will take place many years after the events in the first film. The two characters, both Deckard and Officer K, will meet each other in the events to occur in the land of scientific breakthroughs, corrupted politics and bad habits. Blade Runner 2049 will release across theaters worldwide come Oct. 6, 2017.

Denis Villeneuve will direct the movie. He is known for directing other major works such as Prisoners, Sicario and Arrival. His interpretation of the film will be interesting as his style of directing has been decent throughout Hollywood and known to capture raw elements of key visual storytelling in all his movies.
