In every lifetime, the older one gets, the more repetition one sees in the world around them. In politics, economics and, of course, sequels to movies that more money can be made off of, we see this trend as age begins to set in. In 2018, we will get a sequel to the 1982 cult classic "Blade Runner."
Not that we were asking for it, we will finally get an answer to whether Harrison Ford's Deckard is actually a replicant. Before dismissing this sequel as a cynical cash grab, the talent behind this new film is genuinely exciting: Harrison Ford returns and co-stars with Ryan Gosling, scripting duties are being taken up by Hampton Fancher (who co-wrote the original) and the film is being directed by the downright brilliant Denis Villenueve ("Enemy," "Prisoners" and "Sicario.") This is a pretty dynamic creative team and Villenueve is a visual and tonal master, so count this film geek as being optimistic for this one.
