This is one of the franchise continuations that I am cautiously optimistic about. With Denis Villeneuve directing and Deakins as the DP there is a lot of talent behind what is going on screen..just the track record for remakes and sequels is so low…
But with Roger Deakins lensing the film I cannot help but be excited for the visual end of it. Blade Runner 2049 was shot at 2.35:1 on Arri Alexa 65 and Arri Alexa XT Studio with Hasselblad Prime 65’s and Zeiss Master Prime glass.
Ryan Parker and Lawrence Yee snapped these shots of some concept art from the film, which is the best we get for now:
Blade Runner 2049 is slated for release on October 6, 2017 and will star an ensemble cast including Ryan Gosling, Robin Wright, Dave Bautista, Sylvia Hoeks, Ana de Armas, Carla Juri, David Dastmalchian, Barkhad Abdi, Lennie James and Jared Leto. The film is co-produced by Ridley Scott.
