Women in Blade Runner 2049 are constantly objectified by the world around them, turned into automated helpers, puppets, and sex toys. The post-dystopia built by director Denis Villeneuve is cruel and dehumanizing to everyone, but especially to women.
Blade Runner 2049 was a critical darling, getting a largely raving reception, but audiences didn’t seem to reciprocate. The movie had lackluster success, failing to bring in little more than half its budget domestically. And while it’s done better overseas, director Denis Villeneuve is struggling to understand why the…
Almost every film you’ve ever seen was longer in an earlier version. That’s why they go through editing. But when a film is already long, it’s interesting to hear how filmmakers tried to deal with it. And director Denis Villeneuve reportedly considered something bold for Blade Runner 2049.
Imagine if your favorite movie in the world was Blade Runner and one day, you were asked to work on the sequel. That’s what happened to senior conceptual designer George Hull and the result is work bursting with that passion.
When it comes to the world of Blade Runner, the mysteries have always been better than the solutions. Part of why a sequel like Blade Runner 2049 even exists is because the original film asked so many hard questions and gave so few concrete answers—and it’s a tradition that continues with the new film.
With just under a month until the release of Blade Runner 2049, director Denis Villeneuve has asked three directors to make short prequel films to set up that story—and the second one is out now.
We just got a bunch of new footage from the hotly anticipated sequel to Ridley Scott’s dystopian scifi classic, courtesy of a brand new trailer. And Harrison Ford’s Deckard says something so potentially huge you’ll be reeling.
So it’s come to this. Blade Runner fans have debated for decades whether or not Rick Deckard (Harrison Ford) was a replicant. And they’ve debated whether or not there even was an answer in the movie at all. They’ve debated who to believe. And when Blade Runner 2049 directed Denis Villeneuve said that there wouldn’t be…
The second trailer for Blade Runner 2049 is here and, as expected, it’s just undeniably beautiful.
But we don’t think that should worry you.
Blade Runner is considered the pinnacle of scifi filmmaking, and one of the most visually influential movies of all time. But in the age of CGI, it’s getting harder to find films that are willing to stick with the practical effects that helped make Blade Runner a cinematic legend. Luckily, the sequel’s director has…
Denis Villeneuve has said that adapting Dune is his dream, but that it would never happen. Now he’s been officially hired to make the first in a series of Dune movies for Legendary Pictures. We wish him all the luck in Arrakis.
Obviously, those huge spaceships in Denis Villeneuve’s Arrival weren’t real. Spaceships aren’t real. But a new VFX video reveals lots of other fake elements in the movie, and you’ll be surprised. Most of them are incredibly subtle and simple. Just like the movie itself.
Director Denis Villeneuve is one step closer to getting his dream. He’s in early talks to direct Dune.
When it rains, it pours. Fast on the heels of the first Blade Runner 2049 trailer, we’ve got some more details on the making of this movie and brand new images.
Some things look familiar, some things look really different, and few things have changed a lot in this first tease from the sequel to Blade Runner.
It goes without saying that fans have lots of questions about next year’s Blade Runner sequel, Blade Runner 2049. How has that world changed? Who are Ryan Gosling and Jared Leto playing? And, if Deckard is still around, it’s pretty obvious he’s not a Replicant, right?
In exactly one year from today, the long-awaited (by some) sequel to Blade Runner will finally premiere. To commemorate the occasion Warner Bros. has announced the official title and released the this first behind the scenes photo... neither of which are actually that exciting.
Arrival is the kind of science fiction film we dream of. It’s got big stars, a bigger concept, and the longer it goes, the more it demands of its audience. The pacing is methodical, the story captivating, and filmmaking beautiful. You rarely have a clue where it’s going—but once it gets there, you won’t be able to get…
Frank Herbert’s Dune is one of the most iconic pieces of science fiction ever. It’s been adapted into live-action twice, with varying levels of success, but most fans agree no one has come close to getting it right yet. But maybe Denis Villeneuve can.
