About BLADE RUNNER 2049
No film has defined our vision of the future like BLADE RUNNER, Ridley Scott’s 1982 masterpiece. Now we return to that future, picking up the philosophical and existential threads left dangling thirty-five years ago, in BLADE RUNNER 2049.
Detective K (Ryan Gosling, LA LA LAND) is a Blade Runner with the LAPD, hunting down illegal replicants. He stumbles upon a secret so huge, so deadly, that it could spell the very end of humanity itself. He goes in search of Rick Deckard (Harrison Ford, STAR WARS), a Blade Runner who has gone into hiding, who may hold the key to saving the species.
Making a sequel to one of the great science fiction films of all time is no small task, but thankfully it’s in the hands of a filmmaker who is up to it – the incredibly talented Denis Villeneuve, director of Best Picture nominee ARRIVAL and the astonishingly creepy PRISONERS. Villeneuve honors the groundbreaking cyber-noir aesthetic of BLADE RUNNER while updating it and making the world his own, giving us a fresh look at this familiar future.
An epic three decades in the making, BLADE RUNNER 2049 proves that there’s room in Hollywood for thoughtful, exciting science fiction that tackles the big questions facing humanity – all while looking cool as hell.
About The Sound of Science
A unique collaboration fostered by Golden Hornet Composer Laboratory, which will consist of eight pieces of music written by composers from around the world. Paired with scientists of their own choosing, composers create music inspired by and reflective of the individual’s scientific practice. Each piece will be performed by Jeffrey Zeigler (Kronos Quartet). Curated by Zeigler and Graham Reynolds. With your help, the results will premiere in Austin, NYC, Mexico City, and beyond.
