EW – It’s time to see what Rick Deckard has been up to for the last 34 years
It’s been a long wait since 1982, but now we have our first real tantalizing look at Blade Runner 2049, the sequel to the classic sci-fi film directed by Ridley Scott — adapted from Philip K. Dick’s Do Androids Dream of Electric Sheep? — about Rick Deckard, a “blade runner,” who must hunt down rogue replicants (human-seeming androids).
For devotees of Scott’s film, this announcement piece for 2049 — directed by Denis Villeneuve (Arrival) with Scott as executive producer — should put any concerns they might have had to rest. Just look at this thing: That mysterious yellow landscape! Those crowded and neon-rimmed streets of Los Angeles! Ryan Gosling’s great-looking coat! Rick Deckard in a gray T-shirt!
Sure, we don’t totally know what is going on, but here’s the synopsis courtesy of Alcon Entertainment: Thirty years after the events of the first film, a new blade runner, LAPD Officer K (Ryan Gosling), unearths a long-buried secret that has the potential to plunge what’s left of society into chaos. K’s discovery leads him on a quest to find Rick Deckard (Harrison Ford), a former LAPD blade runner who has been missing for 30 years.
The film also stars Ana de Armas, Robin Wright, Jared Leto, Barkhad Abdi, Lennie James, Mackenzie Davis, and Sylvia Hoeks, and will arrive in theaters on Oct. 6, 2017.

COMINGSOON.NET – Harrison Ford and Ryan Gosling want you to win a trip to the Blade Runner 2 set
Alcon Entertainment’s Blade Runner sequel is now filming in Budapest and there’s a chance that you could experience it firsthand. Ryan Gosling is the host of a new Omaze video that features both he and Harrison Ford presenting a special message from the Blade Runner 2 set. As has been done in the past on productions like Star Wars: The Force Awakens and Star Trek Beyond, Omaze has a new campaign designed to raise money for a trio of important organizations: The Enough Project, Imerman Angels and The Hummingbirds Foundation. In today’s video, Gosling focuses on The Enough Project but, if past Omaze campaigns are any indication, we’re likely to see additional videos focused on the other two.
TRAVEL AOL UK – Harrison Ford invited a lucky teenage girl to fly with him in his DeHavilland Beaver on Thursday.
The Star Wars actor was at the AirVenture Oshkosh 2016 air show in Wisconsin when 16-year-old Jodie Gawthrop won a national content through the Young Eagles programme, which introduces children to flying.
Ford was the scheme’s chairman from 2004 to 2009.
Following the 15-minute flight, Ford told the Associated Press that he and Gawthrop talked shop in the air.
“It was really, really fun. We spent some time talking about the airplane and what I was doing and going through the checklists,” Ford said.
“Jodie actually asked me if celebrities use checklists. I said, ‘absolutely. They need them.'”
