There is a Youtube content creator by the name of Tyler Knudsen who goes under the name of Cinema Tyler. His channel is dedicated to the art of filmmaking. He’s done so many videos on one of my favourite films 2001: A Space Odyssey starring Keir Dullea (you can click on his name to get to my site on him or click on the link in the sidebar….). This time Tyler covers the creation of the world of BLADE RUNNER 2049 starring our guy Harrison Ford. Please consider going over to his channel and supporting his content. He’s an amazing talent.



Another great interview with Harrison talking about BLADE RUNNER 2049 and the original BLADE RUNNER. Again being candid about his career and private life, Harrison is very praiseworthy of Ryan Gosling, Denis Villeneuve and the film, while remaining non-committal about his past with Ridley Scott. He also talks about Han Solo’s death and takes his hat off for Mark Hamill’s (Luke Skywalker) herculean task of keeping the STAR WARS franchise on the straight and narrow in light of the sudden passing of co-star Carrie Fisher (Leia Organa). All in all a wonderful interview.



Harrison sat down with PBS’ Charlie Rose to discuss BLADE RUNNER 2049 and bringing Rick Deckard back after thirty-five years. He also talks about flying, life and why Han Solo had to die. It’s a very revealing interview, which is a bit shocking for someone like Harrison who has guarded his privacy for so long.



In the press junket for BLADE RUNNER 2049, Harrison stopped by Live With Kelly & Ryan to discuss the film. He also dispelled any rumours of his return to the STAR WARS franchise as Han Solo saying the character is dead. I loved what he said about the “utility of the character.” Though I’m still not happy with STAR WARS VI: THE FORCE AWAKENS in that it wasn’t an original film, Harrison did finally get his wish to have Han killed off. In my mind though he’s still in his seat on the Millennium Falcon with Chewy galaxy hopping. Ah the memories. He also talked about his first role in DEAD HEAT ON A MERRY-GO-ROUND and the story about his being told he wasn’t a “star”. You can find the screencaps from that film in this post: “Dead Heat On A Merry-Go-Round” Screencaps .



Film reviewer Chris Stuckmann (click on his name to reach his Twitter account) has a review of BLADE RUNNER on his Youtube channel. He explains his need for multiple viewings in order to come to the conclusion the film is a masterpiece. My having seen it back in 1982 means I’ve known this for decades now. Please take a look at Chris’ review and form your own opinions, though I have a feeling you’ll come to the same conclusions. I will post his review of BLADE RUNNER 2049 when he uploads it.



John Rocha at Collider Video give us an excellent primer for BLADE RUNNER 2049 from the original 1982 film starring our guy Harrison. Here Rocha gives us a rundown of the first film directed by Ridley Scott. He covers mostly the main points, but is pretty good. I love his enthusiasm when talking about this film And of course he and Steve Morris did an excellent podcast for the first film that can be found in this post BLADE RUNNER PODCAST. Please check out that post for two hours of the most critical analysis I’ve seen on the film. And thanks to The Rocha Says.



Collider.com has an exclusive look at a short video that explains what happened between the original film to the new one. Director Denis Villeneuve introduces this video that is directed by Luke Scott who is the son of original BLADE RUNNER director Ridley Scott. This does not feature Harrison, rather Jared Leto and Benedict Wong.

Collider is happy to exclusively premiere a Blade Runner 2049 prequel short film “in-world” piece that explains what happened in the world of Blade Runner between the first movie, set in 2019, and this sequel, set in 2049. The short film “Nexus: 2036” takes place in the year 2036 and revolves around Jared Leto’s character, Niander Wallace. In this short, directed by Luke Scott (Morgan), Wallace introduces a new line of “perfected” replicants called the Nexus 9, seeking to get the prohibition on replicants repealed. This no doubt has serious ramifications that will be crucial to the plot of Blade Runner 2049.

At Comic-Con this summer, Warner Bros. unveiled a teaser that offered a bullet point rundown of the events that have occurred in the Blade Runner timeline since Ridley Scott’s original movie. This “in-world” piece is one of three short films that will debut ahead of Blade Runner 2049, which will further flesh out the Blade Runner universe with even more information. In 2023, government authorities legislated an indefinite “prohibition” on replicant production, as a year prior a massive EMP detonated on the West Coast and is pinned on Replicants. So in this Wallace piece, we’ll see the beginnings of the new Replicants that are created after the prohibition is lifted.

In Blade Runner 2049, 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.



There is an amazing podcast called The Cine-Files featuring filmmaker Steve Morris and media presenter and actor John Rocha. Throughout over fifty podcasts they’ve covered some classic films in their discussions about film, filmmaking, and the overall enjoyment of film. A couple of weeks ago they did one on Harrison’s film BLADE RUNNER in advance of the sequel BLADE RUNNER 2049 to come out in October starring Harrison who will reprise his role of Rick Deckard and Ryan Gosling. This podcast is a good primer for your enjoyment of Ridley Scott’s cult film also starring Rutger Hauer (Roy Batty), Sean Young (Rachel Tyrell), Joe Turkel (Eldon Tyrell), Daryl Hannah (Pris), Joanna Cassidy (Zhora), Edward James Olmos (Gaff), M. Emmett Walsh (Bryant), James Hong (Hannibal Chew), William Sanderson (J. F. Sebastian), Morgan Paull (Holden) and the late Brion James (Leon). The incredible score was composed and conducted by Vangelis, and features stunning visuals from Douglas Trumbull (“2001: A Space Odyssey”) and Syd Mead. In this podcast both Morris and Rocha cover the background of the film’s production, plus the legacy of this film including the various editions Ridley Scott made. I’ll include all links to Steve and John’s social media pages after the jump. . John and Steve have also done podcasts on STAR WARS directed by George Lucas, and their very first podcast was dedicated to the Steven Spielberg film and Harrison Ford classic, RAIDERS OF THE LOST ARK, both of which I will post here at a later date, for now please sit back for about two hours and enjoy this aural pleasure
