Friday 15th December 2017
See what critics are calling "the best movie of the year" when Blade Runner 2049 arrives onto 4K Ultra HD Blu-ray, Blu-ray 3D Combo Pack, Blu-ray and DVD and Digital HD 5th February 2018 from Sony Pictures Home Entertainment.
From Oscar-nominated director Denis Villeneuve (Arrival) comes science fiction thriller Blade Runner 2049. Sure as it is to delight Blade Runner fans, this stunningly elegant follow-up doesn't depend on having seen the original.
The film stars Oscar nominees Ryan Gosling (La La Land) as K, and Harrison Ford (the Star Wars films, Witness), reprising the role of Rick Deckard. The main international cast also includes Ana de Armas (War Dogs), Sylvia Hoeks (Renegades), Robin Wright (Wonder Woman), Mackenzie Davis (The Martian), Carla Juri (Brimstone), and Lennie James (The Walking Dead), with Dave Bautista (the Guardians of the Galaxy films) and Oscar winner Jared Leto (Dallas Buyers Club).
Blade Runner 2049 was produced by Oscar nominees Andrew A. Kosove & Broderick Johnson (The Blind Side) and three time Emmy winner Bud Yorkin & Cynthia Sikes Yorkin. Multiple Oscar nominee Ridley Scott (The Martian, Gladiator), who directed the first Blade Runner, is an executive producer. Bill Carraro served as executive producer and unit production manager.
4K Ultra HD showcases 4K resolution with High Dynamic Range (HDR) and a wider colour spectrum, offering consumers brighter, deeper, more lifelike colors for a home entertainment viewing experience like never before.
The Blu-ray discs of Blade Runner 2049 will feature a Dolby Atmos® soundtrack remixed specifically for the home theater environment to place and move audio anywhere in the room, including overhead. To experience Dolby Atmos at home, a Dolby Atmos enabled AV receiver and additional speakers are required, or a Dolby Atmos enabled sound bar; however, Dolby Atmos soundtracks are also fully backward compatible with traditional audio configurations and legacy home entertainment equipment.
Three decades after the events of the first film, a new blade runner, LAPD Officer K, 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, a former LAPD blade runner who has been missing for 30 years.
