Denis Villeneuve's "Blade Runner 2049" has first art

Get ready for Denis Villeneuve's take on the 1982 sci-fi classic. Today we go a title, "Blade Runner 2049" and the above title art which looks like a beautifully retro 80s logo. Bring it on.

The cast includes stalwarts such as Ryan Gosling, Harrison Ford and Jared Leto and Robin Wright. Also let us not forget that the great Roger Deakins is the cinematographer for this film. Will he finally win his first Oscar for this? Much to get excited about.

Up next for Villeneuve is "Arrival" which I reviewed at TIFF. Here's a snippet:

"Toronto was a kind of homecoming for Canadian boy Denis Villeneuve whose “Arrival” had very successful showings at both Telluride and Venice just a week prior. Amy Adams plays Louise Banks, a linguist twho is recruited by the military after enormous Alien pods show up across the globe. Many countries are prepared for war, but Louise believes that the visitors might actually be on earth for non-violent reasons. Adams, in one of her very best performances, gives a touching and rewarding performance in a film that feels like a better version of Christopher Nolan’s well-known sci-fi blockbusters. The sentimentality is somewhat stripped down for a more concrete and profound look at the ties that bind us all on earth. It’s a thought-provoking adventure that isn’t about war, but communication instead. Villeneuve once again proves to be the real deal. The 49-year-old Quebecois filmmaker is building up a solid, loyal fan-base that could one day rival Nolan’s. The fact that his next movie is “Blade Runner 2” only gets us more excited about his future."

“Blade Runner 2049” opens on October 6, 2017.
