The original Blade Runner was a beautifully dark look at the possible future relationships between humans and robots. It took place in 2019 where robots, called replicants, had become indistinguishable from humans and had a penchant for violence.

In the movie, Harrison Ford played a Blade Runner, a specialized police officer charged with hunting down and eliminating any Replicants who made it to earth. In the 2017 reboot, Blade Runner 2049 ($TBA), Harrison Ford is joined by Ryan Gossling who plays a modern day Blade Runner. Other cast notables include Robin Wright, Dave Bautista, Jared Leto, and Edward James Olmos. Blade Runner 2049 will be hitting theaters on Oct 6, 2017.
