'Blade Runner 2049'

Helmed by Canadian filmmaker Denis Villeneuve and co-produced by British sci-fi master Ridley Scott, "Blade Runner 2049" takes place in a dystopian future where robots are indistinguishable from humans.

In addition to actor Harrison Ford reprising his role from the 1982 original, "La La Land" star Ryan Gosling and "Wonder Woman" warrior Robin Wright will also star.

According to Gosling, the film was one of the most challenging of his career. "It’s like three movies that I usually make in one," he told GQ. "Just in terms of the length and just the whole scope and experience. I’ve never done something so shrouded in secrecy or where there’s so much anticipation."

"Blade Runner 2049" is slated for release on Oct. 6, 2017.
