Ryan Gosling in Blade Runner 2049

I loved Blade Runner 2049, box office disappointment that it was, and currently have it as my #2 film of 2017.  I can’t wait to own this one and dive into the special features when it hits stores in January.  Full details below (you can read my Blade Runner 2049 Review here).

Warner Brothers today announced the release of Blade Runner 2049 on 4K Ultra HD Blu-ray Combo Pack, Blu-ray 3D Combo Pack, Blu-ray Combo Pack, DVD and Digital HD. From Oscar-nominated director Denis Villeneuve (Arrival) comes Alcon Entertainment’s science fiction thriller Blade Runner 2049.  

You can own it early on Digital on December 26, with the Blu-ray debuting on January 16.

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.
