"The story, the themes, the stunning visual environments... it was a pleasure getting back to the world of Blade Runner again," begins "Deckard" actor Harrison Ford. "I think it's kind of fun to play a character 30 years later."

"Blade Runner revolutionized the way we view science fiction," says director Denis Villeneuve. "I never felt that much pressure on my shoulders thinking that Ridley Scott would see this movie."

"The first movie was always meant to be a standalone film, but there's always more to tell than two hours would allow," concludes original director Ridley Scott, clearly voicing his approval of Villeneuve's arresting new vision.
