This sequel to Ridley Scott's landmark 1982 science-fiction film picks up the story 30 years later, giving viewers another detailed look at a future in which humanity live in polluted, overcrowded cities and rely on androids known as "replicants" for slave labor. In 2049 Los Angeles, K (Ryan Gosling) works as a "blade runner," a specialized law-enforcement agent dedicated to tracking down and killing rogue replicants. But when he uncovers a shocking conspiracy involving the robot laborers, he searches for the one person who might have answers: a former blade runner named Rick Deckard (Harrison Ford), who vanished decades earlier.
