Hello, fam! It’s good to have you back. We are discussing a cult classic, Blade Runner. Since its adoption by Amazon Studios, news and rumors have surfaced.
The original Blade Runner came out in 1982. It is based on the novel Do Androids Dream of Electric Sheep? by Philip K. Dick novel. It got published in 1968.
The movie included Harrison Ford as Rick Deckard, Rutger Hauer as Roy Batty, and Daryl Hannah as its star cast. The story takes place in 2019 Los Angeles. In this film, the Tyrell Corporation is manufacturing humans to serve in numerous space colonies.
These synthetic humans are called replicants who are bio-engineered with the sole purpose of providing labor and nothing else. In this 1982 Blade Runner, a group of fugitive replicants led by Roy Batty returns to Earth and are pursued by a cop named Harrison Ford.
The original Blade Runner was not a financial success, but it was so well received by the general public that it has now become a cult classic.
Since 1982, multiple movies have been released in the Balde Runner Universe, some set in a far dystopian world, whereas some were animes.
It will be interesting to see what the upcoming Blade Runner 2099 will have for its fans. Here we have compiled all the facts and information about it. Keep on reading to learn more.
Blade Runner 2099 Will Not Be a Movie
The Balde Runner 2047 came out on 6th October 2017 and speaking in financial terms, it had performed poorly. The Blade Runner 2049, despite having a decent budget, its performance at the box office was considered poor.
So it’s apparent that if Blade Runner 2099 is released, it will be a full-fledged live-action TV series. And it does feel like a safer bet from the producer’s point of view. The main strength of this franchise is its worldbuilding, which means it has a lot of content that only needs to be managed effectively.
Bringing Blade Runner 2099 to life as a series rather than a film is not only a safer bet, but it will also offer the showrunners more opportunity to play to their strengths, especially character development.
