It’s Tuesday and as promised last week the future is upon us. Blade Runner 2049 is out today and Best Buy is spoiling us with gorgeous steelbooks. In the first time I can remember Best Buy has two different steelie designs, one for the regular blu-ray and the other for the 4K.

Officer K (Ryan Gosling), a new blade runner for the Los Angeles Police Department, unearths a long-buried secret that has the potential to plunge what’s left of society into chaos. His discovery leads him on a quest to find Rick Deckard (Harrison Ford), a former blade runner who’s been missing for 30 years. – Warner Bros. Pictures

Like It last week Blade Runner 2049 is one of my favorite movies of 2017. The original Blade Runner is a thought provoking and for the time visually stunning film. Blade Runner 2049 blows the original out of the water. To me there is without a doubt that Blade Runner 2049 is the most visually stunning and beautiful looking film of the year. On top of the visuals the story itself is far more compelling and thought provoking than the original. Harrison Ford is back and he is just as good as he was in the original. Ryan Gosling is phenomenal as Agent K, you really feel for his character and care about him. It’s very rare for a sequel/reboot to be better than the original film but Blade Runner 2049 is superior in every way.
