The original Blade Runner was a beautifully dark look at the possible future relationships between humans and robots. It took place in 2019 where robots, called replicants, had become indistinguishable from humans and had a penchant for violence. Because of their advancements, they were only allowed to operate on colonies in space. In the movie, Harrison Ford played a Blade Runner, a specialized police officer charged with hunting down and eliminating any Replicants who made it to earth. In the 2017 reboot, Blade Runner 2049 ($TBA), Harrison Ford is joined by Ryan Gossling who plays a modern day Blade Runner. Other cast notables include Robin Wright, Dave Bautista, Jared Leto, and Edward James Olmos. Blade Runner 2049 will be hitting theaters on Oct 6, 2017.
About Lee King
I live in a great city outside of Philadelphia and run Muted in my free time. Being close to a number of large metropolitan areas gives me a lot of inspiration for menswear and gear. Originally from Pittsburgh as well as a Suburban Detroit transplant I went to Michigan State University and spent most of my career managing global IT services for Pharmaceuticals. Besides mens clothing I enjoy, bonsai, my family, dogs and hanging by the pool.
