Ridley Scott's two-time Oscar-nominated sci-fi thriller Blade Runner takes place in a dark, decaying 2019 Los Angeles. The film profiles a "blade runner" named Rick Deckard (Harrison Ford) who's tasked with assassinating androids masked as humans, a.k.a. replicants. But while on his hunt, he encounters a replicant named Rachel who conveys human emotion and causes Rick to question his mission and the future he thought he understood. In October 2017, an upcoming film set 30 years after Blade Runner — aptly titled Blade Runner 2049 — will storm theaters. It's directed by Denis Villeneuve and stars Ryan Gosling, Robin Wright, Jared Leto, and in his original role, Harrison Ford.
