Later we’ll discuss new trailers including Pacific Rim: Uprising and Star Wars: The Last Jedi, as well as some listener questions, and much more!
Blade Runner 2049
The sequel to Ridley Scott’s fabled classic follows a young blade runner on his journey across the dystopian wasteland as he tracks down a fellow blade runner, who has been missing for decades. The film stars Ryan Gosling, Harrison Ford, Robin Wright, and Jared Leto.
Ghost in the Shell (1995)
Based off the acclaimed manga, Ghost in the Shell follows a cyborg cop who attempts to track down a notorious hacker. The anime was very clearly inspired by the original Blade Runner, but has also influenced many other films itself.
