Blade Runner 2049 is a sequel to the 1982 film from Ridley Scott. It centered on Harrison Ford’s Rick Deckard tracking down escaped replicants. While it was far from a box office success, the movie has gone on to grow in stature over the years, and was even selected for preservation in the National Film Registry by the Library of Congress back in 1993.
