Blade Runner 2049 scores an R-Rating

August 15th, 2017 by Marc Comments

It looks like the Blade Runner sequel is going to be hitting hard for the adult market and won’t be watering down the sex and violence.

The movie, Blade Runner 2049, will officially be rater R in the US, presumably hitting a 15 or 18 rating in the UK.

According to a bulletin from the Motion Picture Association of America the movie attained the rating for “violence, some sexuality, nudity and language.”

The original movie in 1982 was an R-rated outing so it looks like we can expect something close in tone. We’re excited… are you?

Thirty years after the events of the first film, a new blade runner, LAPD Officer K (Ryan Gosling), unearths a long-buried secret that has the potential to plunge what’s left of society into chaos. K’s discovery leads him on a quest to find Rick Deckard (Harrison Ford), a former LAPD blade runner who has been missing for 30 years.

From executive producer Ridley Scott and director Denis Villeneuve, #BladeRunner2049 stars Ryan Gosling, Harrison Ford, Ana De Armas, MacKenzie Davis, Sylvia Hoeks, Lennie James, Carla Juri, Robin Wright, Dave Bautista and Jared Leto.

An Alcon Entertainment film, Warner Bros. will release Blade Runner 2049 in theaters and IMAX on October 6th, 2017.

Marc is a self-confessed nerd. Ever since seeing Star Wars for the first time around 1979 he’s been an unapologetic fan of the Wars and still believes, with Clone Wars and now Underworld, we are yet to see the best Star Wars. He’s a dad of two who now doesn’t have the time (or money) to collect the amount of toys, comics, movies and books he once did, much to the relief of his long-suffering wife. In the real world he’s a graphic designer. He started Following the Nerd because he was tired of searching a million sites every day for all the best news that he loves and decided to create one place where you can go to get the whole lot. Secretly he longs to be sitting in the cockpit of his YT-1300 Corellian Transport ship with his co-pilot Chewie, roaming the universe, waiting for his next big adventure, but feels just at home watching cartoons with his kids….
