Blade Runner 2049 Runtime Confirmed

Director Denis Villeneuve likes a slow burn in his movies, so they tend to be on the longer side. That not a bad thing because he knows how to craft a world and it looks like we get to spend plenty of time in the upcoming Blade Runner 2049. According to Collider the official runtime has been released and it's considerably longer than the first Blade Runner 2049.

The official runtime has been confirmed at 2 hours and 32 minutes without credits.

Blade Runner 2049

The first Blade Runner was 1 hour and 57 minutes. Villeneuve has a lot of ground to cover when it comes to catching everyone up on the world. That's why we're getting three short films before the release on top of this nice, long runtimne.

Summary: 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.

Blade Runner 2049, directed by Denis Villeneuve, stars Harrison Ford, Ryan Gosling, Ana de Armas, Robin Wright, and Jared Leto. It will be released on October 6th.
