Warner Bros., Sony Pictures, and Alcon Entertainment have canceled the red carpet for Blade Runner 2049, the long-awaited sequel to Ridley Scott’s original classic Blade Runner.
The red carpet’s cancellation comes in the wake of last night’ tragedy in Las Vegas. The red carpet was originally set to take place at 7 p.m. on Tuesday night at the Dolby Theatre on Hollywood Blvd. and to be followed by an after-party behind the El Capitan Theatre.
WB, Sony, and Alcon released an official statement:
“In light of the tragic events of last night, Warner Bros. Pictures, Sony Pictures and Alcon Entertainment are cancelling the red carpet for tomorrow’s screening of Blade Runner 2049. We join the rest of the country in sending heartfelt thoughts and prayers to all those affected by this tragedy.”
Blade Runner 2049 is directed by Denis Villeneuve. The film stars Ryan Gosling, Harrison Ford, Ana de Armas, Sylvia Hoeks, Robin Wright, Mackenzie Davis, Carla Juri, Lennie James, with Dave Bautista and Jared Leto. Here’s the official synopsis:
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 hits theaters October 6, 2017.
