The book that is to the fans of Blade Runner more known as the “Blade Runner Bible”, written by Paul M. Sammon IS a book that any fan of movies should read (to learn how hard making a movie really can be) and a book for fans of Blade Runner a must to have, trust me on this. You need to get this book.
If you have one of the previous two editions, I think you’ll want to buy this book anyway since the “Blade Runner Bible” now contains information on the next chapter of Blade Runner which is Blade Runner 2049

If you visit their homepage you’ll get to see things that is amazing and will make you get a very Blade Runner’ish feeling, they are not using any CGI and the film are being made by using miniatures, optical effects and practical effects, basically doing things the same way Blade Runner was made.
… The best thing is that the story is set in the Blade Runner universe
It is just another damp, rainy, and foggy night on the streets of the futuristic Los Angeles. Beneath the flashy neon signs and heavy traffic, scum of this megalopolis tries to make a living and hopefully survive to see another day. Criminals, junkies, prostitutes, punks… and one lonesome drug dealer in the middle of it all, fed up with this ever expanding city and lowlife parasites that inhabit it. He may be well on his way to leave it all behind, but fate has made other plans and his whole world will come crumbling down when a dirty cop with an agenda of his own enters his life.
The official trailer for Blade Runner 2049 was released today. Feel free to press play, watch the trailer.
Dave Bautista said in this interview that he thinks that Blade Runner 2049 will be better than Blade Runner and “answer some questions”.
