  • Blade Runner 2049 – From 6 Oct

    Hotly anticipated doesn’t really cover it. The frenzied excitement over the release of the follow-up to Ridley Scott’s landmark sci-fi film has reached unprecedented levels among the many fans of the cult classic. The fact that Dennis Villenueve – director of Sicario and hot on the heels of Oscar-nominated Arriva – is at the helm has only heightened expectations. Add to that a leading role for Ryan Gosling and a returning Harrison Ford and we have a contender for film of the year on our hands. Catch it in all its IMAX glory from 6 October.
