There's so much speculation surrounding the much-anticipated sequel, so I took an educated guess as to what's going to happen in the forthcoming movie. Am I correct? Who knows? But I think I speak for everyone when I say, I just don't want it to be crap.

Set 30 years ahead from the first film, Officer K (Ryan Gosling) is a blade runner who spends his days catching rogue replicants. That is until he discovers a secret that threatens the future of what is left of society. He then sets off to track down Deckard (Harrison Ford), a former blade runner who has been on the run for years, in search of answers.

Firstly, I think Gosling is an excellent choice. We know he can handle his neo-noir, he's a creatively intelligent fella, and I think he probably has a huge amount of respect for the original film. However, he does like to be moody, and it's entirely possible that his performance will mirror Fords, which will be a little awkward considering they are co-stars.

Bringing Deckard back for such an important role is an interesting choice. Some people think the film couldn't be done without his presence, others think he should have been left in the past. Director Denis Villeneuve has confirmed that the "Is Deckard a Replicant?" mystery will be solved in 2049 - and whilst Phillip K Dick's novel that inspired the film suggests that he is, many of those small details were lost in the 1982 film, leaving the narrative pretty open.

Not much is known about the plot of the film yet, apart from it being set in a Mad Max-style wasteland. Villeneuve has suggested themes of global warming and environmental disaster, explaining the barren desert we see in the trailer: "The climate has gone berserk -- the ocean, the rain, the snow is all toxic." This tells us the smog and rain seen in Deckard's days has finally taken its toll on the earth.

Other cast members include Robin Wright, Jared Leto, and Dave Bautista. I can definitely see Leto and Bautista becoming rogue robots, with the former wrestler being the perfect build for a bot, and the Thirty Seconds to Mars frontman having recently proved his villain credentials in Suicide Squad. No stranger to playing a 'Badass Bitch from Hell' kind of role, I want to see Wright as the tough boss of The Tyrell Corporation, who I have a feeling will take a much larger role in this film (maybe something to do with the horrors of capitalism and big companies?).

Villeneuve picked up the directing hat after Scott dropped it, which naturally is leaving everyone waiting with baited breath as to whether 2049 will live up to its predecessor. With Prisoners, Sicario, and the stunning Arrival under his belt, Villeneuve has heart, which is the key for making a film that is about androids, human.
