Following the huge success of the 1982 hit movie Blade Runner, there were millions of fans around the world who were calling for a sequel to get made and those fans continued to call for a Blade Runner sequel for many more years to come. However, when it was recently announced that we were going to get the movie Blade Runner 2049, many of those fans had actually lost interest in it and were unsure if it was even needed.
Now though, following the release of Blade Runner 2049, it is fair to say that the decision to make the sequel was a very good one indeed, as it has received huge praise from fans and critics alike and has been described by some as being one of the greatest sci-fi movies of all time. Actor Jared Leto has a big role in Blade Runner 2049, while Harrison Ford returns to the franchise, and Jared has taken the time to heap praise on Harrison.
Leto said, "There were moments that I had with Harrison on the set that I'll carry with me the rest of my life. Very emotional, powerful moments; very transcendent moments. And it was humbling to be a part of and something I'll never forget. Harrison gave me a wonderful gift in the faith that he had in me."
He added, "He's not the kind, when you're seeing pages and pages of dialogue, you're sitting across from one of the biggest legends in the history of film, and to feel his confidence and his faith in me was a beautiful thing. I mean he is just - I don't have enough to say about him, he's an absolute legend and he's an inspiration to be around. And he's a force of nature."
