It’s the year of darkness! Oh, no wait, that’s 2029, according to The Terminator. But yeah! 2019! When Blade Runner is set. And also Zardoz, apparently.

Alternate universe, perchance?  Why is that such a difficult concept to grasp?  Maybe any given film is set in a universe that's alternate to our own.  In fact, I'd say that's a fact.  Presumably there wasn't an actual man/replicant named Deckard within our own reality.  It's fiction.  The course of that universe was not the same as our own and therefore, events and history would not align with our own.  Everything depicted on film is factual?  No, it's fictional.  What a silly thought it would be, to think that films are rooted in fact (unless your name's Mike Leigh).  Yes, very silly indeed.

Honestly though I don't really view Blade Runner as looking to make an exact prediction either, its as much interested in creating a noirish exotic world as anything rather than 2001 like attempts at realism.

That's one area I think the sequel obviously differed in style attempting to be a bit more down to earth.

My previous post was nubbins and I am a great big gubbins.  The best course of action is to ignore me, I generally find.

This post is nonexistent.

Syd Mead's designs for the film were very detailed and extensively thought through, based on his earlier career as an industrial designer and projections of existing technology.That's one of the reasons the world the film inhabits is so believable, despite having flying cars and bio-engineered slaves.

It's November when the film is set, so there's still 11 months for Elon to knock out a flying car.

Its believable and more down to earth than something such as say Dark City but I think beyond Meads designs the film is also aiming at a kind of romantic noirish clutter(didn't Scott use a Moebius book as an influence?) rather than only making a realistic prediction of the future.

That does as said I think make it easier to view the film as a kind of alternative future.

But they’re leaving it a bit late for off-world colonies and sentient android slaves.

Another one.

Quote
In 2019 the world has been devastated by nuclear war. The resulting radiation prevents humans from procreating. A group of survivors are sent in to New York, which is now under control by a band of savages conducting cruel human experiments on survivors, to rescue a woman who has mysteriously remained fertile.

Crikey!

I'm sure Elon's working on those too - retasking his submarine team to fitting Siri into a RealDoll.

Artificial owl - It's Blade Runner, not Clash Of The Titans!

The main difference between "our" 2019 reality and Blade Runner's is that in ours Vangelis is a completely spent force while in Blade Runner's he's writing great soundtrack music.

Ah thanks, that explains a picture I saw on facebook earlier - 3 images of 3 films with 2019 written in the corner of each.  I assumed they were sequels that were coming out this year, thought "those are gonna be shit I reckon", and carried on scrolling.

If Blade Runner is now, shouldn’t Ryan Gosling not be yet?

That would also mean Sylvia Hoeks, Ana de Armas, Mackenzie Davis and Carla Juri wouldn't be yet either, which wouldn't be fair on anyone.
