Blade Runner 2049 is one of the prettiest movies you’ll ever see, so it’s a pleasure to share some of the concept art that went into the film’s creation.
The pieces you’re seeing below are by artists George Hull, Emmanuel Shiu, Jeremy Paillotin, Mike Hill, Dan Baker, Madhav Kumar and Victor Martinez.
There is unrest in the Galactic Senate. Several thousand solar systems have declared their intentions to leave the Republic. This separatist movement, under the leadership of the mysterious Count Dooku, has made it difficult for the limited number of Jedi Knights to maintain peace and order in the galaxy. Senator Amidala, the former Queen of Naboo, is returning to the Galactic Senate to vote on the critical issue of creating an ARMY OF THE REPUBLIC to assist the overwhelmed Jedi…
It’s straight up one of the prettiest looking horror movies I think I’ve ever seen. The pacing’s a little clumsy, but it completely owns its melodramatic, hyper-theatrical aesthetic in a way that feels really exhilarating.
You giggled to yourself as you watched Sebastian saunter in front of you, guiding you to your trailer at three in the morning. You and Seb had joined the cast at the local karaoke bar after the excruciatingly long fight scene the two of you had shoot. It felt nice to drink away the stress and you hadn’t exactly anticipated on drinking as much as you had but you were no where near as drunk as Seb, because the man was plastered beyond belief. The two of you had stayed much later than the rest of the crew which was probably why Sebastian kept drinking.
You were grateful that you weren’t needed till six for a night shoot because you were pretty sure that you would have died and put a letter in for resignation if you had to be up within the next few hours. You shook your head as he stumbled into Scarlet’s trailer which caused a loud bang that everyone could probably hear. “Seb, honey, shush!” You picked up your pace a little and grabbed him by the shoulders.
“It’s not my fault that everyone wants to go to bed! I’m not even tired, let’s keep drinking!” He exclaimed, causing you to burst out in laughter. “What? Don’t laugh-laugh at me. I’m wide awakee, love.”
You nodded, “I’m sure you are. Come on, let’s get in my trailer so you’re not so loud and wake them up.” You guided him up the four steps and into the moderate sized living space you would be in for the next few months.
“Are you trying to seduce me, [y/n]?”
You laughed, “What? No, honey, I’m not.” You set him down on your little loveseat and giggled at his pout.
“Why not? Am I not good looking enough?”
Setting a water bottle in his hand, you smirked, “You’re beautiful, gorgeous, Seb.”
Sebastian shook his head, “No, you’re beautiful and gorgeous.” He gave you a silly smile, “Prettiest thing in this movie.”
You were very amused, Sebastian was fairly professional during the day and you two weren’t exactly close like he was with your costars. Tonight was definitely the night that the two of you would break the ice and get friendly but this was taking it a different level. “You sure about that? Scarlet’s pretty hot and Elizabeth isn’t too bad looking either.”
He shook his head, grabbing for your hands to sit next to him. “No, no. You’re very nice to look at. I’d rather look at you than them, but don’t think I’m attracted to you just for your looks now. I’m not shallow like that.” Sebastian hiccuped, giving you such a dorky smile. “You sure are pretty, [y/n].”
You whispered a Romanian phrase and watched his face light up, “Yes, darling, I can speak your native tongue.” You had spent a few years studying abroad in Romania before you managed to go into the acting scene. Smirking, you tapped him on the nose, “There’s a few things you don’t know about me, Seb.”
“I think I’m in love.”
“No, you’re just drunk.”
“I don’t think so.” He cooed, “I’m going to call my mother right now and tell her that I’ve found my soulmate.”
