When the first Blade Runner hit theaters in 1982, it was practically revolutionary in its use of effects, both practical and CGI. It inspired a number of filmmakers to do the same, which only places more pressure on the shoulders of Denis Villeneuve’s long awaited sequel, Blade Runner 2049. How would his sequel, which has far more technical wizardry at its disposal, handle the use of those effects? Villeneuve has no major taste for CGI himself, and his Blade Runner sequel went for the practical effect as much as it possibly could. In fact, Villeneuve can count on one hand how many times he used green screen while filming.
