The Blade Runner 2049 cast walks the red carpet for the premiere of the film in Tokyo, Japan on Tuesday.
The film serves as a sequel to the original 1982 Blade Runner which also starred Harrison Ford as Rick Deckard. The sequel takes place 30 years after the first film and follows a new blade runner, LAPD Officer K (Ryan Gosling), as he discovers a secret that could have catastrophic consequences. He must find Deckard, a former blade runner who has been missing for 30 years, to save society from chaos.
Fans of the original film were skeptical of a sequel living up to the original, but critics have given the film a 91 percent on Rotten Tomatoes. Photos by Keizo Mori/UPI
