Having been known as either Blade Runner 2 or simply ‘the Blade Runner sequel’ up until now, the follow-up to Ridley Scott’s iconic 1982 movie has finally been given an official title.

From this day forward, the sequel to Blade Runner will be known as Blade Runner 2049. Alcon Entertainment and Warner Bros. Pictures announced the title today.
