Blade Runner 2049

Go Inside the 'Blade Runner 2049' Comic-Con Virtual Reality Experience

“Blade Runner 2049” was one of the most prominent pop culture pieces at this year’s San Diego Comic-Con, and Alcon Entertainment’s experience was not to be missed.

Luckily for those who were unable to attend the 2017 convention, Variety‘s Audrey Cleo made sure to stop by the Harrison Ford and Ryan Gosling sequel’s set up to go inside the world of replicants via VR.

Fans were invited — after waiting in line, of course — to take a seat in a mini movie theater where each con-goer was equipped with a headset. Action shots of Gosling, Ford, and their replicant rivals were then streamed straight into the brains of their fans. Following the VR tour, actors brought “Blade Runner’s” depiction of a dystopian Los Angeles to life with a walk-through complete with props from the 1982 original film, acid rain, and even udon noodles.
