The Sinatra hologram in Harrison's penthouse apartment was an homage to producer Cynthia Yorkin's late husband, Bud Yorkin, who directed Sinatra in his first film, "Come Blow Your Horn." See more »
We hear a voice saying "see-see-see-pee" CCCP. But CCCP is written in kiril alphabet and should be read "es-es-es-er" (Soyuz Sovetskikh Sotsialisticheskikh Respublik) . At least "see-see-see-are" would be okay. See more »
I hope you don't mind me taking the liberty. I was careful not to drag in... any dirt.

There are no opening credits, and the title proper is not shown until the ending credits. See more »
The film's IMAX release presented the film open-matte, at an aspect ratio of 1.90:1, meaning there was more picture information visible in the top and bottom of the frame than in normal theaters and on home video. See more »
Could This Be The Straw That Broke The Camel's Back?
Could the unneeded and dreaded sequel to 1982's Blade Runner be the sequel that finally breaks the camel's back and stops people from feeding the Hollywood sequel machine? It well could be.
With the disappointing box office tally despite all the hype and 11/10 payola reviews deployed by obedient critic skin jobs this may finally be the crescendo in the rebellion by audiences that started with rubbish like Ghostbusters 2016, Independence Day Resurgence and other rubbish like Kong 10 (or was that 11?).
What is insane, however, is that this inconclusive, no-ending, clichéd film is currently rated higher than its masterpiece prequel. Are people for real or is there payola on IMDb too? BR2049 had no acting, super silly script, stupid lines like "is your dog real? Why don't you ask it?" (compare to the context in which this was asked about the owl in the original and the sharp answer from Rachel) and people are cluing in that we should stop helping Hollywood be unoriginal.
I know Hollywood has ten silly Star Wars and 6 retarded Marvel films coming out in the next two years, but maybe just maybe BR2049 finally woke up people to support originality instead of stupidity. Sure, I agree that the hologram chick was sexy, but is that enough to go watch a movie that has scavengers throwing an anchor at a flying vehicle and pulling it down while a detective sits inside?
I know the rating for this sequel will cool down and end up somewhere in the 7 range, but people need to stop being douches and not attend boring slugs like Star Wars 8,9,10,11, ... 25 and studios need to stop manipulating reviews and ratings and take a hint from the market which really says it all in the context of BR 2049.
