Ridley Scott's last adventure into a VR related movie was with Alien Covenant. Now, Blade Runner 2049 is getting some VR treatment during Comic-con this month.
Blade Runner 2049 experience begins as guests enter through a gallery of art from “Blade Runner 2049.” An Oculus VR experience will immerse visitors in the world of the film. VR guests will walk into a neon-lit Los Angeles street scene, where they should be prepared to experience what our potential future holds, including impromptu tests to determine if they are humans...or replicants.
Located across the street from the Convention Center, where Comic-Con will be in full swing, the Blade Runner 2049 Experience will run from 10:00 a.m. – 7:00 p.m. on Thursday and Friday; 9:00 a.m. to 7:00 p.m. on Saturday; and 10:00 a.m. – 6:00 p.m. on Sunday. Guests can register to enter at a specific appointment time or choose to wait in line; however, appointments can only be made for the same day. Admission is free.
The Blade Runner 2049 movie will open on October 6, 2017, in 2D and 3D in select theaters and IMAX.
