Welcome to Gallery 2049! To celebrate the release of the mind-blowing Blade Runner 2049 on 4K Ultra HD, Blu-ray and DVD on 5th February, PosterSpy and Sony Pictures Home Entertainment are inviting you to create your own movie poster inspired by the film. You are welcome to submit static posters to this brief, or to embrace the futuristic style of the film with an animated motion poster – a first for PosterSpy.

The story

From Academy Award®-nominated director Denis Villeneuve comes the much-anticipated follow-up to the acclaimed film Blade Runner.

Thirty years after the events of the first film, a new blade runner, LAPD Officer K (Gosling), unearths a long-buried secret that has the potential to plunge what’s left of society into chaos. K’s discovery leads him on a quest to find Rick Deckard (Ford), a former LAPD blade runner who has been missing for 30 years.
