While there has so far been nothing shown in the few pieces of marketing that point towards Blade Runner 2049 needing an R-rating, it’s not really a surprise that the sequel is headed in that direction. After all, the first Blade Runner was also rated R, so it is hopefully a good sign that the filmmakers behind the sequel are confident enough in the project to not try and water it down to fit a PG-13 rating and appeal to a wider audience.

Villeneuve is no stranger to R-rated films either, as his previous directorial efforts PrisonersEnemy, and Sicario all received that rating. In those instances, Villeneuve did not make the films unnecessarily gritty or adult, but instead worked in language and violence for the purposes of the story. This should be similar to the situation with Blade Runner 2049, as it tries to recapture the magic of the original film. It should be exciting to see where Villeneuve takes this franchise in the next installment, for related reasons.

And on a related note: Villeneuve concluded his Screen Daily interview by teasing the possibility of Blade Runner 3, acknowledging that he remains as passionate as ever about the sci-fi genre, even after making this year’s Arrival and now Blade Runner 2049:

“I’m doomed, I love sci-fi. I have two more ideas now that I would love to do. [And] Blade Runner could go on… we’ll see how this one goes.”
