WHO: Arrival screenwriter Eric Heisserer, acting director Cary Fukunaga, producer Elizabeth Banks, producers Grant Hill and Roger Birnbaum, executive producer Dan Lin, and Jennifer Todd.

WHAT: Almost nine months after it won the top prize at the 87th Academy Awards, director Denis Villeneuve’s latest film, Blade Runner 2049, will finally land in theaters in North America on Friday.

But after acclaim for his similarly stylized 2015 entry, Sicario, Blade Runner came up short with most critics. None have given it enough of a boost to rank as one of the year’s most popular picks among action-movie prognosticators. For that, you’ll have to look for Dwayne Johnson’s film Rampage, though whether people will look for this film at their local multiplex when it comes out in late April seems more tenuous.

The movie that crushed this category in the past was The Dark Knight Rises, which had almost identical box-office figures to Blade Runner, despite being the biggest comedy released this year. Perhaps as a concession to fanboys, and other non-hardcore fanboys for that matter, Villeneuve’s film has done so-so reviews — 49% on Rotten Tomatoes. Still, a trailer has already eclipsed Warner Bros.’s previous outing with the Blade Runner series.

So what will Blade Runner 2049 look like on opening weekend? How does this movie compare to its grim predecessors? How will the Oscar race look?
