The classic sci-fi movie “Blade Runner” is getting a sequel, 35 years after the original’s release. The new movie, “Blade Runner 2049” will have Harrison Ford return to his classic role as Rick Deckard and introduces a new series of characters portrayed by Ryan Gossling, Dave Bautista and Jared Leto. The movie hits theaters on Oct. 6 and the soundtrack for the film hit on Oct. 5.
The Blade Runner 2049 soundtrack includes a score from Hans Zimmer and Benjamin Wallfisch. Along with the score tracks, there are also songs by everyone from Elvis Presley, Bing Crosby and Lauren Daigle. There are 24 tracks on the soundtrack, with 19 of them composed by Jams Zimmer and Benjamin Wallfisch.
The other songs on the Blade Runner 2049 soundtrack are “Summer Wind” and “One for My Baby (And One More for the Road)” by Frank Sinatra, “Suspicious Minds” and “Can’t Help Falling in Love” by Elvis Presley and “Almost Human” by Lauren Daigle.
The score for the original “Blade Runner” movie earned Vangelis a BAFTA and Golden Globe nomination so Zimmer and Wallfisch have a lot to live up to. Jóhann Jóhannsson was the original composer but he left and turned all the duties over to Hans Zimmer and Benjamin Wallfisch. This was yet another accomplishment in a big year for Zimmer, who also went out on tour with his music scores.
