Here's where you can check out the original Blade Runner on the big screen before the sequel arrives

Probably the most anticipated movie of the year (sorry The Last Jedi) is out really soon.

Yep, Ryan Gosling and Robin Wright will be joining Harrison Ford in Blade Runner 2049, directed by Denis Villeneuve (Sicario, Arrival, Prisoners) when it is released in Irish cinemas on 6 October, and to say that we here in JOE are excited to see it is a bit of an understatement.

Awesome.

Anyways, it is obviously the sequel to the 1982 Ridley Scott-directed original, also starring Harrison Ford, and pretty much one of - if not THE - most influential science fiction movies ever made.

For those who have never seen it, or maybe those who haven't had the pleasure of catching it on the big screen, or even those who have and maybe just want to see it again, you're in luck.

A number of cinemas around the country are showing Blade Runner: The Final Cut in the week leading up the the sequel's release.
