This week on The First Run, Chris and Matt discuss ‘Blade Runner 2049’. Ryan Gosling is your new Blade Runner, still on the hunt for rogue replicants. Can acclaimed director Denis Villeneuve (‘Prisoners’, ‘Sicaro’, ‘Arrival’) sequel possibly live up to the hype? Box office returns have been below expectations. Is the public right to ignore the film? Matt and Chris also checked in on the Netflix original, ‘Gerald’s Game’. Is it possible that this is the best adaptation of a Stephen King property this year? Per usual, there’s a rundown of the big releases on Blu-Ray & DVD, featuring the Streaming and Straight To DVD Picks of the Week. The guys share their thoughts on the Harvey Weinstein allegations and then wrap up the show with a special edition of Call It! Chris and Matt predict the Rotten Tomato Scores for the big releases left to come out in 2017, with real stakes this time. Straight gift cards homey.
