Even the aesthetically punitive backdrop of the "Graham Norton Show" could not ruin the sight of two of the world's hotter men sitting side by side: Harrison Ford and Ryan Gosling promoted their new movie, "Blade Runner 2049" on the talkshow's most recent episode to great comic effect.
And as the sources revealed, "Blade Runner 2049 is a futuristic saga where women are shown to be created through artificial intelligence".
Did she "borrow" one of Ryan Gosling's coats in the film? He is tasked with finding Deckard (Ford) for answers.

Before journalists including Reuters saw "Blade Runner 2049" at advance press screenings, they were read a note from Villeneuve urging not give away any key plot points.
Sure, there are moments that "Blade Runner" fans will fully appreciate, but I'm going to keep the original on high and celebrate "2049" for its own individual strengths. As to which of the eight versions (!) you should revisit - they being the Workprint, the U.S. Theatrical Cut, San Diego Sneak Preview Cut, the International Cut, the U.S. Broadcast Cut, the Director's Cut and the Final Cut - is entirely up to you (we probably recommend the latter), but do go back to maximise your experience of "2049". Its cast includes Ryan Gosling, Harrison Ford, Hiam Abbass, Barkhad Abdi, Ana de Armas, Dave Bautista, David Dastmalchian, Mackenzie Davis, Sylvia Hoeks, Lennie James, Carla Juri, Jared Leto, Edward James Olmos, and Robin Wright.
"Most of what he's done is iconic and he's the common thread in all of that". While the movie does pave the way for another worthwhile installment or more in the Blade Runner franchise, there is reason to wonder if Blade Runner 2049 is too much like its predecessor (itself, a cult hit with a very loyal following, but a cult hit nonetheless) and won't be able to achieve enough crossover appeal to get a followup, as a result.
Perched on a celeb-packed couch with Gosling, Reese Witherspoon and Margot Robbie, the veteran star was explaining how he got involved in the new sci-fi movie reboot ("They finally came up with a good story"), and that he suggested Gosling would be a good fit for the role of Officer K. It is 163 minutes long and is Rated R for violence, some sexuality, nudity and language.
