Ryan Gosling Announces Blade Runner 2 Set Visit Contest
Production began on the highly-anticipated Blade Runner 2 back in July, but, unlike many productions, we haven't seen any photos or videos emerge from the set thus far. That said, you could be the first person, aside from the cast and crew, to get a glimpse at the set. The sequel is teaming up with Omaze for an incredible opportunity to help out three worthy causes, and enter for a chance to win a trip to the set in Budapest, Hungary. The contest kicked off earlier this week, with a video from the set featuring Ryan Gosling.
The video, which debuted at Omaze.com, shows Ryan Gosling taking the Omaze cameraman for a ride around the Budapest studio in his golf cart, although the actor wasn't in costume, and we don't get a glimpse at any of the actual sets. With a donation of at least $10, you could enter for a chance to win a trip to the set and meet both Ryan Gosling and Harrison Ford. Here's a description of what the grand prize winner of this Omaze contest will get to experience.
"Replicants and human flesh-beings rejoice! The Blade Runner series is back and Ryan Gosling and Harrison Ford are inviting you and a guest to join them in experiencing a dystopian future in the present day. For the price of a movie ticket, you could fly to Budapest, take a tour of the set and watch a scene come to life. Afraid of spoilers? We can cover your ears for the latter. You'll also get to sit down for a private lunch with Ryan himself, so make sure you come Hungary. (Sorry, we'll see ourselves out.) Some moments are lost in time like tears in the rain; our cameras will make sure this isn't one of them. Pictures, flights and hotel are all included."
Donations for this Omaze campaign will go to three different organizations. The Enough Project conducts financial forensic investigations into the networks responsible for genocide, mass rape, and child soldier recruitment in Africa. The Imerman Angels provides support for cancer patients, survivors and caregivers, teaming them up with a "Mentor Angel" of the same age, who has faced the same type of cancer. The final organization is the Hummingbirds Foundation, a giving circle which tries to make a connection between women and children in need, with those who believe in them, which combines sisterhood, adventure, experiencing local culture, and good citizenship.
Fans who donate just $10 will get 100 entries into this contest, but if you donate more, you'll have even more chances to win, plus you will also receive some amazing merchandise. Fans who donate $100 will receive 1,000 entries into the contest and will also receive a limited edition t-shirt with artwork from the Blade Runner franchise, while the high-rollers that donate $10,000 will receive 100,000 contest entries, along with an original print of Harrison Ford as Deckard, signed by Harrison Ford and artist Steven Vaughan, along with plenty of other prizes in between.
Blade Runner 2 also stars Robin Wright, Ana de Armas, Dave Bautista, Carla Juni, Mackenzie Davis, Lennie James and Jared Leto. Denis Villeneuve is directing from a script by Michael Green and original Blade Runner writer Hampton Fancher. Blade Runner 2 is set for release on October 6, 2017.
