Blade Runner 2049 has been getting rave reviews and the film isn’t even out yet, but there’s another story that’s been making its rounds about the film. That story is about the time Harrison Ford accidentally punched co-star Ryan Gosling in a choreographed fight scene gone wrong.
The story started as a rumor, but its validity was recently confirmed by the actors themselves in an interview on the Graham Norton Show. Ford and Gosling recounted the exact moment the punch happened, as well as Ford’s attempt at an apology.
Since the punch occurred while cameras were rolling, Norton, the show’s host, provided a still of the moment after Ford’s fist connected with Gosling’s face. It’s a picture truly worthy of a thousand words.
Blade Runner 2049 is the follow-up to Blade Runner, the 1982 neo-noir sci-fi thriller about a group of android hunters named Blade Runners who forcibly decommission rogue, humanoid robots called Replicants. Directed by Ridley Scott, the film is considered one of the greatest sci-fi films of all time. Blade Runner 2049 takes places 30 years after the conclusion of Blade Runner and unites Gosling’s LAPD Officer K with Ford’s Rick Deckard from the original film.
Debuting in theaters on Oct. 6, Blade Runner 2049 is a production of Alcon Entertainment directed by Denis Villeneuve and starring Ryan Gosling, Harrison Ford, Ana de Armas, Sylvia Hoeks, Robin Wright, Mackenzie Davis, Carla Juri, Lennie James, Dave Bautista and Jared Leto.
