BLADE RUNNER 2049 EXPERIENCE

Have you ever wondered if you’re a replicant? Now’s your chance to find out, while also sampling some sweet Johnny Walker whisky!

Presented by Alcon Entertainment and Johnnie Walker, the Blade Runner 2049 experience will feature an art gallery, an Oculus VR experience, and a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity to step into the unique world of Alcon Entertainment’s new film, months before its October 6th theatrical release. The experience will replicate the movie’s setting, complete with the unique sights, sounds and atmosphere of Los Angeles, circa 2049.

Setting the tone, the experience begins as guests enter through a gallery of art from “Blade Runner 2049.” An Oculus VR experience will immerse visitors in the world of the film. For the first time at San Diego Comic Con, fans will be transported into the surreal world of Blade Runner 2049 via D-Box chairs in an immersive 24-seat theatre using unparalleled motion technology enhancing the epic REPLICANT PURSUIT Virtual Reality experience powered by Oculus.

The D-Box chairs are specially programmed to sync with the action on the screen, fully immersing the viewer into the Blade Runner 2049 world. This groundbreaking technology gives fans the opportunity to feel the sensation of pitching and rolling through the alleys of dystopian Los Angeles.

But that is just the start: as the VR presentation ends, guests will walk into a neon-lit Los Angeles street scene, where they should be prepared to experience what our potential future holds, including impromptu tests to determine if they are humans…or replicants.

The actual Spinner from the new film will be on display, along with other vehicles featured in the film. Costumes worn by the stars of “Blade Runner 2049” will also be on display, and actors dressed in wardrobe from the film will be amongst the crowd, furthering the sense that guests have stepped into the Los Angeles of the future. There will also be giveaways for fans, along with other surprises.

In addition, for the first time, fans will get an exclusive peek of the limited-edition Johnnie Walker Black Label The Director’s Cut bottle, inspired by the original, elusive prop from the first film. Details on this limited-edition whiskey blend will be announced in the coming months. Guests 21 and over will also have the chance to enjoy a Johnnie Walker whisky tasting experience.
