Answer to Trivia

The tricky thing about setting films in the near future is that time has a way of catching up with you. For instance, the Chicago Cubs were supposed to win the World Series in 2015 according to Back to the Future II. Interestingly, screenwriters were only a year off as the "lovable loser" Cubs accomplished that feat in 2016.

Several companies that had their logo featured in Blade Runner's dystopian version of 2019 have gone under in the real world which makes a revisit of the original film a bit nostalgic. Notably, Pan Am Airlines and Atari (which only exists currently as a brand) suffered at the hands of the "Blade Runner curse."

With this week's release of Blade Runner 2049, fans of these defunct companies will get another jolt of nostalgia as their logos pop up in the dystopian future of 2049. Check it out now as Blade Runner 2049 is now available on 4K UHD, Blu-ray and DVD.
