With ticket prices increasing year after year, casual moviegoers may find it difficult to justify spending upwards of ten dollars a person for a night out at the movies (even more if they're in the mood for popcorn). It's often easier—and just as entertaining—to wait until a film arrives on home video or Netflix, Amazon Prime, or another streaming service.
Then again, there are some movies that are only worth seeing in theaters—on the biggest screen possible. In those cases, IMAX is your friend, and Blade Runner 2049 just might be worth the expensive ticket, partly thanks to the involvement of director of photography and cinematographer Roger Deakins.
If you don't know anything about Deakins, take some time to watch this supercut of his work and bask in his glory. He's worked with some of the top directors in the industry on everything from critically acclaimed dramas like Fargo and No Country for Old Men to blockbuster action thrillers like Skyfall. Film buffs trust Deakins' eye, and it's already clear from the Blade Runner 2049 trailer that he's put together some stunning visuals.
