Benjamin Wallfisch is honored to have been nominated alongside Academy Award® winning composer Hans Zimmer in the 2018 Critics' Choice Awards, for their original score for BLADE RUNNER: 2049. The universally critically acclaimed film, directed by Denis Villeneuve, stars Ryan Gosling and Harrison Ford.
Officer K (Ryan Gosling), a new Blade Runner for the Los Angeles Police Department, unearths a long-buried secret that has the potential to plunge what's left of society into chaos. His discovery leads him on a quest to find Rick Deckard (Harrison Ford), a former Blade Runner who's been missing for 30 years.
