Mackenzie Davis on Blade Runner 3 and Her Experience with Sequels

On a recent episode of Collider Ladies Night we recapped Mackenzie Davis’ journey from her earliest credits to her latest project, HBO Max’s Station Eleven, and of course that meant touching on two massive film franchises Davis has been part of, Terminator and Blade Runner.

In Dennis Villeneuve’s Blade Runner 2049, Davis steps in as Mariette, a Nexus-8 replicant who’s a member of the replicant freedom group. While we don’t get to spend too much time with the character, there was more than enough to spark curious theories about Mariette and also suggest that the character could have a very promising path moving forward in the franchise. However, even though the film enjoyed heaps of fan and critical praise and won two Academy Awards, it seems as though a $259 million total at the worldwide box office on a $150 million production budget held it back from getting a sequel.

During the Blade Runner 2049 portion of our chat, Davis shared some inspiring praise for Villeneuve and then addressed the film’s reception. Check out what she said in this Collider Ladies Night After Hours clip!
