Right now, production is currently underway on next year’s highly-anticipated sequel to Blade Runner, which in addition to bringing back Harrison Ford as Rick Deckard and original director Ridley Scott as a producer, is bringing on a whole hell of a lot of new exciting talent as well with director Denis Villeneuve (Prisoners, Sicario, Arrival) and stars Ryan Gosling, Robin Wright, Dave Bautista, Mackenzie Davis, and more.

Now, while practically nothing is known about the sequel still, our first look at the film’s Budapest-based production has arrived… kind of, thanks to the generous hands of Ryan Gosling and Omaze, who are once again putting celebrity star power to good use.

In a new video from the film’s set, Gosling announces the start of a new Blade Runner 2 Omaze campaign, which in addition to offering the lucky winners a paid trip to the film’s set to meet Gosling, Harrison Ford, and some of the film’s other cast members and see a scene from the film be shot, but will also benefit a good cause. Check out the video below:

The contest benefits the Enough Project, Imerman Angels, and The Hummingbirds Project, all of which work to repair social and political problems in Africa, help those suffering from cancer, in addition to benefitting women and children in need. Check out the official description for the contest below:

“Replicants and human flesh-beings rejoice! The Blade Runner series is back and Ryan Gosling and Harrison Ford are inviting you and a guest to join them in experiencing a dystopian future in the present day. For the price of a movie ticket, you could fly to Budapest, take a tour of the set and watch a scene come to life. Afraid of spoilers? We can cover your ears for the latter. You’ll also get to sit down for a private lunch with Ryan himself, so make sure you come Hungary. (Sorry, we’ll see ourselves out.) Some moments are lost in time like tears in the rain; our cameras will make sure this isn’t one of them. Pictures, flights and hotel are all included.”

This is just yet another exciting contest from Omaze for all of you out there, and for those of you out there waiting to learn as much as you can about Blade Runner 2, this sounds like the kind of thing made just for you.

Blade Runner 2 is set to hit theatres on October 6th, 2017.
