RT : Another thing that was glaring about the sequel. The first movie had two recognizably Asian characters. 2049: None.

RT : Some sci-fi movies envision a future America that's almost entirely white. Where do all the rest of the people go?

Like the original, 2049 uses Asianness as a visual cue for the future. You might have missed it, since the film wholly lacks Asian characters. Save for Dave Bautista, who is part-Filipino and played the Replicant Sapper (spoiler: he is promptly killed off), there are zero. I've seen it twice now, and spotted one or two others in passing; none with speaking roles.

The grimy, glitched-out world we saw in Blade Runner is back and beautifully remastered. As the title conveys, Blade Runner 2049 picks up decades after the original film—a sort of post-post-apocalypse, more vividly, and terrifyingly imagined than 1980s cinematography could ever allow. via Pocket

Cyberpunk Chinatowns have become a meme in science fiction ... so where are the Asian people?
