As “Blade Runner 2049” draws nearly universal critical acclaim in advance of its release on Friday, the film’s stars, Harrison Ford and Ryan Gosling, have been talking about an infamous, accidental punch that occurred on its set.
Gosling first described the “fight scene” punch to GQ in December. After Ford accidentally clocked Gosling in the face amid a flurry of fake punches, Gosling said that “2049” director Denis Villeneuve told him, “‘Look at it this way – you just got hit by Indiana Jones.'”
Ford and Gosling have since discussed the punch on several late-night shows.
Ford recounted the punch on “The Tonight Show with Jimmy Fallon” this week. “I threw 80 punches,” he said. “Seventy-nine of them missed him, which is the way you’re supposed to do it in a movie.”
Later in the week, Ford and Gosling revealed the actual image of the punch on the “Graham Norton Show.”

“That’s the face of, ‘Oh sh-t, I’m in deep doodoo,'” Ford told Norton of the image.
