One aspect of the Blade Runner universe is its brutal setting and intense pacing, which meant a lot of action scenes for the two stars, and it also meant Gosling had to take a few punches in the face from Ford.
"I didn't work on my dodging," Gosling admitted when talking about the training they went through for the action sequences.
"I did a lot of boxing and uh, the idea of boxing is to hit the guy," Ford said.
"You did a wonderful job," Gosling quipped.
Blade Runner 2049 -- directed by Denis Villeneuve and co-starring Robin Wright, Jared Leto, Ana de Armas, Dave Bautista and Mackenzie Davis -- hits theaters Oct. 6.
