LAS VEGAS (Reuters) - Warner Bros presented "Wonder Woman", "Blade Runner 2049" and other upcoming films at CinemaCon, a four-day movie convention held in Las Vegas.

Oscar nominee Ryan Gosling, star of the anticipated sequel to 1982 cult film "Blade Runner", appeared at the event on Wednesday with a lineup of other stars.

"I feel so lucky to be a part of this film because it's so iconic and it had such an impact on me, it had such an impact on cinema in general," the actor said of the movie, presented by both Warner Bros and Sony Pictures and due out later this year.

Other films presented included the DC comic book adaptation of "Wonder Woman" starring Israeli actress Gal Gadot and "King Arthur: Legend of the Sword", directed by Guy Ritchie.
