The long wait is over as the first footage from director Denis Villeneuve‘s sequel Blade Runner 2049 hits the Internet. It’s been almost 35 years since Ridley Scott‘s original captured the hearts and minds of sci-fi fans everywhere and this new footage promises a return to the bleak future of Replicants and Blade Runners.
Officer K (Ryan Gosling) is on the hunt for Rick Deckard (Harrison Ford) after K finds a long forgotten and buried secret that threatens to turn his world upside down. This looks like their first meeting.
The look of the footage feels right, that yellow dust filled background sets the tone quickly. What has K found out and why does he need Deckard? Hopefully any other trailers won’t spell everything out and leave some mystery for the big screen to explain.
Here’s the official synopsis from Trailer Track:
Gosling and Ford are joined by Ana de Armas, Robin Wright, Jared Leto, Barkhad Abdi, Lennie James, Mackenzie Davis, and Sylvia Hoeks. That is a talented cast.
Blade Runner 2049 hits theater screens October 6th, 2017.
