Ryan Gosling is on the run through a future California in the new trailer for "Blade Runner 2049". The cinematographer this time round is the legendary Roger Deakins and the images spewed across the screen are worthy of the quality he is so often hailed for. The first full trailer felt more conceptual, reminding (or informing) viewers of how central Replicants are to the story and how those who create these artificial beings might develop a God complex. What we see is partly ruinous, partly neon-lit city scape. Harrison Ford will be returning to his role in the new movie.
Taking place three decades after the events of the original film, Blade Runner 2049 will see new blade runner, LAPD Officer K (Ryan Gosling) discover an incredibly risky secret that could plunge society, or what's left of it, into extreme chaos.
The trailer also sees Harrison Ford's Rick Deckard explaining his experience to Ryan Gosling's LAPD Officer K: "I covered my tracks, scrambled the records". "If this gets out", House of Cards' Robin Wright's character insists, "we've bought ourselves a war".
Movie studios probably release too many trailers for their blockbuster properties these days. We'll find out what they're looking for when Blade Runner 2049 hits theaters on October 6th. Ana de Armas, Jared Leto, Mackenzie Davis, Carla Juri, Barkhad Abdi, Edward James Olmos, and Dave Bautista round out the star-studded cast.
