“Your story isn’t over yet. There’s still a page left.”
This morning, Warner Brother Pictures released a new full length trailer for their highly anticipated sequel, Blade Runner 2049.
From Oscar nominated director Denis Villeneuve (Arrival, Sicario) and produced by Ridley Scott (Alien, The Martian), Blade Runner 2049 features a screenplay from original Blade Runner screenwriter Hampton Fancher and Michael Green (Alien: Covenent, Logan). Same as the original film, the sequel will feature characters adapted from author Philip K. Dick’s novel Do Androids Dream of Electric Sheep?.
Set thirty years after the events of Ridley Scott’s original 1982 cult classic Blade Runner, the film stars La La Land‘s Ryan Gosling as LAPD Officer K (no relation to Men in Black‘s Agent K), a new generation blade runner who unearths a long lost secret that has the potential to throw what is left of human and replicant society into complete chaos, possibly at the hands of Jared Leto’s villainous role. This discovery leads K on a quest to find Harrison Ford’s Rick Deckard, a former blade runner who has been missing for close to thirty years.
Contrary to the year featured in the title, Blade Runner 2049 arrives in theaters on October 6th of this year.
