Blade Runner 2049 is the upcoming sequel to one the the most venerated sci-fi films ever made, and now Sony has released a new trailer with more footage from director Denis Villeneuve's followup to Ridley Scott’s iconic movie.
Our first look at the creator of replicants
The new footage, which comes after a long and wide-ranging Facebook Live conversation featuring Harrison Ford, Ryan Gosling, and Villeneuve, features more footage of Ryan Gosling’s character, more of Harrison Ford’s reprisal as Rick Deckard, and our first glimpses of Jared Leto (who appears to be some kind of creator of new replicants) and Robin Wright (a police commander).
While the new trailer doesn’t reveal too much new information about the plot of the sequel, it does show off more of the dystopian art style, that seems to be working overtime to replicate the feel of the original Blade Runner — which, judging from what we’ve seen so far, it seems to have nailed. However, we do know that Gosling’s character is somehow special, and that he’s been searching for Deckard for some time.
Blade Runner 2049 hits theaters on October 6th.
