'Blade Runner 2049' trailer offers grim glimpse of future

In Blade Runner 2049, Ford reprises his role as Deckard, an ex-blade runner who has been missing for thirty years.

Hampton Fancher - who penned the original movie from Philip K. Dick's 1968 novel Do Androids Dream of Electric Sheep? The film also stars Robin Wright, Barkhad Abdi, Dave Bautista, Ana de Armas, Sylvia Hoeks, Lennie James, Mackenzie Davis, and Jared Leto. LAPD Officer K, played by Ryan Gosling, goes on a hunt for Deckard in order to learn more about a "long-buried secret" that could destroy what remains of the world.

A full-length trailer of the forthcoming film sequel will arrive on Monday, May 8, which will coincide with a live question and answer (Q&A) with Gosling, Ford and director Denis VIlleneuve. And that's just from this incredible new trailer that just dropped! The movie is instead directed by Denis Villeneuve. The movie's grimy, neon-soaked visual design both honors and evolves from the template Ridley Scott set with the original movie-and the musical score, which is clearly inspired by Vangelis' legendary work on Blade Runner, is similarly pitch-perfect. "I did think twice about [doing the film], because Blade Runner, the original is so wonderful, but...there's so few good science fiction films out there, that it deserves another".

The trailer isn't even subtle in making sure you've noticed this.

Deakins stunning cinematography was then presented in the brand new trailer for "Blade Runner 2049", which you can see here or above. Even Gosling joked, "We haven't worked out the flying auto thing yet. but I'm being nicer to my electronics just in case".

Conversely on returning to the world of Blade Runner, Ford displayed his knack for deadpan jokes: "The first time I walked on set, it was a big set, very sophisticated". The film debuts on October 6 in theaters.
