It sends him on a quest to find OG blade runner Rick Deckard (Ford), who's been MIA for the past three decades.
Fans are one step closer to the sequel to "Blade Runner"-"Blade Runner 2049" starring Harrison Ford and Ryan Gosling. It's a striking image, but in the world of 2017, it's hard to imagine a universe where Atari even exists in the year 2049, let alone on the scale Blade Runner 2049 presents.
Aside from the evil undertones in Leto's performance, there are several things the trailer unspools about the exciting-looking film. By the early '90s, it became one of the first films to receive a director's cut, which brought back director Ridley Scott's original (and even slower and moodier) vision.
Video: The second trailer for Blade Runner 2049 is here and, as expected, it's just undeniably handsome. The sequel's lead also features in the clip - Officer K, played by Ryan Gosling. So it could be a very interesting product placement, or an ad for Atari. Those anxious that Blade Runner 2049 might go down that same road can take solace in a couple of things: (1) There's still so much we don't know, and more importantly, (2) Denis Villeneuve.
In a recent interview with Deadline, Villeneuve spoke about the challenges of making a sequel to such an iconic film.
Another intriguing difference between Blade Runner 2049 and the original film is its use of color. I think we just sat around a table pretty soon after he arrived and just started working.
"Blade Runner 2049" opens in theaters and IMAX on October 6, 2017.
