Warner Bros. Reveals Trailer for Denis Villeneuve's 'Blade Runner 2049'

It's great; it tells you everything you need to know about where Deckard when we meet him 30-years-later.

The movie is being directed by Denis Villeneuve and also stars Robin Wright, Jared Leto, Dave Bautista and Barkhad Abdi.

The trailer has both incredible and disturbing imagery of the future, with Ryan Gosling as a new Blade Runner, or agent who hunts down clones that have gone rogue and turned against humans.

Ryan Gosling plays the new Blade Runner, Officer K, with Harrison Ford returning as the one from three decades ago, Rick Deckard. It's worth noting that Villeneuve isn't pioneering new ground here by offering a stagnant world of technology - he's simply re-creating and expanding on Scott's dire outlook from the original film. That's surely intentional, as Alcon Entertainment and Warner Brothers - along with director Denis Villeneuve (Arrival) - don't want to reveal too much about the story and whatever surprises await. Ridley Scott has a lot to live up to, but if this trailer is anything to go by, he might just pull it off.

There are so many sequels and reboots in the movie business these days that it can be sometimes hard to get excited when another one is announced, but Blade Runner absolutely does not fall into that category. "It was a really gratifying experience, I had a good time".

The sequel to the original Blade Runner movie has been in the pipeline for a very long time. I think we just sat around a table pretty soon after he arrived and just started working. It made me question what it meant to be a human being and my ability to recognize the hero from the villain.

Blade Runner 2049 opens on October 6th. When all three combine forces on Blade Runner 2049, the long-awaited sequel to the sci-fi classic, you get a movie where every single frame deserves to be paused, admired, and screenshot.
