Thirty years after the original Blade Runner film was released, today we get our first glimpse at next year’s much-anticipated sequel via a short teaser video.
Returning to the neon-lit Los Angeles of the future, Blade Runner 2049 stars Ryan Gosling, Ana de Armas, Jared Leto and Harrison Ford, who returns to play an older version of his original character, Deckard. The official film synopsis reads: “Thirty years after the events of the first film, a new blade runner, LAPD Officer K (Ryan Gosling), unearths a long-buried secret that has the potential to plunge what’s left of society into chaos. K’s discovery leads him on a quest to find Rick Deckard (Harrison Ford), a former LAPD blade runner who has been missing for 30 years.”
Directed by Denis Villeneuve, and with the movie’s original director, Ridley Scott, on board as executive producer, this new release is bound to be ever bit as epic as the original.
Blade Runner 2049 is set to premiere 6th October, 2017. Watch the teaser above.
