Awwyiss! The teaser trailer for “Blade Runner 2049” is finally here and it is out of this world.
The highly anticipated sequel to Ridley Scott’s 1982 “Blade Runner” is helmed by “Sicario” director Denis Villeneuve, with a script penned by Michael Green and Hampton Fancher. While the original film was based on author Philip K. Dick’s best-selling book, “Do Androids Dream of Electric Sheep”, “Blade Runner 2049” is set 30 years after the events of the first film.
In speaking about the movie prior to the trailer’s release, Gosling told GQ, “Just in terms of the length and just the whole scope and experience. I’ve never done something so shrouded in secrecy or where there’s so much anticipation.”
The film revolves around a new blade runner, LAPD Officer K (played by 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 (played by Harrison Ford), a former blade runner who has been missing for 30 years.
The trailer opens with a narration by Harrison Ford’s Rick Deckard saying, “Replicants are like any other machine. They’re either a benefit or a hazard. If they’re a benefit, it’s not my problem.”

Slated for release on 6th October 2017, “Blade Runner 2049” also stars Ana de Armas (of “War Dogs” fame), Sylvia Hoeks, Robin Wright, Mackenzie Davis (of “The Martian” fame), Carla Juri, Lennie James, Dave Bautista, and Jared Leto.
