It’s been 35 years since the original film made its indelible mark on the sci-fi genre, but there are still pages left in the story of Blade Runner.
Five months out from the release, Warner Bros. Pictures has finally given us a look at its long-coming sequel, Blade Runner 2049. The continuation of the neo noir, sci-fi classic pits Ryan Gosling as our new protagonist, while Harrison Ford reprises his role as the original Blade Runner, Rick Deckard. The new trailer showcases all of the same cyberpunk and dystopian elements that earned the original’s cult following. It also gives us looks at characters played by the likes of Jared Leto (Suicide Squad, Requiem for a Dream) and Dave Bautista (Guardians of the Galaxy, Spectre).
