New Blade Runner 2049 Trailer Unearths the Future of the Species

The second trailer for director Denis Villeneuve’s Blade Runner 2049 is every bit as gorgeous as the first one, but far more revealing, seemingly pointing to the answer to one of the lingering questions from Ridley Scott’s 1982 sci-fi classic.

“I covered my tracks, scrambled the records,” Harrison Ford’s Deckard tells Ryan Gosling’s K. “We were being hunted.”

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.

Based on Philip K. Dick’s novel Do Androids Dream of Electric Sheep?, Scott’s 1982 original is set in a dystopian future where genetically engineered replicants, virtually indistinguishable from humans, are manufactured by a powerful corporation. Barred from Earth and relegated to performing dangerous or menial jobs on off-world colonies, those replicants that defy the ban are hunted down and killed by “Blade Runners,” such as Ford’s Deckard, who’s drawn out of retirement for one last job.

Based on a script by Hampton Fancher and Michael Green, Blade Runner 2049 stars Ryan Gosling, Harrison Ford, Ana de Armas, Robin Wright, Jared Leto, Barkhad Abdi, Lennie James, Mackenzie Davis and Sylvia Hoeks. Executive produced by Ridley Scott, the film opens Oct. 6.
