The marketing for director Denis Villeneuve’s Blade Runner 2049 has so far revealed few details about the sequel to Ridley Scott’s 1982 sci-fi classic. However, the newly released final trailer finally gives some insight into the conflict between LAPD officer K (Ryan Gosling) and the villainous Niander Wallace (Jared Leto).
The footage reveals Wallace’s plan to build millions of obedient Replicants, and his underlying belief that the future of humanity lies in creating that disposable workforce. It’s that plan that places him into conflict with K, which in turn will lead to the reintroduction of Rick Deckard (Harrison Ford) and the total upheaval of K’s life.
Parts of Leto’s voiceover sound identical to lines from the 2036: Nexus Dawn short, but there’s no indication whether he’ll simply repeat that speech in the movie or if that short clip will be added to the film in some way.
The trailer also features an appearance from Gaff (Edward James Olmos), who revealed in March that he’d reprise his role in the film.
Directed by Denis Villeneuve (Arrival) from 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 arrives in theaters on Oct. 6.
