The new trailer gives us another look at the follow-up which picks up thirty years after the events of the first film following the new Blade Runner, LAPD Officer K (Ryan Gosling) after he discovers a awful secret that could send what is left of society into chaos prompting him to go on a search for Rick Deckard (Harrison Ford) who has been missing since we saw him escape with the replicant Rachel (Sean Young). When he says “we were being hunted”, it could either be referring to the other replicants or a red herring to makes viewers think that. Check out the new trailer below, and let us know if October 6 can round that bend quickly enough. Warner Bros. has released the third trailer for Denis Villeneuve’s Blade Runner 2049 online now (see the video above), ahead of Christopher Nolan’s Dunkirk (which it will likely play in front of this weekend) as well as the studio’s upcoming Hall H panel at San Diego Comic-Con this weekend. In the long-awaited sequel, Blade Runner 2049, Deckard will resurface after three decades on the run.
“We are still exploring the themes of memories and empathy”, Villeneuve said.
Dick’s Do Androids Dream of Electric Sheep?, the movie is set after the events of the original Blade Runner.
Regardless, Scott must believe in the movie enough to even warrant producing the sequel after all these years, and he might even use it as a launchpad for future stories.
