First Teaser for Denis Villeneuve’s ‘Blade Runner’ Sequel Drops Online
Warner Bros. and Alcon Entertainment have debuted the first trailer for Denis Villeneuve-directed Blade Runner 2049 starring Ryan Gosling and Harrison Ford.
Actually, Gosling is the true lead of the Blade Runner sequel, with Ford seemingly playing a key supporting role. The Ridley Scott-produced follow-up to his iconic 1982 sci-fi classic also stars Jared Leto, Robin Wright, Ana de Armas, Sylvia Hoeks, Carla Juri, Barkhad Abdi, and Dave Bautista.
Michael Green and Hampton Fancher penned the screenplay, which follows the initial story by Fancher and David Peoples, based on Philip K. Dick’s novel “Do Androids Dream of Electric Sheep?” about an LAPD blade runner (Rick Deckard) who pursued replicants that had escaped from an off-world colony. Gosling‘s character, mysteriously named K, must find Deckard, who has been missing all this time.
The film opens October 6, 2017. Here’s the trailer for Blade Runner 2049, with cinematography by the Oscar-nominated Roger Deakins.
This is a great teaser. I had my doubts, but now at least I’m interested. You can also check out photos which reveal that Los Angeles hasn’t change much in the thirty years since Deckard (Ford) disappeared.
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.
