Warner Brothers released the first trailer for Denis Villeneuve‘s long-awaited sci-fi sequel Blade Runner 2049. It doesn’t give away much plot, but comes packed full of atmosphere and familiar audible cues.
The first tease should put away any concerns over Blade Runner 2049 not Looking like the original classic. Denis Villeneuve and cinematographer Roger Deakins have captured and created an incredible landscape that feels fully of the world of Blade Runner while enriching the experience. Sure we don’t really know what’s going on but who cares!
There’s been little known about the film, aside from its cast: Harrison Ford is returning to reprise his role as Rick Deckard, and will be joined by the likes of Ryan Gosling, Robin Wright, Dave Bautista, Mackenzie Davis, and Jared Leto.
Check out the trailer below:
Canadian director Denis Villeneuve has built up an incredible roster of films over the years starting with the deeply unsettling ensemble piece Prisoners, his Toronto-based psycho-drama Enemy, his chilling narrative-flip drug-thriller Sicario and his whip-smart sci-fi tearjerker Arrival, showing he had the chops to handle large effects within a sci-fi world. Though it’s still early and Blade Runner 2049 could trail off into territory where it feels obligated to answer and explain so many of the ethereal and meditative questions Scott’s original left so open, it’s safe to say that with this kind of talent both behind and in front of the camera we could very well get one of the best movies of 2017.
Harrison Ford, Ryan Gosling, Jared Leto, Robin Wright, Dave Bautista, Ana de Armas, Sylvia Hoeks, Carla Juri, Mackenzie Davis and Barkhad Abdi starring in the movie, that will be scored by Jóhann Jóhannsson (Sicario, Arrival) and lensed by the great Roger Deakins.
Here’s the official synopsis:
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.
Blade Runner 2049 opens in theaters Real 3D and IMAX on October 6, 2017.
