Harrison Ford Returns in the ‘Blade Runner 2049’ Trailer Debut!

Warner Bros. Pictures just shared the official announcement trailer for Blade Runner 2049, directed by Sicario and Prisoners’ Denis Villeneuve.

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.

The domino initially dropped when Alcon Entertainment announced that Ryan Gosling would star with Harrison Ford returning to his role as Rick Deckard. The above synopsis sounded a bit like Star Wars: The Force Awakens, although this trailer seems to reveal that the duo connect much earlier than when Luke appears in the final frames of Star Wars.

The casting process was insane, starting with when they cast Robin Wright, best remembered as the beauty in The Princess Bride, and now playing the powerful and gorgeous First Lady in Netflix’s blockbuster series “House of Cards”.

It only got better from there, stringing together monstrous name including Dave BautistaKnock Knock‘s Ana de Armas, Dutch actress Sylvia Hoeks and even Carla Juri of Wetlands.

Then, another one of the best actresses on television was announced  as part of this Ridley Scott film: Mackenzie Davis, who starred in Scott’s The Martian, as well as AMC’s astounding tech drama “Halt and Catch Fire”. Jared Leto was also recently attached to an undisclosed role.

The sequel is set several decades after the original. It is written by Hampton Fancher and Michael Green, and succeeds the initial story by Fancher and David Peoples based on Philip K. Dick’s novel “Do Androids Dream of Electric Sheep.”

An October 6, 2017 release is planned through Warners.

  • Roger Deakins is a beast! Very excited!

      Deakins is amazing but visually Incendies is Villeneuves best and Deakins wasn’t DP on that one. Seems like Villeneuve gets the best out of everybody he works with. See Enemy!

      • I wasn’t huge on Enemy, dipped into the slow category for me (as opposed to suspenseful). Deakins has a full body of work that speaks for itself, so I’m pumped!

    EXCELLENT teaser!!!!!!

    “Then, another one of the best actresses on television was announced as part of this Ridley Scott film: Mackenzie Davis, who starred in Scott’s The Martian, as well as AMC’s astounding tech drama “Halt and Catch Fire””

    Also in the very enjoyable “Freaks of Nature” – a more appropriate reference for this site.

    All my emoticons ejaculated on the floor

  • I’m going to try very hard to keep my expectations for this at bay.. the original is precious to me.

  • PsychoMantis18

    Well that was a bit disappointing.

    • Mehliens

      I’m glad the teaser is short and basically shows nothing. Not sure if I want see the obligatory 7 minute spoilerfest that comes afterwards. Its going to be cool as fuck but… spoilers. Not sure about the updated Vangelis, I’d rather have just the original soundtrack, fuck those ‘edgy’ updates.
