Back in 1982, Ridley Scott took us into the future with Blade Runner, a visionary sci-fi masterpiece that was set in the year 2019. Thirty five years later, Denis Villeneuve (Sicario, Prisoners) takes over where Scott left off, jumping several decades ahead of the 1982 film with this year’s Blade Runner 2049.
Ryan Gosling stars alongside the returning Harrison Ford in the sequel, which just got a new trailer this morning. It’s home to lots of new footage, expanding upon the world and teasing that “the future of the species” is finally going to be unearthed. Find it below.
