'Blade Runner 2049' trailer is out

The new trailer introduces us to Reynolds' role as a cop, embroiled in a mystery that leads him to meet Deckard (Harrison Ford).

Gosling prefers ketchup. The movie also stars Robin Wright, Ana de Armas and the great Dave Bautista beating people up because that's how they cast every former pro wrestler. It's a striking image, but in the world of 2017, it's hard to imagine a universe where Atari even exists in the year 2049, let alone on the scale Blade Runner 2049 presents.

"Blade Runner 2049" is set thirty years after the events of the first film. Thankfully, this new trailer does not feature any major spoilers of any kind. The original movie was directed by Ridley Scott and the sequel has Denis Villeneuve in the director's chair.

Video: The second trailer for Blade Runner 2049 is here and, as expected, it's just undeniably lovely.

This stunning trailer certainly captures the iconic visuals from the original film, which was lauded for its groundbreaking style and take on the sci-fi genre.

Late previous year, we'd seen a teaser for Blade Runner 2049 showing a stark desert terrain with some somehow dystopian-looking sculptures, through which a certain Gosling traverses to get to a certain (gasp!) role-reprising Harrison Ford (as Rick Deckard). We see nearly none of the first's iconic portrait of a cramped, dirty, neon-drenched city, which has been replaced by fancier technology, bigger special effects and, in the trailer's second half, blindingly bright desert locales. Joi's character isn't clearly defined yet, but based on the trailer, she's likely K's love interest and very possibly a Replicant herself.

I mean, there is a lot to unpack here and we'll do so in a separate post.

Blade Runner 2049 opens October 5. Harrison Ford was hot off Raiders of the Lost Ark and the first two Star Wars films when he starred in Blade Runner.
