We’re a little over a month out from the debut of BLADE RUNNER 2049 and this new international TV spot (a trailer, really) now gives us a clearer picture of just what’s going on in this plot. Previously, we knew that Ryan Gosling stars as the new Blade Runner, LAPD Officer K, whose quest leads him on a search to find Rick Deckard (Harrison Ford). Now, however, it’s clear that Jared Leto‘s villainous Niander Wallace not only has an army of Replicants in the making but also the rest of the “guns” of the law enforcement division under his swayminus K. Well now, that’s much more exciting, thank you!
Director Denis Villeneuve reteams with frequent cinematographer Roger Deakins for the sci-fi story with Ridley Scott as executive producer; BLADE RUNNER scribe Hampton Fancher and Michael Green penned the screenplay for the sequel. The film also stars Robin Wright, Barkhad Abdi, Dave Bautista, Ana de Armas, Sylvia Hoeks, Lennie James, and Mackenzie Davis. BLADE RUNNER 2049 opens in theaters on October 6th.
