The story is far from over. New trailer Monday.
As is often the case, the announcement for the upcoming trailer came with a 15-second teaser (a trailer for a trailer?); check it out below:
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.

All of this comes hot on the heels of two new posters for Blade Runner 2049, directed by Denis Villeneuve, released on Friday; as with the recent Dark Tower poster series, each features one of the film’s key characters: Rick Deckard (played by Harrison Ford, reprising the role he played in the original Blade Runner) and Officer K (Ryan Gosling). They were Tweeted out captioned “You know his past. Discover his future” and “A new civilization begins now” respectively.
Check out the trailer and synopsis for the original Blade Runner, directed by Ridley Scott and released in 1982, below.
Official Synopsis: Deckard (Harrison Ford) is forced by the police Boss (M. Emmet Walsh) to continue his old job as Replicant Hunter.

Before starting the job, Deckard goes to the Tyrell Corporation and he meets Rachel (Sean Young), a Replicant girl he falls in love with.
