As announced, the trailer for Blade Runner 2049 dropped this morning, and it’s pure dystopian gold. In addition to Harrison Ford and Ryan Gosling, the preview features a milky-eyed Jared Leto as a creator of Replicants. It has the same epic scope as its predecessor, the original Blade Runner released in 1982, with a modern sheen that’s both dazzling and foreboding. Have a look and let us know what you think in the Comments section.
