Following a livestream on Facebook this morning, Warner Bros. has dropped a brand new trailer for Denis Villeneuve’s Blade Runner 2049. It’s mysterious as hell, but definitely delivers in the visuals department.
Given Villeneuve’s pretty much perfect track record at this point, it’s hard not to think this film is going to deliver in spades, but it’s also easy for trailers to make any movie look incredible, especially when you’re dealing with a sequel to one of the most beloved sci-fi movies of all time. This one could go either way, but we’re fairly confident in its chances at this stage.
If you’re curious, here’s the official plot synopsis to help make some sense of what you just watched:
Officer K (Ryan Gosling), a new blade runner for the Los Angeles Police Department, unearths a long-buried secret that has the potential to plunge what’s left of society into chaos. His discovery leads him on a quest to find Rick Deckard (Harrison Ford), a former blade runner who’s been missing for 30 years.
Blade Runner 2049 is out October 6th and we are suitably hyped. Are you?
