The old Blade Runner is back.
The first teaser trailer for Blade Runner 2049, the 2017 sequel to Ridley Scott's 1982 science fiction/noir classic Blade Runner, has been released, giving us our first look at the new movie from director Denis Villeneuve and co-producer Scott.
According to the film synopsis from Entertainment Weekly, Blade Runner 2049 is set thirty years after the events of the first film, and focuses on a new blade runner, LAPD Officer K (Ryan Gosling), who 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.
The one-minute, 45-second teaser opens in 2049 Los Angeles, as we hear a voiceover from Rick Deckard saying "Replicants are like any other machine -- They're either a benefit or a hazard. If they're a benefit, it's not my problem."
We then see Officer K crossing a barren, orangish-yellow landscape and coming across a seemingly empty building. Going inside, Officer K finds a familiar piano inside a lavish apartment and hears Deckard from behind.
"I had your job once," begins Deckard as he steps out of the shadows into view aiming at a gun at Officer K. "I was good at it."
"Things were simpler then," replies Officer K.
