Warner Brothers have just released an announcement trailer for ‘Blade Runner 2049’, a sequel to the 1982 ‘Blade Runner’ which starred Harrison Ford.
Ford is returning as Rick Deckard, a former blade runner, and this announcement trailer sees him come face to face with K (Ryan Gosling), a new blade runner in the LAPD. Joining Ford and Gosling are Jared Leto, Mackenzie Davis, Dave Bautista, Barkhad Abdi, and Robin Wright. Denis Villeneuve is in the director’s chair, with Ridley Scott, who directed the original ‘Blade runner’, on as an executive producer – so all in all this looks like a very promising sequel!
The official synopsis for ‘Blade Runner 2049’ is:
Thirty years after the events of the last film, a new blade runner, LAPD Office 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.
‘Blade Runner 2049’ is set to release in UK cinemas 6th October 2017
