Here is the first look at Blade Runner 2049, the continuation of the 1982 sci-fi classic that starred Harrison Ford and was directed Ridley Scott. That DNA is sill there: Scott is executive producing the new pic, set 30 years after the end of the original, and Ford is back too, glimpsed in the just-released tease emerging from a doorway, Han Solo-Force Awakens-style, to come face to face with Ryan Gosling, the new blade runner.
Gosling plays LAPD Officer K, who 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 (Ford), a former blade runner who has been missing for 30 years.
Denis Villeneuve directs the new pic, which Warner Bros releases October 6. Ana de Armas, Sylvia Hoeks, Robin Wright, Mackenzie Davis, Carla Juri and Lennie James along with Dave Bautista and Jared Leto co-star. Alcon Entertainment is producing and co-financing with Sony Pictures which is handling distribution overseas.
