Sony Pictures UK released a new international trailer for Blade Runner 2049 on Tuesday. The clip offers new glimpses of Officer K (Ryan Gosling) and Joi (Ana de Armas) sharing home life, as well as the gritty destruction wreaking havoc in the dystopian world.
The highly-anticipated sequel already has already released teasers and trailers hinting at the neon world that awaits. Though plot details are thin, the trailer promises the noir, atmospheric beauty that director Denis Villeneuve is known for. To say the film is in good hands would be putting it mildly. Villeneuve’s last film, Arrival, received eight Academy Award nominations, including Best Picture and Best Director.
For the sequel, Villeneuve has once again partnered with composer Jóhann Jóhannsson, who will be composing the film’s score. His work on Arrival, Sicario, and Prisoners has produced the moody, haunting soundtracks that pair so well with Villeneuve’s understated style.
Blade Runner 2049’s synopsis follows:
Thirty years after the events of the first film, a new blade runner, LAPD Officer 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.
From executive producer Ridley Scott and director Denis Villeneuve, Blade Runner 2049 stars Ryan Gosling, Harrison Ford, Ana De Armas, MacKenzie Davis, Sylvia Hoeks, Lennie James, Carla Juri, Robin Wright, Dave Bautista and Jared Leto.
While Blade Runner was met with mixed reviews upon its release 35 years ago, the forthcoming sequel has been long awaited by fans who have come to consider the original film a cult classic. While you wait for the film’s release, don’t forget to check out our Blade Runner 2049 suggested reading.
