Warner Bros. has released a teaser trailer for “Blade Runner 2049,” in which we get our first glance at Robin Wright’s character.
“There is an order to things,” Wright says. “That’s what we do here. We keep order.”
Also in the trailer, LAPD Officer K’s (Ryan Gosling) face is left bloody as he holds a gun. We also see clips from previous teasers, including the meeting between Gosling and Harrison Ford, who reprises his character, Rick Deckard, from 1982’s “Blade Runner.”
The sequel to “Blade Runner,” written by Hampton Fancher and Michael Green, is set several decades after Ridley Scott’s 1982 original, which Fancher also had a hand in writing. The movies are based on Philip K. Dick’s novel “Do Androids Dream of Electric Sheep.”
Thirty years after the events of the first film, a new Blade Runner, LAPD Officer K (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 (Ford), a former LAPD blade runner who has been missing for 30 years.
Scott’s original classic depicted a dystopian Los Angeles in which genetically-engineered human replicants are created by a powerful corporation. Replicants are not permitted on Earth, and those replicants who deny the ban are hunted by police operatives called Blade Runners.
Ana de Armas, Jared Leto and Mackenzie Davis also co-star in the futuristic dystopia, directed by Denis Villeneuve (“Arrival”). Scott returns as producer. Sony is financing the film with Alcon Entertainment. Warner Bros. Pictures will distribute the film in North America, and Sony will handle the property worldwide.
The film opens on October 6, nationwide. The trailer is expected to debut on Monday during a live Q&A with Gosling, Ford and Villeneuve. Two character posters were revealed earlier this week.
