Blade Runner 2049 Trailer

"There is an order to things. That's what we do here - we keep order." Warner Bros has unveiled the second trailer for the new Blade Runner 2049 movie, a sequel to the original seminal sci-fi classic Blade Runner, first released in 1982. Directed by one of my favorite working filmmakers, Denis Villeneuve, with Ridley Scott consulting as well, the more we see from this movie, the better it looks. This direct sequel takes place 30 years after the original story, and stars Ryan Gosling as the new LAPD Officer who must find Deckard, who has been missing all this time. Harrison Ford returns to play Deckard, and the new cast of 2049 also includes Ana de Armas, Jared Leto, Dave Bautista, Mackenzie Davis, Robin Wright, Barkhad Abdi, Lennie James as well as David Dastmalchian. This looks absolutely spectacular, with stunning cinematography thanks to Roger Deakins, and the same grittiness as the first one. I so can't wait to see this.

Here's the second official trailer for Denis Villeneuve's Blade Runner 2049, direct from WB's YouTube:

You can still watch the very first announcement teaser for Blade Runner 2049 here, to view more footage.

Thirty years after the events of the first science fiction 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. Blade Runner 2049 is directed by Quebecois filmmaker Denis Villeneuve, of the films Polytechnique, Incendies, Prisoners, Enemy, Sicario and Arrival previously. The screenplay is by Hampton Fancher and Michael Green; based on a story by Ridley Scott and Hampton Fancher; adapted from Philip K. Dick's novel "Do Androids Dream of Electric Sheep?". Warner Bros will release Blade Runner 2049 in theaters everywhere on October 6th later this fall. For more follow @bladerunner. Looking good?

Not the best cut trailer to like set up the tone of the film but it looks stunning! The crew x cast behind this one; it has to succeed! Seeing Deckard old is soo weird lol.

you're complaining about a trailer? you were pretty much stroking yourself over the Black Man trailer...I mean Black Panther

Quanah on Jun 10, 2017


Yes!! This is what i am waiting for! Looks good!

ari smulders on May 8, 2017


Film of the year!

Mr. Nice Guy on May 8, 2017


I just exploded in my pants

LeoForPrez on May 8, 2017


WOW! The look and score of the original. Denis is on it!

deerosa on May 8, 2017


If Harrison Ford dies in this one I'm gonna go all Solo on Greedo.

Duane on May 8, 2017


Hopefully he will. He's getting too old for this sh*t

tarek on May 8, 2017


Hah. You just gave Indy a black spot! #indiana5

Duane on May 8, 2017


That's exactly what is bothering me. He didn't age well. I found him borderline creepy in Indy 4. I can't imagine what he will look like in Indy 5. He should have stopped at last crusade. Indy works well as a trilogy. Better to go the "young indy" way instead of persisting in making sequels.

tarek on May 8, 2017


Not to hi jack this thread and make it Indy (sorry) but they could go meta and cast Alden Ehrenreich as young indy. Meh.... just a thought.

Duane on May 8, 2017


Lots to look forward to this year.

Carpola on May 8, 2017


certainly shaping up that way.

Duane on May 8, 2017


I want to see this now. Right now!!!

kitano0 on May 8, 2017


Well, I never wanted this, but I'm certainly interested now. I have a good feeling about this.

grimjob on May 8, 2017


Looks amazing, can't fucking wait.

Efterklang on May 8, 2017


Looks good. Didn't know McKenzie Davis is in it. Even better!

Sam Guthrie on May 8, 2017


This looks incredible! Love the music, style and cinematography. I'm just hoping Gosling isn't going to scream in this...

THE_RAW_ on May 8, 2017


Or to date a girl.

tarek on May 8, 2017


Oh sexy, this looks so sexy. Movie theater is gonna explode when I see it for the first time ...

shiboleth on May 8, 2017


you sound like a sex offender or a terrorist

LeoForPrez on May 8, 2017


Is there an official composer yet? I hope some one cool gets it. Maybe a musician.

DAVIDPD on May 8, 2017


Johann Johannsson

Zach Newton on May 8, 2017


The guy who scored the Arrival? Let's hope he will deliver a more melodic score this time.

tarek on May 8, 2017


He's capable of melody, for sure -- his rock album Dís (2004) showcases that. However, I hope there are some soundtrack elements and environmental noises that weave themselves into the score also. Vangelis did wonders on BR.

Zach Newton on May 8, 2017


Vangelis score is a masterpiece. Very memorable, and very "visual".

tarek on May 8, 2017


Ok, so I think I've just seen the trailer to my second most anticipated film of the year.

JohnDoeB on May 8, 2017


The first being?

grimjob on May 8, 2017



JohnDoeB on May 9, 2017


you spelled Dunkirk wrong

LeoForPrez on May 9, 2017


... and you're all going to be massively disappointed, because you simply can't step in the same river twice. Half of the trailer contains obvious and banal BR cliches and other half is the stuff that doesn't look or feel like BR at all. Plus, Ford should retired. He barely moves.

Butchy Butch on May 8, 2017


Can't step in the same river twice? Says who? Nonsense.

Charles Knowlton on May 9, 2017


Heraclitus. And the fact you don't understand something, doesn't mean it's nonsense.

Butchy Butch on May 9, 2017



ari smulders on May 9, 2017


But being wrong makes something

LeoForPrez on May 9, 2017


but that's not the case 🙂

Butchy Butch on May 10, 2017


Your response to me makes no sense. Tell me what I don't understand. Don't dodge the question either. WHAT don't I understand?

Charles Knowlton on May 12, 2017


It is almost impossible to recreate the Blade Runner effect, that's sure, but you can reinvent Blade Runner. And that's what Villeneuve is trying to do probably. and yes, I would do without Harrison Ford too. I wasn't thrilled when I knew that he was part of the movie.

tarek on May 9, 2017


I'd agree with you. Reinvetion is the way to go. But, unfortunately, in half of the shots they're tying simply to copy, other half are... crap. Go through the trailer again. It's like fucking Xerox. If it was directed by Scott I wouldn't even bother to watch it. Villeneuve gives a little hope, but I can't honestly say I see his hand in this trailer. All I see for now is producers desperation. We'll see

Butchy Butch on May 9, 2017


Or you can explore the lore from a new and fresh perspective. For the analogy i would bring the Alien-Aliens case.

tarek on May 11, 2017


Yeah, even in the posters Ford just looks like a guy who's popped in to fix the radiator. What's with the grey tee-shirt? Surely we want to see him in his trench coat from the original?

TAH on May 12, 2017


Empire Strikes Back, Aliens, Godfather 2, etc are disagreeing with you

LeoForPrez on May 9, 2017


Are they? The were made almost an the same time as their predecessors as organic continuation. And I don't remember TESB or Aliens trying desperately to copy the the mood or exact shots for that matter from SW and Alien. So this is the completely different thing.

Butchy Butch on May 10, 2017


Stop changing the argument. Sequels aren't inherently bad. I can list a dozen more that are great.

LeoForPrez on May 10, 2017


I'm not changing anything. I didn't say anything about sequels in general.

Butchy Butch on May 10, 2017


"because you simply can't step in the same river twice" That's what you said

LeoForPrez on May 10, 2017


I have a bad feeling that this movie is gonna bomb and we'll have Ghost in the Shell to blame for that happening.

Moe on May 9, 2017


It will hardly bomb. Maybe it will not be for everyone, but it will be a must see movie. Ghost in the Shell didn't have the Villeneuve-Ridley factor.

tarek on May 9, 2017


Okay, maybe "bomb" waa the wrong word. That is the most negative of movie release terms... Still, I don't see this movie doing very well or as well as we may hope it to do. Let us hope that the director-producer combo you mention will help. Just my 2 cents...

Moe on May 9, 2017


Ghost in a shell wasn't that bad. No 8 of course, but a 7 for people who don't know manga comics. I enjoyed it...

ari smulders on May 9, 2017


Great will most likely be fine

LeoForPrez on May 9, 2017


Nobody went to see the first Bladerunner either. It was a flop.

Carpola on May 9, 2017


I hope Villeneuve take risks. He doesn't need Blade Runner 2049 to be fresh and new. He needs it to tell a compelling story that feels connected to the first, and yet still his own creation--his own making. If anyone can pull it off, Denis can. Question is, did he pull it off?

Quanah on May 9, 2017


Answer: Of course! (we don't know).

tarek on May 10, 2017


Well, if he doesn't he'll be ending a streak of quality film-making. Prisoners, Sicario, Arrival - top class.

TAH on May 12, 2017


those were all mediocre for me

Quanah on Jun 10, 2017


Second trailer? Wasn't this the first trailer?

ragethorn on May 10, 2017


Yeah I'm sure the 'first' trailer was just the teaser.

TAH on May 12, 2017
