With less than two months before the sequel to Blade Runner is set to premiere, Sony Picture U.K. released a new international TV trailer for Blade Runner 2049 that combines never-before seen footage with extended cuts of previously-released footage that gives fans a stronger understanding of the movie’s narrative. Two biggest takeaways from this that differentiates it from previous trailers and previews we’ve seen: the emphasis on action and storyline this time over the look and style of the film, as we’ve been treated to in the past; and a slightly better understanding of the motivations behind main villain Niander Wallace’s (Jared Leto) machinations.
Check-out the new international TV spot for Blade Runner 2049 yourself here:
“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.”
Directed by Denis Villeneuve, Blade Runner 2049 stars Harrison Ford, Ryan Gosling, Ana de Armas, Robin Wright, and Leto; and is scheduled for release on October 6, 2017.
