The first official trailer for sequel to “Blade Runner” came out on Monday and if it is to be believed from the brief look, “Blade Runner 2049” is going to be everything fans of the original have been longing for. Starring Ryan Gosling and Harrison Ford, the story is set 35 years after the original film and the 2049 Los Angeles looks as bleak and dystopian as it ever did.

‘Blade Runner 2049’ tells us more about a dystopian future

While the scene is similar, fans are now going to learn more about how the dying and stark city is evolving and how both sides of its residential population – humans and replicants – are getting along.

Replicants are biological androids that look just like us, but are manufactured to do certain tasks on a, shall we say, time-limited basis. The scene has again been set against an ugly and futuristic Los Angeles, with hoards of people thronging the streets, backlit by the never-ending neon glow of overpowering and constant ads.

While the dystopian scene looks pretty much like the original, things have changed in the Los Angeles of the future. As Gizmodo notes in their report about the trailer, something catastrophic appears to have happened in the city between the 1982 film and the latest, upcoming release of “Blade Runner 2049.” Both hints in the trailer itself, as well as the official synopsis of the film, talk about “what’s left of society.”

In the sequel, Ryan Gosling takes the role of a “Blade Runner,” or LAPD officer whose job it is to track down rogue “replicants” who have managed to escape their slavery and are now threatening public safety.

As Gosling’s character gets involved in a dark conspiracy, he comes across Harrison Ford, star of the original film where he played Rick Deckard, doing the exact same job. Deckard has been hiding in an abandoned building, keeping off the grid for years, but Gosling's character has questions for him.

2049 Los Angeles portrayed in a magical but somber way

The visuals in the sequel are stunning, backed by a suitably somber soundtrack, and looks like it is just what fans ordered in the way of a follow up to the original “Blade Runner” movie. Ridley Scott has added his usual magical touch in his direction of “Blade Runner 2049,” while Roger Deakins’ cinematography is simply amazing. While the trailer hasn’t released a whole lot more of the plot than originally announced, we do get to see a lot more of the action.

Other main stars of ‘Blade Runner 2049’ and their respective roles

As for the stars in the "Blade Runner" sequel, besides Ford and Gosling, there are impressive performances by Jared Leto, as a replicant maker by the name of Wallace.

In the trailer he can be heard explaining that each civilization has been built “off the back of a disposable workforce” but saying he can only make so many. We then see him comforting a “newly-born” replicant and wishing it a “happy birthday.” Robin Wright is playing some kind of rather sinister commanding officer, who tells us “there is an order to things.”

Ana de Armas stars in the sequel as a character by the name of Joi, who Gizmodo figures is a replicant from the way she appears in one of the many, endless ads. Actor Dave Bautista also features in the trailer, but it is not clear what role he is actually playing. Daryl Hannah as Pris and Rutger Hauer as Roy Batty appear to be reprising their roles as rogue replicants. Last, but by no means least, Edward James Olmos (well known for the “Battlestar Galactica” TV series) reprises his role as the enigmatic Gaff, another Blade Runner.

Blade Runner 2049" is set to be released in theaters on October 6. Until then, enjoy the trailer included below.
